WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
(without the fussiness)
We love wine! In fact, we love it so much we want everyone to love it as much as we do! When you visit us at Small Wine Shop, expect to be greeted as a friend. We can’t have our friends drinking boring wine. No judgment or pretension here, just great wine.
WHAT WE DO
We only recommend wine we think YOU will enjoy. You don’t have to be an expert, that’s what Tim’s here for. He’s your guy! Our shop is stocked with interesting wine that we think you will love. Wine from small producers who take care of the land, love their grapes, and treat every vintage with care and love.
Many of the winemakers we represent practice natural, organic, biodynamic, or low intervention methods. What that means for you is that the wine in the bottle is a pure representation of the unique vision of the winemaker, the land where it is grown, and the tradition that nurtured it. These are exciting, interesting wines that are as comfortable hanging out with you in your flip flops as they are at a special occasion dinner meant to impress.
We think great wine is a craft honed by farmers and makers who love the land, the community, and the history of viticulture throughout the world. We look for diversity in our assortment. We have wines from winemakers who have been in the game for generations. We also have new winemakers, many of whom might have traditionally been shut out of the business. We believe anyone with talent, passion, and drive can make amazing wine, and those are the winemakers and wineries we strive to offer on our shelves.
No bottle of wine should be intimidating. The people who worked hard to put that bottle on our shelves are hard-working professionals who work with their hands and senses. Wine is for everyone! No matter who enters our shop, we want them to feel comfortable finding the wine that best suits their tastes and preferences.
We strive for equity and diversity in all we do. The space we create here at Small Wine Shop is designed for anyone to enjoy, and we want the wineries we represent to also reflect that our commitment to equity and diversity.
We strive to be as low impact as possible. We do that by focusing our wine assortment on producers who love and care for their vineyards. Many of our producers are certified or practicing organic, produce wine in the traditional method with little to no intervention.
