Since then she has brought her warm personality and extensive wine knowledge to several roles within our retail and operations teams. Like many of our staff, she never tires of the variety of people and products this industry exposes her to!

Alanna found her way into the wine industry through her love of art, culture, food, and romance languages. After travelling and studying in France, Spain and Italy; she knew she wanted to learn more about the world of wine. Around the same time her father decided to plant a 12 acre vineyard in the Annapolis Valley. Her experience working in the vineyard gives her a unique understanding and respect for the producers of the wines we enjoy. She loves to tell their stories in her work with Bishop’s Cellar.

Alanna splits her time between the store and our warehouse offices using her product expertise to design educational programs and elevate customer experiences throughout the business.

Alanna McIntyre's Picks

This past summer I spent three incredible weeks in Italy with my family; many of our meals ended with some kind of herbal digestivo and Vecchio Amaro del Capo was the liquor of choice.  After a hearty meal, an icy cold shot of this Calabrian digestivo with its minty and liquorice aromas, flavours and balanced bitterness really hit the spot.  Serve it up like an Italian by storing your Amaro del Capo in the freezer and pouring it into pre-chilled shot glasses after a big meal.  A little goes a long way and I like to sip, savour and slowly enjoy.
