Our Story

Discover. Be Inspired. Drink Good Wine.

The best part of drinking wine is the discovery of it all. Here at Verve Wine, we believe that everyone should have access to good wine, regardless of experience or budget. Our team is made up of a passionate group of wine drinkers who feel that discovering and drinking good wine should be both easy and compelling, without any sense of intimidation or pretension. Above all, drinking good wine should be inspiring and fun!

Drink Good Wine. It’s That Simple.

So what exactly is good wine? To us, good wine is produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way, reflects the place from which it comes, and tastes downright delicious. This also embodies the way the wine is handled in the cellar. We love working with producers who use minimal intervention in the cellar to produce clean, flawless bottles that equally respect the environment and fruit from which they’re made, yet remain incredibly tasty. Simply put, less is usually more!

We work hard to source bottles from family-owned properties, both emerging and classic, to bring the best of what the wine world has to an array of palate preferences and budgets — that’s right, good wine doesn’t always mean expensive!
