Bio

Dr. Michael Yan

I have been a family physician in Edmonton since 2002. I discovered the world of fine wine during my residency training. That early interest evolved into a passion for both learning and teaching wine appreciation. I'm now pursuing my sommelier certification through the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET). I will start the rather gruelling WSET Level 4 Diploma progam in September 2018, finishing in early 2020!

Noble Rot Society

In 2007 I started the Noble Rot Society, a local wine tasting group for physicians and spouses. It is my pleasure to organize and lead tastings and dinners for this group and they have allowed me enormous latitude to try some unique and sometimes unorthodox wine events, now well over a hundred of them! If you're looking for ideas for your private wine event please peruse the archive of past events for inspiration!
