Wine Forward

A Unique Calgary Wine Bar

We ❤ Wine

Wine is something to be treasured, something to be savored, and most importantly something to enjoy when that looming apocalypse finally does hit. Wine is the kind of thing you would never take for granted and neither would we. At Shelter, we take pride in selecting only the best wines for the individual tastes of our guests.

Whether you’re the type of red wine drinker who prefers to sip on a rich, robust, earthy Rioja or swirl a light, fruit-forward Burgundy Pinot Noir, we’ve got you covered.

If you’re more of a white wine person and enjoy a crisp, lemony New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to tickle your palate or a soft, buttery California Chardonnay to finish a long day, this Calgary wine bar is the place for you. If you love wine, we have something in common, and Shelter’s wine experts will walk you through our extensive wine list and guide you to the perfect glass to scintillate your taste buds.

We know there is a lot more to wine than color and grape. Each grape is distinctive depending on where it was grown, the unique layers of soil it was grown in, and its specific climate will all create an entirely different flavour profile.

At Shelter, we pride ourselves in tediously seeking out the best of every varietal andevery region. Let’s be honest it is not the worst task in the world, but it is an important one. We spend countless hours tasting and analyzing the finest offerings – ranging from the best of the old world to the most obscure of the new. We leave no rocks unturned to bring you exactly what your taste buds crave. It is this level of passion and authenticity that sets Shelter apart as a wine bar in Calgary. We don’t believe in mediocrity, we believe in doing things differently.

Planning an intimate event? Perhaps a surprise birthday, or celebrating a company milestone? Shelter is the perfect venue for your next event. With an elegant yet stylish interior. A mix of velvety and industrial textures make for a unique and intimate atmosphere, we are the perfect place for any special event. Especially for those who fancy a bespoke imbibing experience whether it be wine, beer or a specially crafted cocktail, Shelter is your best option.

At the end of the day (or the world) would you want anything less than the absolute best bottle of wine? Neither would we, come to Shelter and indulge in the most deliciously satisfying wines, beers, and cocktails. Cozy on up and try our gourmet cheese and charcuterie plate with the ideal glass of Cabernet or Pinot Grigio. Choose any of our delectable appies and our Calgary wine bar professionals will take you on an oral tour of the finest wine regions to match any of our phenomenally crafted appetizers.

Can’t wait to stop by and experience what Shelter is all about for yourself? We don’t blame you, just drop us a line or make a reservation online, it would be our pleasure to save you from the chaos of the outside world with a couple of well-deserved glasses of simply amazing wine.
