Matthew Kaner 
Fermented grape juice has allowed Matthew Kaner to find a voice within an industry full of characters and strong personalities. He quite enjoys how things smell and taste. In fact, as a kid Matthew wouldn’t eat anything until I smelled it first. Now a 16+ year veteran of the wine world, his humble wine career began at the Wine Cask Wine Store in his hometown of Santa Barbara.

Matthew was graciously named one of the Sommeliers of the Year by Food & Wine Magazine in 2013. In early 2015 with Lancaster and new partner David Gibbs, the trio opened Augustine Wine Bar in Sherman Oaks. Augustine has been named Best Wine Bar in American by Food & Wine Magazine and gets critical acclaim for its Vintage Collection of wines that it makes available by the glass and by the bottle on their in- house chalk boards nightly.

In August of 2019 Wine Enthusiast Magazine named Matthew to the 40 Under 40 Tastemakers list for 2019!

In June of 2020 it was announced that Matthew had signed on as an official Host & Producer for the SOMM TV Network. Season One of his podcast called History Of Wine debuted on July 20th, 2021 and the series SPARKLERS will debut on November 23rd, 2021 in which Matthew co-developed & produced, as well as co-starred.

Matthew is President of Will Travel For Wine, Inc and will travel anywhere and everywhere for wine. So far his travels have taken him up and down the coast of California, to Australia, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Austria, Germany, Morocco, South Africa, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Oregon, Virginia, and New York State on wine adventures.

Acid League, Proxies, Sauvage, Canada (Non-Alcoholic)
A new form of flavor rooted firmly in the treasures of our Canadian home soil. Sauvage meshes crisp apples with green spruce tips and spicy cedar, blazing a trail through an untouched evergreen forest in the early spring. Canadian terroir in a glass, Sauvage works as a substitute for white wine, farmhouse cider, and herbal aperitifs.

Acid League, Proxies, Nightshade, Canada (Non-Alcoholic) 
There’s something magical about Tuscany as day turns to night. The scent of savory herbs and roasted tomatoes wafting through the air, whetting the appetite for the feast ahead. Nightshade captures it all in a bottle, meshing the savory depth of nightshades like paprika and sundried tomatoes with olive leaf and earthy rooibos tea. A rustic, reliable red fit for sipping every day and night.
