Join Craft Cellars on March 11, 2024 at 6:30 for an IN-STORE Wine Tasting Event with Masi Winery hosted by James Bornn

James Bornn | Masi Canadian Brand Ambassador

James Bornn is a Canadian Brand Ambassador for Masi Agricola and has 17 years of experience as an educator, sommelier and lover of Masi wines. In fact, the first bottle of wine he ever purchased was a bottle of 1997 Masi Campofiorin, which he shared with his then-future wife. James is an Italian Wine Scholar and has been educated by the Wine & Spirits Education Trust and the Society of Wine Educators. He has traveled extensively through Italy’s wine regions, and completed Masi’s Venetian Viticulture and Oenology program in Verona in 2016.

The Winery

With roots in Valpolicella Classica, Masi produces and distributes Amarone and other premium wines inspired by the values of the Venetian territories.

The use of native grapes and autochthonous methods, and the research and experimentation carried out by its Technical Group, make it one of the most famous producers of high-quality Italian wines in the world.

The Masi story begins in 1772, when the Boscaini family carried out their first harvest in the prestigious vineyards in “Vajo dei Masi”, a valley in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica region. After more than 200 years of passionate winemaking the company is still in family hands, run by the sixth, seventh and eighth generations.

A benchmark in the art of producing Amarone at a world level, Masi constantly innovates and passes on its expertise in the Appassimento method, which has been practised since the time of the Ancient Romans.
