It’s no secret that the Midlands is exploding with new options for purchasing and consuming wine. With wine bars and flights and tours and festivals, painting parties and ubiquitous Wine Down Wednesdays, enthusiasm for the beverage has skyrocketed, and it’s become a popular part of our community’s culture. If you are like many people and enjoy a glass, but don’t know a vintage from a varietal, allow Palmetto Wine Sellers to help you find and select the perfect bottle.
Palmetto Wine Sellers, located on Devine Street, is a unique, modern, and personal way to buy wine. They’re in the business of fine wine; the kind that makes food actually taste better, or an occasion more special. Rocky Menge is the establishment’s founder and head Wine Guy. He wants to share his passion for and knowledge of wine with you. He can help you find high quality bottles in your price range, consult on your new wine cellar, and advise you on curating wines for special events. Rocky, through a series of questions, will narrow down which wines best suit your requirements, and make specific suggestions. The Wine Guy is like having your own personal sommelier!
The Palmetto Wine Sellers difference is that they are not a traditional retail store, but an “independent wine concierge service”; a wine pipeline of sorts. They do all of the legwork, investigating wine distributors and wholesale inventories nationwide for unique and hard to find wines. They then offer those wines to you through individual consultations, tastings and their website.
On the comprehensive website you will find a list of wine collections by region, color, rating, vintage, varietal, pairing, and price, as well as some exclusive categories, like what to pair with different foods; what to serve when your boss is coming for dinner, new products, party wines, and Wine Guy recommendations. Each wine is accompanied by an image of the bottle, its description, history, and rating. “Words from The Wine Guy”, Rocky’s weekly wine blog, is worth visiting on the site and subscribing to. His posts include practical information such as Great Reds under $20, local wine tasting events, and his Wine of the Week.
Palmetto Wine Sellers regularly hosts events at their Tasting Room that will help you learn about fine wine, and pair you with the best vintage for your needs. The room is also available for private tasting parties for you and your friends! For a fun, informative, and unforgettable experience, just let Palmetto Wine Sellers know which wines you would like to try and your price parameters, and they will make them available to you to sample and for purchase.
