Default Shopping for wine near Canada Place, Vancouver

Has anyone bought wine prior to their cruise near Canada Place? If so, are there "provisions" stores within a reasonable distance to the docks? Celebrity says one bottle per passenger is allowed to be brought onboard and we don't want to fly from the East coast with it. Thanks, Sue

Good evening,
There is a provincial Liquor Store within 10 minutes walk from Canada Place. Quite a variety of products, at the ''distribution branch'' cost, less than a ''wine and beer '' shop, of which there is none very close to the pier.
Happy sailings
Cheers

Not sure about where to buy the wine but I did have one of the best at the Mosaic restuarant in the Hyatt on Burrard. It was Jackson Triggs Merlot. I'm not a wine specialist but it was very good.
