Description: The people Red attracted, they were the inspiration. The patrons of a wine boutique turned out to be people who were open to the finer experiences. What a pleasure to fulfill their interests in fine food, good company and quality service. In rising to those requirements we found Red had become a restaurant, unique in its focus on the pleasure of an evening. Wine was the starting point. Beyond the snobbery that once surrounded wine in America, Red let’s you explore, enjoy and fulfill your interest, your own way, using a serving instrument that’s unique to our region. Please consider this your own invitation to join us for an evening soon.

If you are searching for a culinary experience like no other, look no further than R and D Wine Boutique. The restaurant is nestled amongst other stores in a strip mall. The owners, Ryan and Dawn, have created a welcoming place to enjoy a wonderful meal and try different wines in a unique way.
We started with the cheese plate. There were so many choices, but Ryan was able to give us an excellent recommendation. I had the pear and gorgonzola flat bread and my husband had the special that evening. We were very happy with both. You have to save room for the crème brulee. It was outstanding!
Thank you Ryan and Dawn for a very special evening. Next time we are back in the area, we will return for another visit!

My sister lives in Bluffton and has been telling about this place. While visiting from Oregon, she and I had a "girls" lunch there. It is wonderful. What a fun way to try new wines and the food was great as well. Lovely menu. The owner was wonderful. Very informative and attentive without being in the way. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys wine or would like to learn more about it. Great inventory for purchase as well.

Love this little hole-in-the-wall place. The owners are delightful, the experience great fun to share with a date or friends. You can purchase a card that fits into machines that dispense your wine selection self-service style. You can dispense 1, 3 or 6 oz. into your glass and taste/sample as many wines as you wish or order/purchase entire bottles. Dawn is very knowledgeable and can help you select the perfect wine for your tastes. The food is also fabulous and a great compliment to your tasting experience. They also have a beautiful little room in that back that seats 8 (I believe). The perfect choice for private dining.

This is one of those special places you will never forget. Every time I come here there is a wonderful memory created. I moved out of the Bluffton area, but when I return to R&D, Dawn always remembers what types of wine and food we like. The wines offered and the menu are carefully planned with love. It is like a European or New York experience. This would be an excellent place to have a party or business meeting. It is also a great spot for Happy Hour, a gathering of friends and/or family, or solo.

My wife and I were in the Bluffton area for our anniversary and ended up at R&D after reviewing Trip Advisor for the best restaurant in Bluffton. It is ranked #1 on Trip Advisor for the Bluffton area so we figured we would try it. We were a little hesitant when we first pulled up due to it being a small storefront in a shopping center. However, once inside and greeted, we felt extremely confident about our choice. The owners were extremely kind and professional. The food was excellent. We tried chocolate covered bacon for the first time and loved it. So of course, you have to fall in love with a place that serves great things such as chocolate and bacon together. The wine selection is outstanding and there is a wine dispenser where you can try numerous different wines on your own without waiting for your server.
