Thank you, Santa Clarita, for voting us the Best Wine Selection in the Readers’ Choice Awards!

Helen LaPrairie, a veteran in Real Estate as a Broker, has been in the Santa Clarita Valley at the top of her field since 1987.  Her massive client base, garnered as a result of dedication to her clientele and to the business and customer service side of Real Estate, combined with her extensive background in and love of wines, has helped to create the backdrop for Valencia Wine Company.  As the first wine bar and wine shop ever to open in the SCV, the VWC has remained the hot spot when it comes to wine and live music.  The location and ambience that she has created provide a unique, superior venue that really doesn’t exist anywhere else in the area, offering great wines, champagnes, port, beer, and other “mocktails” to sip, and a wonderful tapas-style menu.  Equally, Helen  who also has an entertainment and music background, has created a one-of-a-kind live music experience, where you can hear amazing bands perform a few times a week.  This live music program has been in existence since day 1, and her commitment to the live music scene and using local musicians is unparalleled.

Today, Valencia Wine Company is an anchor in the community, dedicated to making great wine accessible to everyone, no matter what your taste or budget. There is an ever-changing selection of inventory and a knowledgeable staff to help you discover something new each time you visit.  Located on beautiful Town Center Drive in the heart of Valencia’s urban entertainment complex, the Valencia Wine Company offers a warm and welcoming spot for all wine lovers with a dynamic atmosphere and knowledgeable staff.  Since 2002, Valencia Wine Company has been an integral part of the Valencia community and the Santa Clarita Valley.

While there is a great selection of bottles to purchase, Helen has been making extraordinary changes in 2017, directing a lot of focus to building a solid and unique wines-by-the-glass menu, a concise  and creative appetizer menu, bar-style “mocktails” while keeping great bottles on hand to take home or pop at the table.   Always looking to remain current,  Helen and her staff constantly look at new wines and food items to ensure that the clientele get what they ask for.  You won’t be able to find most of these wines in your neighborhood grocery store.  This is where her 30 years in real estate and extensive customer service come into play — She believes in listening to her customers and giving them what they want.  As the times change, Helen believes in changing with it.  That is why today, Valencia Wine Company continues to be the favorite local gathering spot.
