Hello Brandon!

NeilCHEERS, A votre Sante, Salut, Skaal, Kippis, L’chaim,
Slainte – Here’s tae Ye! or how ever you may say Cheers!
My name is Neil Roy and I am the newest addition to the Wine Sense family.

I’m the new Manager at the Wine Sense location in Brandon. I have been with Wine Sense for about 2 months now and to be honest with you, I haven’t enjoyed myself this much at work in a very long time.

I’ll be taking over from Ben and Ken- if you’re a Brandon Wine Sense customer you know how good a job they’ve done over the years.


Ben and Ken practice for retirement while on the job!

Most of you know Chuck by now- he is staying on with me as we prepare to fill the very large pair of wooden shoes that Ben is leaving behind. But don’t worry, Ben is going to be keeping an eye on us and will be working on Tuesdays. I expect Tuesdays will be very busy days! 

Neil & Chuck
Neil and Chuck- at your service!

I live in Brandon with my wife of 25 wonderful years, Janene and our 3 sons. My wife and I have enjoyed the wine making lifestyle for some 8 years now and really enjoy the whole adventure.

I’ve been training in Brandon with Ben & Ken and at the Wine Sense locations in Winnipeg.  One thing I realized quickly is that when you learn from the Wine Sense staff you learn from the best!

My promise to you all is that customer service is our number one goal and if I can’t answer any of your questions I have an amazing group of collegues that will or will direct me on where to find it.

I look forward to all the new relationships with my fellow winemakers and together we can enjoy and share all the wonderful aspects of winemaking. One very important thing I’ve learned so far at Wine Sense… we don’t just sell wine kits, we sell a “Wine Lifestyle”

Cheers and enjoy!

Neil Roy
