Learning in Wine Country!

October 27, 2017

Last month Wine Sense Managers visited Niagara On The Lake for Management Training. The Niagara region is the heart of Ontario’s wine region and is a wonderful place to visit wineries and experience the wine lifestyle. The town of Niagara On The Lake is a beautiful place loaded with Canadian history and very close to Niagara Falls.

We started our trip with a store management training session from Kevin Graff of Graff Retail, North America’s leading retail training organization. The session was a starting point to continued training focusing on how to better run our stores.

 

Winexpert and Vineco- ourtwo wine kit brands are owned by Andrew Peller Limited– we visited their Ontario Wine Kit Production facility and warehouse. We were able to see the production process from Juice Storeage, to blending and production to the bag and in the box. It’s an impressive and industry leading plant. We then stopped a the distribution warehouse to see where our orders are picked, packed and shipped from.

 

To cap it off we visited three of the Andrew Peller Limited Wineries- Peller Estates, Trius and Wayne Gretzky Estate Winery and Distillery. We toured the Wineries on bike and outside of one scraped knee (don’t take photos while riding a bike) it went very well. Peller Estates features the 10 Below Ice Wine Tasting Room and the the Gretzky Winery and Distillery is a must visit for any wine, whiskey or hockey fan!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was an educational and fun trip to wine country- We look forward to sharing what we learned with all of our customers!
