Fell in love with this jewel! Scott, the owner, has an amazing palatte for wine and delights in finding delicious wines for reasonable prices. Be sure to go for one of the tastings - every month features a different varietal paired with lite appetizers.

Nothing but good things to say about Fine Wines and Tastings. I think the community was pretty saddened when the old Katy Rose olive oil store closed, but this is about the best thing that could replace it. They have a great rotating menu of...More

These guys choose their wines very carefully and offer great value. Unlike the big box store they don't double their cost then give the impression you're getting a 'great deal' with a 15 or 20% discount. Their prices are really fair and no they don't...More

Thank you, for the kind review! We currently offer wine tasting events the second Wednesday of every month, where we have at least 20 different wines being poured. Shipping is certainly on our list of future goals!

The wine tasting was over priced for what was served. Shop owner seemed more interested in being "buddy, buddy" with one of the wine reps instead of building a relationship with the customer.More
