Our award-winning selection of wines can be had by the glass or by the bottle, enjoyed in a stylish setting with good music on the stereo and a pet-friendly courtyard out back. Indulge yourself with a bite from our food menu or order in your own food.
When a geographer interested in wine met a sommelier interested in geography, a new bottle shop ensued. Come in to let us guide you through our celebrated collection or shop online for wines from the many regions we represent.
Above the bottle shop/wine bar is a light, airy room that showcases the work of local artists and offers a quiet retreat for reading and sipping. Browse what's on the walls this month or book the space for your next birthday party or event.
"Just spent a few hours in this cosy wine bar. Amazing selection of wines and wonderful to have such expert staff on hand to give recommendations. Totally loved the place and will definitely be back again. Can’t wait to try out the courtyard. If you love a glass of wine and like to try something different, this is the place to go to."
"Cardwell Cellars is fantastic. The owner had a selection of interesting pours available by the glass, was incredibly knowledgeable (including a history lesson about the vineyards in Morocco) and gave thoughtful recommendations. Great selection of bottles, with plenty of affordable choices too. Courtyard coming soon which will be great for summer. Will be back!"
"The staff are fantastic. They have a great selection of wines, they are super friendly and helpful. The ambiance is great. So pleased to have this in Abbotsford"
"Martin is a natural conversationalist with stories to tell and wines to share. Andrew is so hospitable you’d think you’re having a bbq in his backyard. The gents are about to take Abbotsford by storm and you’d best jump in early, put your seatbelt on and buckle up for a ride! Get there now!"
"Perfect in every way. Ambience, the wine selections, the sharing of wine knowledge, the cheese platter, the chairs-yes the chairs! Once discovered you will return many times as we plan to do"
