Willow Park Wines & Spirits was purchased March 4th, 1994 during the privatization of Alberta’s liquor industry. With retail, wholesale, event and educational departments, Willow Park Wines & Spirits places customer service at the forefront of the business. In January 2023, Willow Park Wines & Spirits was acquired by Calgary Co-op.
Positioning ourselves as Trusted Experts, Willow Park Wines & Spirits was quickly acknowledged as Canada’s authority on all things wine, beer, and spirits related. After purchasing historic bottles from Napa Valley, establishing Canada’s first Bordeaux and Scotch Futures program, and collecting rare and personalized bottles from producers around the world, our company gained international recognition for our contributions to the liquor industry.
Taste, Learn, Enjoy!
Beyond our incomparable product selection, we provide our customers with opportunities to Taste, Learn, and Enjoy with us. We offer international travel opportunities through WP Tours with our Trusted Expert team, industry led Master Classes, walkabout festivals, and pairing classes for every level of consumer.
In 2001, we founded The Vintage Fund in order to directly support local charities and organizations. To date, we have raised over $5 million thanks to events, generous donations from our partners, and our successful Willow Park Wines & Spirits Charity Wine Auction. Through the formation of our fund, our continued involvement as sponsors for local events, and frequent in-kind donations, our dedication to the community sets us apart from other retailers.
Willow Park Wines & Spirits has grown into an entrepreneurial success story, and we contribute much of our success to the genuine relationships we have built with our customers, employees, suppliers, and community.
