Rich Massey founded Massey Wines in 2012. Growing up in the 80’s on skis and bikes in Nelson, BC, followed by a decade of tree planting and surfing. In 1998, Rich and some friends opened Monsoon restaurant and Soma Cafe at Main & Broadway in Vancouver. Next came a tenure at the Galiano Inn which lasted over a decade and was where Rich developed his love for BC wines. During this time he earned a degree in hospitality management from Cornell University, the Sommelier Diploma from the International Sommelier Guild and the Certified Sommelier Credential from the Court of Master Sommeliers. Through the encouraging support of long-time friend Mark Wachtin from Vancouver Island’s Storied Wines & Spirits, Rich founded Massey Wines with an original vision to bring under-represented Vancouver Island wines to the Vancouver wine scene. Rich enjoys taking sales off the beaten track and loves logistics challenges and servicing remote rural areas while always maintaining his Vancouver & Whistler relationships.
