  • Fearlessly Effect Change

    We look to improve everything. Always.

  • Fearlessly Effect Change

    We continue to challenge every paradigm and obstacle.

    Blue Note is a rich fertile environment that embraces dreams to nurture their reality.

  • Nuture Dreams

    We know that realized dreams are what got us to where we are.
    It is only natural that we nurture others’ dreams to help them be realized.

Owner/Manager at Fable

Fable is a restaurant with a focus on foods supplied by our local farmers for meals prepared from scratch daily with expert technique.  Friendly enthusiastic service in a non-pretentious environment with house crafted cocktails and well selected wines. Blue Note has always provided us with excellent service (shown when we have had unplanned run-outs on our product!) and focussed options for our wine and cocktail list.  This is very much in thanks to our rep, Stephanie, who it is always a pleasure to see.

The world of wine, spirits and premium saké is about celebrating the pleasures of life and we at Blue Note embrace them at every possible opportunity. We celebrate our wins and rally to the challenges. Our annual retreats "Blue-Lapalooza" are becoming legendary - Team Blue Note's escape to celebrate great wine, food, music and laughter.

BACKSTAGE PASS TO CULTURE

Nuturing Dreams

At Blue Note we promote and actively participate in programs that allow us to pour out our spirit of generosity.

We work harder making this world a better place for ourselves, our clients, our producer partners and our greater community.

In addition to supporting important local causes we also look beyond our borders to help those who can use a boost through organizations like KIVA.org, a micro lending site. Through our contributions that we choose as a team, our aid supports a variety of people or groups that have a vision and need for funds to grow their activities that in turn contribute back to their community.

Patrick Ellis

President, k.i.d.

I see myself just as much as the ‘k.i.d.’ (key inspirational director) as I am the president of Blue Note.
In both roles, I work closely with my team of professionals to exceed our goals as we honour our core values.
In my spare time you can usually catch me at live music shows, exploring new foods and wines, swimming and making the world a better place by introducing people to our amazing portfolio of wines, spirits and premium saké.

Alan Nisbet

General Manager

I ventured west to Vancouver from SW Ontario in the early 90s in search of lifestyle and natural beauty, and I found it. The places, the people and the products have fuelled my passion for the wine and spirits industry for nearly two decades. Spending time with family, friends, furry creatures and entertaining at the homestead are some of my favourite past times. I am very excited to be part of such a dynamic, forward-thinking and socially conscious company.

I grew up in the Okanagan loving the sun and slopes equally. I have swum with dolphins and turtles in Hawaii, floated down the rivers and through mountain caves of Belize, sat quietly in the temples of Tikal, but seeing a cow run in a field truly makes me happy. I enjoy hiking, camping (both in a tent and at the Fairmont), travelling, tennis, pitch & putt and lazy days that organically unfold. I am industrious, loyal, cheerful and love to laugh.

Like the rest of the Blue Note Wine & Spirits team – I adore the stories that great flavours create and share.  Whether on the plate or in the glass, in a cozy kitchen at home or executing an event for hundreds, I truly enjoy introducing friends, guests, and clients to carefully crafted products that can turn a taste into a memory.  I am a big believer of giving the best service when sharing good wines, spirits and premium saké!

I perceived Blue Note’s ethics and joined in 2007. An extensive career as a terroir-toting sommelier includes time at Barefoot Bistro, the Wickanninish Inn, Spinnakers, Sips, Brentwood Bay Lodge, and a quarter century at Sooke Harbour House. I was awarded Sommelier of The Year for Canada in 2005 by Air Canada.

Northern Alberta Sales Manager

My true love is my muse, but I am zealous about food and cooking.  My other passion, baseball, has seen me sample hotdogs at fifteen MLB parks across North America. After years in the industry at other agencies, I joined Blue Note three years ago. I  am one of a handful of Certified Sake Specialists in Canada.

I have over 15 years in the wine and spirits business and love what I do. When I’m not promoting Blue Note products to great customers, I love hanging out with friends and family. Nothing beats a good bottle of wine and getting creative in the kitchen.

Having always adored great wine, travel and a passion for meeting new people, it was only hand in hand that I found myself becoming a part of the Blue Note team. I always look forward to what each work day may bring, who I may meet and what exciting new challenges may come. At the end of the week, spending time with my husband, toddler and our Bloodhound in BC’s beautiful backyard brings me true and utter happiness.

Sales & Marketing Admin

Originally from Victoria, BC, I loved cooking from an early age. My passion for wine developed while spending time in Australia in my early 20′s. My Nomadic lifestyle took me to Europe / London to work in the music industry, which later continued on in Canada. Looking to pursue a career in wines and spirits, I completed Level 3 WSET Certification and at Blue Note enjoy the best of both worlds!
