About us


Our Philosophy

Like a great work of art, we believe wine is about creating an experience. We've assembled an amazing selection of wine and spirits from around the world with a focus on unique, artisan products that deliver exceptional value.

The Vine Arts staff are some of the most knowledgeable in the city and we love to deliver stellar service and education in an unpretentious environment. We're here to provide advice and recommendations on all aspects of wine and spirits. We specialize in making things simple and approachable for those just venturing in to the world of wine, and we're also game to get geeky with the most experienced of wine lovers as well.

Wine

Our wine selection is diverse in style and price point. Safe to say, we have something for everybody. 

Spirits

We focus on curating small production, artisan spirits of the highest quality from all over the globe. 

Beer

The newest addition to Vine Arts repertoire. We are beer obsessed. Check out our rotating growler taps!

Staff


Jesse Willis

In his relatively short time in the business Jesse has established himself as one of Calgary's top wine professionals. After graduating from the International Sommelier Guild's diploma program in 2008, Jesse went on to become an ISG instructor, teaching wine education courses at SAIT. Jesse has worked at many of Calgary's top wine boutiques and has consulted for some of Calgary's top restaurants. In addition to being the co-owner and general manager of Vine Arts Wine and Spirits, Jesse serves as the wine director at Taste restaurant.

Jeff Jamieson

Jeff's love of wine and food was born out of his ten years in the restaurant industry where he worked every job imaginable, from Dishwasher to General Manager. As co-owner of Vine Arts Wine and Spirits Jeff's vision for the store is all about passion. He believes that people who come in through the front door should recognize our passion for our product and as a result find some of that same passion in themselves. When he is not at the store he is likely riding his bike, reading, or in the company of good friends.

Erik Mercier

After falling in love with wine while in Spain, Erik quickly changed careers, diving head first into his vinous studies. He is currently Assistant Manager at the shop and run's the Wine Club as well as many of our in house tastings (including our wine and music series). Beyond the shop he coordinates the wine list for Cafe Koi and writes as often as possible. Expect him to suggest Riesling or Gruner Veltliner as a pairing for virtually everything. 

Aaron Prasad

As the shop's jack-of-all-trades you can expect to learn as much about ballet or hunting from Aaron as you can about bourbon or wine. Although he has always enjoyed the finer things in life (beverages included) his jump into this industry came recently. He is a veteran of the fashion industry and is now implementing his above and beyond customer service in our shop.

Wine Club

Wine Club


Wine can be a daunting subject. There are thousands of different regions, hundreds of different grape varieties and even once you've mastered those, the wines change from year to year based on things like weather. We're here to help you.

Our Wine Club is designed to get six amazing bottles directly to you every month. For $150.00 we'll bring our selections to your house or office during the first week of every month. You'll receive both a written blurb about each wine and a link to a video with quick tasting notes and pairings. 

If that wasn't enough to convince you to join we're sweetening the deal even more. If you convince a friend to sign up for three months you'll receive a bonus bottle. Additionally, we'll be replacing one lucky members bottle every month with something uber collectable - think of it like a boozy lottery. Finally, we'll be offering an enhanced case discount of 15%. As the club grows even more opportunities will arise including special members only tastings.
