About us – The Wine Boys

The Wine Boys started as a humorous nickname then became our identity as Niagara Wine Influencers.  The Wine Boys consist of a married couple; Denny Kertesz and John Iseppon, along with their Shih Tzu named Merlot.

The birth of The Wine Boys

It was basically created for social media forums to discuss our appreciation for wine and wine events.  ‘Humour and having fun’ is probably our biggest theme for our writing style. We are attempting to put some wine knowledge in a context of having fun. We want to bring our blogging to you in a relaxed and fun way where you’re having fun and you tend to remember and learn.

Our Background –

We were born and raised in the Niagara Peninsula. We are currently living in the middle of two popular wine regions: Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Niagara Escarpment & Twenty Valley.

Denny’s background in Management and Marketing in the Tourism Sector changed after September 11, 2001.   Denny has worked in various roles at many wineries in both wine regions. After several years in a supervisory role at one of Canada’s largest wine producers, Denny decided it was time to get out of the Corporate Wine World. Now a Hospitality, Marketing, and Retail Manager of a Niagara on the Lake Boutique Winery where the challenges of rebranding an existing winery and regaining its public exposure have been one of the most rewarding positions in recent years.

John has worked in various Managerial roles, all within Customer Service based businesses.  Recently after several years, John left his Hospitality Management role to enter indirectly into the Wine Industry.  Now he promotes a first-class Niagara Wine Tour Company where he can utilize his creative side as their Social Media Coordinator and Private and Engagement Tour Specialist and assist in New Business Development.
