About Us.

Hi I’m William, owner of Exquisite Wines. My first real exposure to craft wine making was from, well, home. My parents would make the wine in our basement and I was always wondering what that smell was! Little did I know, it went from a smell to an aroma that I would come to love.

I have always been around wine, from my mother having a successful brew-on-premise wine business to owning one myself. I’m always curious about different wines from all over the globe. After working in the restaurant industry for 12 years, it gave me a great perspective on commercial wines from different regions around the world.

With this outlook on wine I’ve traveled across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand sampling many different wines from various regions to further expand my knowledge and curiosity.

I’m a lover of wine and each grape’s story that’s been told, is being told, or yet to be told.

Got a question (or you’re just curious about wine)? Don’t hesitate to contact me!
