More than a wine shop, WineStyles® Tasting Station® offers guests a one-of-a-kind retail experience with the opportunity to Taste, Learn, and Enjoy® the best in wine, craft beer, fine chocolates, artisanal cheeses, and gourmet items. In addition, customers can gather with friends and family and enjoy a full menu of small plates featuring a variety of pizzettes, cheese plates and charcuterie boards, paired with draft beer and wine on tap or by the glass. Franchisees benefit from multiple distinct revenue streams, including monthly wine and beer club memberships, a customer loyalty program, plus an assortment of wine accessories and custom gift baskets. Furthermore, WineStyles Tasting Station locations host weekly tastings and in-store events, as well as private parties and fundraising events.
WineStyles Tasting Station was born out of the original WineStyles concept, which was founded in 2002 after a backyard barbeque blind tasting proved the most popular wines were not the most expensive, but simply the ones that tasted the best. As a result, WineStyles created a completely new category in the wine retail industry by empowering customers to choose wines based on taste, instead of varietal or region.
As the nation’s largest wine and craft beer specialty chain of its kind, WineStyles Tasting Station is committed to delivering unmatched quality and customer service while continuing to build a community gathering place where food, drinks and friendship are celebrated in a clubhouse atmosphere.
