Milana has been working at Mission Creek Wine Cellars since April of 2001 and has become our most valuable employee. Milana has been living in Kelowna for the past 18 years with her husband Chris. Starting as a total rookie in winemaking and wine appreciation, she has blossomed to become one of the most knowledgeable people in the industry today. In a nutshell, Milana does everything at the store and does it well.

Her most favourite quotes that she uses almost daily is “if you don`t like it then I`ll take it” and “I have never met a wine I didn’t like”.

Milana’s favourite wines are “Anything Limited” which means she loves all of the Winexpert Limited Edition Wines – Reds and Whites both.
