Welcome to The Wine Emporium from your hosts - Frank and Marlene Valente. Frank spent 13 years with the Liquor Control Board of British Columbia before creating a VQA wine store in Murrayville, just outside Langley, BC. The idea behind the store is to give wine lovers an unparalleled selection of local wines and a chance to enjoy these wines at a price equal to liquor board stores. Many of these wines cannot be found in liquor stores since some wineries cannot supply enough quantities to deal with the large stores. Frank has done the legwork for you, bringing in wines that before you could only get on a trip through B.C.'s wine country.
As an added bonus, Marlene has selected cards, candles and accessories to accompany the fine wines so a trip to The Wine Emporium is the only stop you'll need to make on your way to your next social occassion... and you can leave knowing you have supported local winemakers. What they have created is a satisfying combination of convenience and community responsibility. Frank and Marlene look forward to serving you soon!
