Meet Tony and Cheryl

Cheryl and Tony from the Best Wine Shop in Town

Tony Rousseau, proudly a self-made wine professional, recognized his infatuation for the wine industry in his early 20’s. Intrigued by the depth of both fine wine and the vineyard lifestyle, including the environment, process, planning, people and ultimately the fine wine result, passion fueled his need to know more.

More than 35 years later, Tony has devoted his career to creating close relationships with preeminent wineries domestically and internationally. Surrounding himself with the best in the business, Tony has developed a sixth sense that connects wine to those who also appreciate that wine is part of their everyday lifestyle.

Cheryl’s 25+ years in sales/marketing and relationship building bring a solid business balance to our shop. Cheryl also co-organizes and creates the popular in-house wine tastings, education series and private parties. She is a foodie, loves to cook and garden, and she’s an avid supporter in local farm to table philosophy. Cheryl is an intricate part in running the day to day here at the shop.


Join Tony as he brings his many years of wine industry experience to our complimentary weekly tastings. Wines from around the world are selected to broaden your palate and increase your familiarity with the many varietals of today. Looking for a special experience? Tony offers private tasting sessions for small groups.
