I endowed Woodland Wine Merchant with all the traits I'd ever wanted to see in a bottle shop. Modern but warm. Easy to navigate. Focused on small producers.

My goal is to show up every day with the same passion that drove me to open this store in the first place. By creating a space that we enjoy, I believe that, as a team, we can more effectively pass that passion onto you.

Ultimately, it's a labor of love. And I wouldn't want it any other way.
