The Winehouse is Manitoba's favorite wine store. Serving the community since opening it's doors as "Pembina Fine Wines" in 1999. After moving to a bigger location (1600 Kenaston Boulevard) in March 2009, and subsequently changing it's name, The Winehouse has grown to be one of Manitoba's largest wine suppliers while maintaining it's roots in friendly service.
