About Us

We partner with artisan, family-owned BC producers and share their stories and handmade products with Vancouver Island restaurants, liquor retailers and caterers.

Mark Wachtin

Founder – Storied Wines & Spirits

It’s all about the people—conversations, stories and histories. Vancouver Island raised (free range) with a lifetime in hospitality, Mark’s drawn to smaller, family-run operations, sustainable farming and handcrafted production methods.

Motivated by both the traditional and the new wave of producers, Mark has paired wine and food in world-class hotels, restaurants and eateries. Mark’s commitment is best expressed in his strong relationships with sommeliers, chefs, bartenders, servers and retail product consultants.

Mich Pambrun

North Island Sales & Marketing Representative

For some, passing on the passion for wine and food exceeds their enjoyment. Michel Pambrun, former DJ and hospitality pro from Manitoba, is one such soul.

Internationally accredited sommelier through the C.A.P.S. Diploma Program with ISG levels I and II, Michel celebrates natural, sustainable terroir-driven wines and their environments.

His many distinctions include participation in multiple Gold Medal Plates events curating pairings and bringing up two incredible daughters.
