Menu of Services

Customized Cases: Never know what wine to grab off the shelf? Want to venture out and try new varietals? Want to be surprised with new things to try? We can compile a mixed case of wine based off a brief phone consultation discussing your tastes in beverages and the budget you have in mind. After this information is gathered, John Mark will schedule your case pickup at a local retailer near you. (Delivery not allowed due to Alabama State laws.)

We also can assist you with custom orders of craft beer.

In addition to customized case orders, we can facilitate in-home wine tastings, food and wine pairings, and we also can collaborate with in-home wine dinners. For those with cellars, not only can we help you stock your cellar, but we also can help with you organization and planning of when to open those special bottles.

We also offer monthly Wine Club case offerings. For the month of July we have the Bellissima Box“, “Amy’s August Box“, and “Off the Beaten Path” box.

Service area includes: Lake Martin, Wetumpka, Prattville, Montgomery, Enterprise, Dothan, Auburn, and Opelika, Alabama. Also will consider further travel.

Let’s wine about it.

“I love wine. Unfortunately, like most people, I am not a sommelier which means that I’ve purchased a lot of wines that don’t quite work for my palate. Enter, John Mark. After a short and breezy phone call, he put together a mixed case of wine for me based on my few fumbling notes about the things that I know I like, and totally knocked it out of the park! I found two of my new favorite wines in that curated case [and I didn’t have to spend my normal half-hour in the wine aisle trying to figure out what to take a chance on]. I’m so excited to be ordering my second case this week!”
