For over a decade, Calgary’s Vine Arts Wine and Spirits has curated beer, wine, spirits and speciality cocktail ingredients from around the world, recognized as one of Canada’s top boutique liquor stores and beloved among Alberta’s culinary scene. In September 2023, Edmonton wine and cocktail enthusiasts rejoiced as Vine Arts YEG opens at 10961 124 Street in Westmount – just west of downtown.

At Vine Arts, visitors will find a tasty array of fine wines, exclusive offerings, crowd favourites and bottles for both special occasions and everyday enjoyment. In the mood for cocktails? The extensive selection of spirits, bitters, liqueurs and syrups from around the globe and made locally will tempt amateur and professional mixologists alike.

The Vine Arts team has been planning for several years to open a shop in Edmonton, where many of their favourite restaurants and longtime clients are located. The 2,000 square foot space in the newly constructed 124 Westmount building designed by Jen X Jen features a stunning arch above the point of sale, 10 ft. tasting bar and hand-painted mural created by Edmonton-born, Vancouver-based Lee Nielsen.

With over 1,000 products in stock, grand opening festivities featured wine tastings by 17 importers, local breweries and distilleries including Juice ImportsSea Change Brewing Co. and Field Notes. BONAFIDE supported the Edmonton grand opening with media drops to 80 high-profile Edmontonians, an 80 guest preview night and facilitated partnerships with Amedei Chocolates and Italian Centre Shop.
