New owner, Cosette Kempston has a passion for wine. She recently moved to Kelowna from Vancouver with her husband Mark and daughter Kiana. Living in wine country, she knew that she had to be in the wine industry and what she soon came to realize is that not only are there great wineries in the area, but there are also great wines to be made by the consumer themselves. So began the process of exploring Wine Central. With encouragement from her husband Mark as well as tasting some of the fabulous award winning wines made at Wine Central, she knew this was meant to be. Cosette is proud to be an authorized dealer of Winexpert products – one of the best in the market. The limited Editions and Eclipse series are her favourite. Whether you like white wines from the New Zealand Marlborough region, or red wines from California the variety is all yours for the making. There are plenty of wines to spark up your wine glass that is worth exploring!
