Meet the new owner!

Hello, All!

This December we see a few changes happening at Wine Kitz Nelson.

As many of you already know, your much adored John Kortram has decided to retire. He and his wife Ineke are off to ski, hike, fish, and keep themselves very busy with their many projects. A heartfelt Thank You to all who have thought to stop by or write to wish them well, it was so appreciated. They will be staying in the area, so please don’t hesitate to say hello and stop to chat when you pass them on the street. They will be missing all of their wonderful customers!

A quick few words about myself, as the new owner of Wine Kitz Nelson.

As a long time resident of the area, I have felt very fortunate to be able to live, work and raise a child in such an incredible place. Having always wanted to own my own business in Nelson, imagine my delight to find Wine Kitz available to buy…Nothing short of a dream come true for this girl!

John and Ineke have been working hard to get me trained up to the standards they have brought to the business. Rest assured the level of customer service you have seen from them will continue and the quality of our products will remain as high as ever.

I have already started some wines for myself, in preparation for having a full and varied wine cellar to enjoy and share with my friends and family!  (This, admittedly, was one of the many factors that determined this was indeed the right business for me…)

I very much look forward to meeting all of you as you come in to bottle the wine John started for you, or choose out your next favourite Wine!
