Brad and Nancy Wheeler have come out of the freezer to become full time “winos”.

They ran the two M&M Meat Shop locations in the Greater Moncton area, until December 2011.  They are now enjoying running the business that George and Penny lovingly started and grew!  Nancy & Brad are enjoying being empty-nesters with both kids grown up and working.  They love to spend time in their classic convertible with a picnic bag full of wine, of course!

Denis Laplante is a retired Air Force aero-engine mechanic with a longstanding interest in both wine and beer making.  He is the noise that happens in our “Nursery”!  If you have ever come in the store and heard a drill going and thought we were under construction…he is actually beating the CO2 out of the wine with a big whisk on a big drill. Denis is our “go-to” guy for all our wine and beer knowledge because he has been making his own for years and knows all the answers!.

Denis’s Favourite Wines : Any of our big, bold red wines.

Amanda re-joined our team in September 2020 after a 6 year hiatus and we are thrilled to have her back!  She has taken over from Diane running the bottling station and making wine, but she can do it all with sales and customer service experience.

Her family love to get out and walk for miles with their dogs on the weekends.  She is a keen crafter, but two busy teenage girls keep life exciting and busy!

Amanda’s favourite wines – Valroza (Valpolicella ) and 2021 Limited Sangiovese Rosé
