About Marla Truman
WineMaster Since 2003
Thanks for taking the time to get to know us at WineMaster. Marla Truman is the sole owner of WineMaster and works at the store full-time with some part-time staff. She has been the owner of WineMaster since 2003, but worked at the store in varying capacities for 5 years prior to that.
Marla got into the winemaking business after taking the Cellar Management Winemaking course at Okanagan College in Penticton. Although she loves to play outside, she does not like to work out in the elements, so this winemaking business seemed like a great way to go. Marla started part-time, ending up owning the store. Ownership can be a challenge at times, but a good one. To Marla, the customers are the best part. She has made some good friends over the years and loves chatting with and getting to know her customers.
Marla was born and raised in the Okanagan, and intends on staying until she can retire someplace warm (which isn’t coming too soon)!
If you are looking to move to the Okanagan, Marla can pass along some good information or connect you with people who can help. Just ask!
