Scott is the owner and I am a loyal customer. Very lovely place and as a fellow business professional I appreciate the old school customer service. Prices and quality are super.

We visited this new wine store on opening day. They offer by the glass wine along with prepared foods. For a small space, they have a very wide variety of wine, mostly at low to moderate prices. They have done an admirable job of selecting wines that are indicative of the region, without going overboard with the high prices. Comparing their prices to competition, they are among the lowest I have seen in a retail store. We'll definitely be buying a lot of our wine from them.

Hey Bikehog, thank you for being among the first to visit us! Just to let you know we now have assorted meats and cheeses for a build your own charcuterie board, a much needed addition. I'm glad you find our prices competitive, be sure to stop by because we are constantly getting in new wines and deals!

We enjoy a periodic visit to Fine Wines and Tastings on Main. You’re never sure what they will be pouring but they strive successfully to be unique. They rotate their bottle stock frequently so it’s worth popping in when you’re in the area. The owner, his family, and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Very relaxing environment.

Thank you for the 5 star review!! Changing the menu monthly is a fun way for our customers to explore the over 400 different wines that we carry! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you again soon!!

Popped in on a Tuesday around 9. We actually had the signature cocktails instead of wine, and Craig made them perfectly!

Went to the wine walk Wednesday which involves this store/bar and numerous stores on main. Nice event. A great variety of wines to sample. Reasonable price and lots of appetizers were around for snacking. The store bar itself was our last stop. They certainly have a wide assortment of wines with labels you don’t see elsewhere. Prices ok. They had a show special discount so we ordered a mixed case of the ones we liked best. Will have to wait on some for full delivery as the stock of many wines was wiped out that night. Otherwise great service. We will be back for other events and wine shopping here.

Thank you for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed the wine walk! Unfortunately it can be difficult to order enough wine for everyone to take home the night of the wine walk but our orders usually come in in less than a week!

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 wines for you to sample by the glass as well as some basic meat and cheese boards. The food is perhaps a bit overpriced, and I wish they'd put a few more slightly cheaper wines on the menu every now and then. I appreciate that they put some seriously good wines on the menu, but I don't always want to pay $50 for 2 glasses of wine and a few slices of cheddar.

Hello Kevin, Thank you for the great review! The wines we feature by the glass are mostly in the $7- $17 price range with a few outliers in our "Premium Pour" selection. We do offer Happy Hour Tuesday through Friday from 5-7pm where we do $2 off all full glasses of wine and $1 off each of the meat and cheese options.

No pretensions, no airs - just an in-depth knowledge of wines. Our host provided us samples of what he thought we would like based upon what we said we liked and he was spot-on. There is a good selection of wines from the US, France, Italy, Australia, etc., and it's a rotating stock. We were very surprised that pricing was very competitive with large stores, but without that impersonal feeling.

This is run by Scott who enlists the help of his parents at their monthly wine tastings. I love their wine tastings since they include some snacks and have a wide variety of wines for sampling plus the people they have pouring are quite knowledgeable. The big plus is the atmosphere created for the tasting with the family presence. Last week my wife and I dropped by for a drink and when talking to the lady next to we, we realized we were born 30 miles apart in Texas. Small world. Stop, try, enjoy.

Thank you Jerry! The wine tastings and wine academy are both a great time, and keep an eye out we have some plans for new events coming soon! Also you wouldn't believe the number of "small world" moments that happen here, it's always a fun conversation!
