Gary Bombay, President & Owner

Gary Bombay, Owner of Blue Grouse Wine Cellars

Gary Bombay is the owner and president of Blue Grouse Wine Cellars. He has enjoyed building the company from a small, two person operation back in 2007 to become Vancouver’s leading wine storage solutions provider today.

A job well done and a satisfied customer are Gary’s primary focuses in doing business. In fact, many of Gary’s past clients, both from Blue Grouse and previous businesses have become his good friends. Give us a call and ask for Gary (he’s readily available to speak directly with customers) and you’re guaranteed to smile.

Gary is entrepreneurial at heart having owned and operated a successful promotional products company in Vancouver for 20 years. Having forged strong bonds with many of his clients in that business, he continues to serve some of them today.

In Gary’s free time he enjoys a great meal (often cooked himself) and fine wine to pair with it. Gary is very active and enjoys playing squash and skiing on the mountains in his very own backyard. More recently, Gary has taken up recreational boating with the acquisition of his new baby, the H2O Bomber. Gary enjoys taking her out and sharing the experience with friends and family.

 

Adrienne Gavard, Operations & Marketing Manager

Adrienne Gavard from Blue Grouse Wine Cellars

Adrienne oversees all operational and marketing activities at Blue Grouse Wine Cellars but also works directly with clients to help plan their wine cellar projects. Call up the office or drop into the showroom and there’s a good chance you’ll connect with her.

Adrienne really enjoys working for a small, tight knit business like Blue Grouse as it allows her the opportunity to dive deep into a variety of projects and see the fruits of her labour. She derives satisfaction from happy clients, beautifully built cellars and watching the company grow.

Adrienne was one of Blue Grouse’s first employees so has seen and been instrumental in its growth of product offerings, evolution of the website and transition into a new showroom and warehouse space.

Adrienne’s background is in creative communications having worked in marketing-related roles from York, England to New York City. She has also gained valuable managerial experience through her operation of gymnastics clubs and the customer relations department for a software development company.

Adrienne is passionate about wine and its proper storage. She has recently traveled to Florence, Italy to complete her WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) Level 3 certificate, passing with distinction. In her free time, Adrienne enjoys running, fine dining, traveling and hanging out with her furry “kids.”
