Wine purveyor Everything Wine is continuing to strengthen its foothold in the up and coming River District neighbourhood, which is teeming with new developments.
Customers who visit the storefront will discover an enormous, open space with high ceilings, thoughtful decor, and easy to navigate sections.
Their vast selection of over 4,000 local and international wines continues to set them apart from other local liquor stores. This, and the appeal of their wide range of craft beer and specialty spirits from near and far — many of which are exclusive to this specific location. Distinct from their other locations, this is the only store to carry beer and spirits.
With British Columbians spending more time at home than ever, Everything Wine’s unique offerings have become increasingly relevant for locals in search of new drinks for their next home barbecue or backyard picnic (as well as their standard favourites). Here’s a look at what might end up in your basket on your next visit.
Beer and spirits
Rather than making the trip to various craft breweries on the BC Ale Trail, locals can pop by for a wide selection of hard-to-find beers, like the sought-after lineup from Foamers’ Folly Brewing, Container Brewing, Slow Hand Beer Company, Twin Sails Brewery.
Their fully stocked “ready to drink” cooler section makes for an easy pit stop en route to the beach. Here, customers will find much-loved seltzers like Nude, Nutrl, White Claw, Georgian Bay, Black Fly, and just about everything in between.
In recent years, the team has taken great care to expand its selection of Asian Spirits — so much so that there is an entire section dedicated to house favourites like Soju, Awamori, and Arak, to name just a few. Plus, there are more than 60 brands of Sake available.
The thoughtfully curated spirits selection features regular and premium spirits, including selections from celebrity spirit houses like Ryan Reynolds, Conor McGregor, Bob Dylan, and more.
As the moniker suggests, the company’s true pride and joy is wine, which is why they’ve gone to great lengths to ensure there’s wine available for every palate, budget, and regional preference.
From lists of popular picks to sale items and vintage wines, a thoughtful approach has been undertaken to help customers navigate the vast assortment.
For those still trying to figure out where they stand on the spectrum of wine, a helpful quiz can be found on the Everything Wine website to help determine which wines you might enjoy best.
BC wine enthusiasts will find an array of local medleys from wineries like Okanagan Crush Pad Winery, Cassini Cellars, Arrowleaf, Blasted Church Vineyards, and Quails Gate Estate Winery.
Other available wines hail from over 5o countries around the globe, including the USA, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, South Africa, Chile, and Portugal, to name just a few.
A curated selection of bottles under $20 is a budget-friendly way to snag an exceptional bottle without breaking the bank, while initiatives like the Wine of the Week and Staff Picks are also there to help customers helm their choices.
Those in the mood to treat themselves will almost certainly find what they’re looking for in the Vintages Room — be it exquisite, rare, or highly accoladed — and all at reasonable prices. The plush room provides a fun opportunity to explore your palate alongside expert consultants who are passionate about the wines they introduce.
Not sure what kind of wine to get? Find the right wine for an upcoming event by shopping online based on occasion for food pairings — you’ll see hand-picked collections to suit everything from dinner parties to anniversaries and relaxing nights in.
If the prospect of navigating the aisles seems daunting, customers are encouraged to consult their crew of highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic on-site experts. You can buy wines online and pick-up at the store or drop by the South Vancouver location to peruse the aisles and discover something new.
