In the beginning … Kathy and previous co-owner Paula were bottling some of Paula's wine at the original White Rock store when they heard Gord, founder of Crescent Wines, talking about the possibilities of franchising. It sounded like fun and they decided to turn their hobby into a business and started the process of opening their own franchise. Crescent Wines Langley was in business from spring 2004 until early 2022 when it moved and merged with the White Rock location. Paula retired at the end of 2016 and Kathy continued to operate the store along with her husband John. Gord has also since retired.
In the fall of 2018, Kathy and John also acquired the original Crescent Wines in White Rock and Kathy now operates and manages that location. Kathy attributes their success to the unique methods and procedures Gord instilled over the years.
