About Us

Our History

“There is nothing like wine for conjuring up feelings of contentment and goodwill. It is less of a drink than an experience, an evocation, a spirit. It produces sensations that defy description.” 

– Thomas Conklin, Wine: A Primer

 

DRINK is not your usual wine shop, but more of a small wine society of friends. 


Born out of a passion for wine and the desire to share quality, small production wines with a focus on family and interesting stories, DRINK invites you to the intimacy and comfort of The Living Room to learn about and experience  new innovative wines that the "dreamers" from each corner of the world. 

 

There are many special moments in life, big and small, and celebrating with wine will only enhance them. 

 

Intimate, Not Intimidating.

 “The discovery of a good wine is increasingly better for mankind than the discovery of a new star.” 

– Leonardo Da Vinci


DRINK's main focus is on the family-owned and small production wineries. Due to the nature of such limited productions, there will be an ever changing stock of wines to experience. 


However, there are a few wines that we love so much that we just had to include them in our portfolio. Stop in to find out which "black sheep" snuck into our family business. 


DRINK also offers a few selected wines by the glass. Feel free to come by with a book, your laptop, or a friend and spend a pleasant hour or two in The Living Room. We are also available to host your small private gatherings or specialized tastings.


A small, curated collection of highly coveted wines can be found in The Library.


Well Researched Tastings

"When it comes to wine, I tell people to throw away the vintage charts and invest in a corkscrew. The best way to learn about wine is the drinking." 

– Alexis Lichine


You learn about wines by trying different varietals and vacillating quality, and it quickly becomes apparent that it is a BIG world, of which most people only get see a small glimpse.  Our wines are typically not the ones you might find on your grocery shelf. The team at DRINK strive to make interesting wines approachable as they share the stories that are within the bottle with you. 


DRINK holds their tastings on Thirsty Thursdays and an occasional weekend.

 

Check out the calender to see what is in the works. 


Please note that space is limited as Tastings are held in The Living Room, which enhances the interactive nature of our events.
