Thank you very much Alison and Grant. You are both awesome to work with.
What a fabulous wine store. Before I wandered around this store I had just assumed that it was your average, run of the mill, liquor stop. Well, it is not! It is really is something special; a place that has very knowledgeable staff and owners that carry a plethora of amazing wines from excellent vineyards. Yes, there are your everyday wines, your table wines and such. But there is also row upon row of special, exquisite vinos from all around the world. If you are looking for a store to buy a special bottle, to try something new or to give as a gift, I definitely suggest going to Aligra. There also is quite a large selection of champagne (which I adore!). Oh, and up at the till I found the coolest thing: wine wipes to get rid of wine stained lips! Hilarious and so awesome!
Thanks for an absolutely fantastic evening. I loved everything about it. The selection of vodkas, the other attendees & the pace of the program was fantastic! Kudos to you, Alison & Ken, for being the hosts & the "host venue" for such a great event.
Hi Alison, I just wanted to thank you for involving us WSET students in your even last night. It was a wonderful experience to hear Paul speak!! I have added my business email to your mailing list for your newsletter and look forward to future events. Thank you again!!!
I just wanted to send a note of thank you to your wonderful staff. In a day and age of "no costumer service", I was truly touched by the service I received at your store. The great advice on wine was a bonus! DELICIOUS. Thank you again.
Excellent wines! I started of course from the very light Riesling through the Chenin Blanc and onto ALL whites. Then proceeded to reds in the same manner (light and "up the ladder"). I must say, Alison. Over the years and many (less lately after retiring; more into travel! and wine drinking) wine tasting/sampling "adventures" - BRAVO! To you and all your personnel!!! Excellent choices of cheeses, meats, appetizers, snacks, etc. Even crackers: from nice and plain to more "choicy", pending the wine & app. Great use of 'cameo' space. WELL, VERY WELL DONE! I certainly look towards another event. I wish to thank you for the invite and show!
Attended the Irish Whiskey Tasting March 12. Love it! Well organized, lots of info and fun. Your staff did a good job.
We truly appreciate the kind words and everything that you and Aligra wine and spirits have done for us! Everyone absolutely loved the baskets! Again thank you so much to you and your team!
We cannot wait for this situation to come to an end so that we can continue to grow our relationship with you guys and have you out at some of our events
Thank you very much for the order and the well organized and cordial delivery – great service.
We have sampled the St Michelle Riesling (accompanying barbecued chicken) and the Destino Malbec (with barbecued boerewors (a South African traditional coarse sausage, mix of beef and pork, spiced with coriander and cloves) both are lovely drinking wines and super pairings.
Thank you very much for the selection.
We also tasted the Rig Hand Double Double coffee cream – delightful local product – please thank Jennifer for the recommendation.
Hoping you are all safe and well
"HI, one of my friends sent me a picture of their basket. Thank you so much, it's beautiful!
I've ordered over the phone/online before and it an go either way. I'm always a little nervous of what I'm sending.
I will definitely use you when I need another one or for corporate gifts. You did a wonderful job!
I am so pleased with my recent purchase at Aligra today. In a matter of 20 minutes, and with help from Alison, I had a beautiful basket ordered for a member of my family living in the city. I live on the very opposite side of the country and the transaction process was seamless. Not only that, but the quality and value of the basket was more than fair. Thank you so much!
You have exceeded my expectations.
Thank you for helping out a poorly organised Aussie.
My sister, Marie, was particularly taken with your use of hessian in the basket. We were farm kids and the smell brings back pleasant memories.
Nice job, folks.
Thank you Alison for creating an excellent event. I thought the whiskies and conversation that Jenn put together was fantastic. Look forward to the next event that you will have on.
Like the idea of a blind taste for a next event. And especially if it is for Canadian whiskies.
Bruce & I enjoyed the virtual scotch tasting. We have tried a few wine tastings that were paired with food and the experience was awesome.
We would be interested in future virtual tastings. We thought the idea of a blind tasting was a very interesting idea
What an enjoyable evening you organized for us last night. The overall presentation was excellent with a good bit of knowledge presented but also time to discuss opinions amongst all participants. The products selected for tasting were varied and provided a very interesting comparison of the whiskies. I also agree with the point made about keeping the number of samples to a minimum. The Zoom format worked very well, and I would definitely take part in any future whisky tastings that you may offer in this format. As you know, we have moved to Calgary so in person attendance won’t work for me, but please keep me updated on plans for any future whisky tastings to be held via Zoom. Thanks again for shipping out the whisky kit to me and for hosting this event.
I feel loved!!!
Received the most beautiful Bottle and flowers from my husband for Valentine's. I absolutely love them -- Aligra Wines and Spirits -- we will choose you again. 👍👍👍
