Happy New Year!

From the Manager’s Desk

Wow, as I write this, it’s only a few days before the New Year, and we turn our calendars over to 2017. As I reflect upon the past year, I realize it was difficult for many, and in some ways, challenging for us here also. But, there’s always that light at the end of the tunnel, and we can certainly see it shining brighter now! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loyalty and patronage not only during the month of December, but throughout all of last year also! We truly appreciate all our customers here at the store and we had fun serving you! January is typically slow in wine retail, but I’m sure we will still see many of you around. Store tastings will resume in February along with our bar pours by reps. If you are interested in a private tasting, feel free to give us a call at the store to discuss (minimum 8 people). Continue to check the website calendar under the Events tab for tastings and for future events! All the best to everyone in 2017 and may this year be a healthy and prosperous one! Salute!

A Word From the Owner

Thank you all for a successful Open House on December 1 and a successful month of December also! I hope that everyone got those special wines for all of their Holiday celebrations. Our regular hours will commence for January 2, 2017. We are pleased to be serving the residents of St. Albert and welcome the continued new occupants of the Botanica condos here behind the Shops @ Boudreau. We hope to see you often in 2017 and be able to meet your wine needs!  All the best in 2017!
