Looking for hearty French comfort food? Partake is the place for you. Customers rave about the moody and elegant interior and immaculately presented plates featuring plenty of rustic dishes such as Coq au Vin and savoury tarts.
Partake also changes their wines weekly, so you’ll always enjoy something new to try. For 2020, they’re doing an A-through-Z theme with their wine list, changing the line-up every two weeks with a new letter. Look for chardonnay and dolcetto coming up! If you find a favourite that you want to enjoy at home between visits to Partake, stop in-store - we’ll carry it.
Find them between Edmonton’s historic neighbourhoods of Oliver and Glenora, just off of the 124th Street Promenade.

If light and bright is more your style, Wilfred’s offers a vibrant and airy restaurant and bar that puts a modern spin of classic foods and drinks such as risotto and Alberta beef tenderloin. They’re a local family-owned business (just like us!) with a dedicated following of repeat customers that enjoy their beautiful atmosphere and menu.
Enjoy a bottle from their wine list which features low intervention and natural wine options such as Cirelli Montepulciano and Hiedler Rosé - both of which are available in-store.
Find them in Edmonton’s Brewery District. (And pssst - they have free, underground heated parking!)
