40th Anniversary

Posted by Tom, June 5th, 2023 | 0 Comments

Forty for Forty

The Vineyard is celebrating its 40th Anniversary.  In 1983 Cal and Collen Cran opened the doors in the exact spot we are in today.  About that time there was a huge beer strike in Calgary. Truly a ‘mom and pop’ operation, Cal even built a play area in one of back offices to keep the kids occupied while Mom and Dad were busy. We are not only the oldest but still the leading retailer of beer and winemaking supplies in Calgary. For forty years we have been proud to be “Turning beginners into Experts”.  When Cal and Colleen retired in the early 2000’s Tom bought The Vineyard and Neil joined as a full partner in 2011

To celebrate 40 great years we are offering unprecedented 40% discounts on two very special wine kits:

  • Signature Series Australian Shiraz with grape skins regularly priced at $199.99 on sale for $119.99 that is $80 (40%) in savings. WOW!
  • SOLD OUT Signature Series Australian Sauvignon Blanc regularly price at $194.99 on sale for $116.99 that is $78 (40%) in savings.

As another special ‘add on’ we are including an extra 100gm bag of Bourbon Barrel oak cubes. These cubes will enhance the ‘vanilla’ richness to the Shiraz. They could even be added to Sauvignon Blanc producing a unique mellow taste similar to a chardonnay that has been aged in oak barrels. This offering is unique, limited, and available only at The Vineyard.
