Leah Anderson

Leah, you’re the manager of EXPÉRIENCE for ANBL. Tell us what that means.

As a professional wine lover working in the wine industry for the past 14 years, I’ve been extremely fortunate to have experiences that one immediately recognizes as being once in a lifetime. In my mission to source unique wines for the Expérience program, I’ve had opportunities like attending Pinot Camp in the Willamette Valley in Oregon, touring the vineyards of Chablis and Beaune and even stopping by the spiritual-Romanee conti. Managing the EXPÉRIENCE program at ANBL and soon opening the new EXPÉRIENCE by/par ANBL boutique in downtown Moncton is, for me, right up there as a once in a lifetime opportunity

Tell us a little about the store.

The store will be a brand new EXPÉRIENCE for New Brunswickers! It is the first specialty store for wine, spirits, beer and cider. It’s a hub for our EXPÉRIENCE program, which boasts special, limited buy products in 18 stores around the province. EXPÉRIENCE by/par ANBL will offer over 1000 different products for everyone from beginner to connoisseur. You’ll find something for all of life’s occasions.Like it or not, winter is here…what are some of your favourite winter drinks?

Here’s the big question: What makes this store stand apart from any other ANBL location?

Customers can expect a totally unique shopping experience from our endless pursuit of amazing products to fill our shelves, our Coravin system that allows you try some wines before you buy, to our expert level of product knowledge and customer service from our passionate team. To top it off, we can’t wait to host you for our product release events, education classes, in-store tastings and perfect pairings. Dare to enjoy favourite and new EXPÉRIENCES – we’ll be in downtown Moncton waiting to help! EXPÉRIENCE by/par ANBL will open Spring 2019.
