We have enjoyed wine for a long time. Many of our friends share the same enjoyment as we often get together and try to “out do” one another by sharing something new and exciting. To us, the best part of the experience is sharing each other’s company over a great bottle of wine.
Several years before my retirement, I knew I wanted to do something completely different than the typical fishing and traveling. I thought, “how great it would be to start a business where I worked with my hobby, wine!” After ruling out the grueling restaurant business, I focused on finding the perfect location for a retail wine store and tasting bar, and knew it had to be somewhere in Huntington Beach where I grew up. I love the downtown area so that is where I centered my search. After 4 years of failed attempts, I was lucky enough to become friends with the owners of Plaza Almeria on Main Street. They loved my concept and graciously accepted me into their family of businesses.
Main Street Wine Company is and will always be a place for adults to relax and enjoy a glass of wine, champagne, or a tasting flight to some soft music in a comfortable environment. A place on Main street where people can talk and actually hear one another. A place to shop for incredible wines from all over the world with paired cheeses, fresh breads, olive oils, and aged balsamics, all of which will be available to enjoy here or for purchase to indulge anywhere you like in your own style.
