Enoteca Specialty Wines – Calgary Alberta

Enoteca is no longer there.  Moved out several years ago now. (2022)

I loved this place.  We went to  to pick up some Cuban cigars.  One of my boys was turning 18 and wanted to smoke a Cuban, so….

Next door was a wine store that I’d wanted to go into – had driven by several times and seen it but had never gotten around to checking it out.  We went in and were greeted by the proprietor, Gary Findlay.  He and another fellow were tasting wine – nice job if you can get it.  As it turned out they were tasting some wine brought in by James (Kent) a wine consultant who just happened to be there when we walked in – as they say it is all in the timing!

These gentleman were kind enough to let us taste some really spectacular wines.  We are constantly looking to try different wines and I prefer if not too pricey.  One particular wine was really superb – and it was pricey but fortunately the store was not carrying it yet so that made it easier…

James also had us taste some that were very reasonably priced and still excellent.  The shelves as well, held more than ample for my tastes and price range.  Gary carries many wines that I had not seen in other stores.  Both gentleman had great knowledge and enthusiasm for wine.

I also liked Enoteca’s very convenient location, just south of Glenmore on the east side of MacLeod.
