Over 30 years ago, a man with a passion & knowledge for wine set out on a mission. Seeing a need for a more diverse & unique product selection, he began scouring the globe, visiting many remote cornes of the world in search of hidden treasures. He began working direct with the producer, handpicking the products directly from the hardworking hands that created them.
By building these strong relationship ties, he was able to bring an exclusive mix of unique, high quality product to the Nova Scotian market at a great value - no middlemen, no surprizes.
Today, we work continuously to build and maintain a diverse network of winemakers, brewmasters & distillers from around the globe. This enables us to continue to offer a tempting range of unique, high-quality, hand-picked wines, beer & spirits to our valued customers.
We are more than just a WINE STORE - we are UNIQUE.
We carry product that can only be found in a private wine store. Our product mix is expertly curated with a focus on quality over quantity, with many of our products coming from small batches or limited edition runs.
