Established in 2014, Vine&hops’ philosophy is based on developing and sustaining strong relationships with local producers of the finest Craft Beer, Spirits, and Wine to create an unforgettable day out for locals and visitors to Vancouver. Our foundation is deeply rooted in hospitality, and you will see that from the moment you join us for a tasting event or a tour! Our guides provide warm, sincere service from the beginning to the end of the tasting experience. We don’t just provide you with a designated driver while you imbibe, we host you on a seamless day out where we are with you every step of the way!
ASHLEY WEST- Owner/Sommelier
Ashley loves wine. If she’s not knee-deep in grapes singing her heart out, then she’s happily pouring wine and educating others about it. Her sincere passion for wine has taken her from fine dining to crushing grapes with steel toed boots in the Okanagan. She approaches wine like she approaches life, “It’s just so much fun!”
Favourite Beer Anything weird. I love sours, barrel aged dark ales, and a good old super hoppy IPA.
Favourite Wine This is an unfair question! But pinot noir and chardonnay will always have my heart.
JAYDEN GRUNDY- Owner/ Craft Beer Gangster
Jayden is passionate about local craft beer. If he’s not travelling around the world on a charity-driven expedition, you can find him making friends, brewing beer or enjoying a fresh pint in one of the many craft breweries in Vancouver. Through numerous philanthropic events he’s organized, Jayden has discovered a talent for producing unforgettable events. He has been in the tourism industry for the past decade and he loves to show people a great time wherever he goes!
Favourite Beer I love most colours of the rainbow, but for this winter; Smoked porters, sours and IPA’s are hitting the spot!
Favourite Wines Whites all day long… especially a well balanced Chardonnay.
