About Us

Our Team


The Crew

We’re a bunch of wine, spirits and beer nerds! We’ve travelled the world tasting all kinds of alcohol and have taken a few hundred glasses…we mean, classes…so we could stock the right bottles for you in-store. Plenty of hours have gone into “product testing” – hey, only the best for you! We’re committed to giving top notch service and top shelf liquor at every price point. While we all have our own little quirks, we have two things in common: we know our stuff and absolutely love what we do…plus we’re really good looking (editor’s note: they paid us to say this).

Boss Man

Michael MacDougall

When he’s not drinking port paired with blue cheese, you’ll find Mike doing boss man type things for the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival, Winefest, Virtual Vino, and Rocky Mountain Wine, Spirits & Beer. He also spends his nights playing hockey and fighting crime. We’re not saying he’s Batman, but we’re saying no one has ever seen the Joker in Calgary.
Manager - WSET 3

Sarra Brown

Sarra is a world-wine traveller who visits a new country every year to explore the local drink scene for “professional development”. Combined with her completed WSET 3 education and years in the industry, you’d definitely want Sarra on your wine-trivia team.
Beer Manager

Sean Cooper

Sean “Scoop” Cooper has tried over 3000 different brews, earning him the title of resident beer guy. He makes sure our beer fridge is always stocked with the latest and greatest in craft beers and domestics, and can make all your beer dreams come true. He’s basically beer Santa.
Sales Ninja - WSET 2

Kelsey Major

Where there’s a wine, there’s a way, especially if it’s a red blend – Kelsey’s favourite. Kelsey enjoys travelling, playing golf, and drinking wine. Needless to say, she fits right in!

Kim Davies

Kim will never get Bordeaux of wine. This avid golfer will drink anything that's red, and if he was stranded on a desert island, Pinot Noir would be his must-have item.
Sales Ninja

Andrew Henschel

Beers for the game, a nice red for date night, or maybe a wee dram before bed? Andrew can help! When he's not at the store, you can find him playing hockey, on the golf course, or at the ski hill. Come ask him about Bourbon!
Sales Ninja

Sam Beavers

You'd almost think this guy was from New England the way he talks about NEIPA's. Sam's a world traveller who, through working in small town English pubs, developed keen taste and passion for craft beer. He's eager to share what he's learned along the way.

Chantelle Carkner

Chantelle has a passion for all that is wine... red, white and bubbles too! She has a soft spot for French wines. After visiting Champagne twice she looks forward to an upcoming tour of the Veneto region this spring. Chantelle’s 2020 goal is to receive her French Wine Scholar certification. When not working or studying wine Chantelle can be found, well, drinking wine!
