Welcome to Red Slate Wine Company

Wine, regardless of price, is something to share with friends, ease the daily grind, and make life more enjoyable. Red Slate provides an ideal location to taste quality wine, learn about its history, buy a few bottles, or host a private party.

Here at Red Slate we like to get to know our clients and their palates.  We tend to custom order wine rather than stocking a large inventory.  We believe in finding the best wine for you, not just selling excess inventory.  Please contact us about any specific wines you’re searching for or if you would like our assistance selecting wines for your personal collection.
