Meet The Wine Kitz Team


At Wine Kitz Ottawa we believe in Walt Disney’s philosophy:  

“Do what you do so well they’ll want to see it again

and bring their friends.”

Dean DicksDean (Wine Associate)

Two things I learned during 25 years as an executive chef and hotel food & beverage professional was to ensure my product was of high quality and to deliver it with outstanding customer service. From day one at Wine Kitz Ottawa I’ve felt right at home because the entire Wine Kitz Team gets this. The wine is great and the service is personal and thorough. I still find the fermentation process magical, and the customers I meet every day even more so.

Kent (Wine Associate)

After many years in media and visual technology I was looking for something new. My travels to visit distilleries and breweries developed into an interest in wine and wine making. My team members and our Wine Kitz Ottawa customers have provided me a perfect opportunity to do this, and I learn something new every day.

After being hired at Wine Kitz Ottawa, I was delighted to jump into the world of wine making and wine tasting! Although I had experience in the world of whiskeys, I was fairly new to wine. That has certainly changed! It’s easy and exciting to learn from such knowledgeable co-workers and educated customers. Working at Wine Kitz is a pleasure, thanks to great products and even better people.

When I joined the custom wine vinting industry in 2005 I turned my passion for exploring and enjoying good wines into a highly successful business. My enthusiasm for learning, combined with my love of good wines, good people, and good conversation made this career choice a perfect fit.


(Sales & Operations Manager)

Over the past decade, I have watched Wine Kitz Ottawa grow into the success it is today. Throughout this time, the best part of my job has been working with our customers: helping them choose their wines and crafting those wines to their liking. I always strive to offer exceptional customer service, and I take great pride in ensuring each customer wine is individually processed with care to create the best possible product.


Sydney (Lead Wine Associate)

I first developed an interest in the wine making process while travelling and visiting wineries around the country. A family member introduced me to Wine Kitz Ottawa and all the amazing wines they had to offer. With my years of customer service and passion for wine I was thrilled to join the Wine Kitz Ottawa team, and look forward to offering all of our customers an exemplary experience in making their own custom wines.

Wine Kitz has been satisfying customers
for over 60 years.

We’d like you to be one of them.
