Our story: Cal and Nola have been lovers of wine and each other since they were married years ago. Having raised two fantastic boys to adulthood, what was next on life's journey? The answer appeared in a tiny classified ad one day-a wine shop of course! A different kind of a wine shop. Not the impersonal big box store, but a unique and intimate type of place that when guests entered, they would get personal and thoughtful service, whether they needed the perfect wine for a weekend dinner or just the right spirit to go with dessert.
So continued the love story of wine and each other! Cal, the business guy, loves to help each person find their perfect wine, craft beer or spirit. Not one on pretense, he is there to help each guest based on their needs and tastes, not on wine reviews! He tastes every wine before he purchases, so that only special and unique wines enter this shop!Read more: Meet your hosts, Cal and Nola
