Daenna Van Mulligen is a Vancouver based wine writer and accredited sommelier. For more than a decade, she has been recognized via her alter ego WineDiva, a one of a kind, tongue-in-cheek wine website geared toward her very serious passion for all things wine.
Launched in 2008, WineDiva’s sister site WineScores.ca has allowed her to illustrate a more acute approach to wine by scoring reviewed wines out of 100 points and publishing articles on wine, wine regions and producers.
Daenna is an international wine judge; she speaks regularly at consumer as well as trade and media wine events locally and around the world. Daenna has travelled extensively, to every major winemaking country around the world and since 2008 has shared her wine reviews, interviews and wine and travel tales in the Canadian wine publication Vines Magazine, in BC Liquor Store’s TASTE Magazine since 2009, and more recently, Montecristo Magazine.
Additionally, for seven years, she was the wine voice heard weekly on Terry David Mulligan’s radio show, Tasting Room Radio.
Daenna has also made appearances on City TV and Global TV, on Shaw Cable’s Fanny Kiefer’s show Studio 4, and The Rush.
When not at her portable desk, she’s generally in a vineyard, somewhere. You can follow her travels and wine narratives on Instagram and twitter @TheWineDiva
