Redding Wines and Spirits

About Us

RodneyWhen I retired in 2002 after a 35 year career as a trader in the aluminium industry, owning a wine store was nowhere on the agenda. I planned to take life easier, travel less (having spent half my working life in aeroplanes and hotels), do a little consulting, and relax a bit.

By the beginning of 2004 I was bored! A two line ad. in the local newspaper looking for part time help in a local wine store seemed like a great way to indulge my hobby--I have been collecting wine for 20 years and the employment conditions offered generous staff discounts--and get out of the house from time to time.

That's how I started at Redding Wines and Spirits. Six months later I became the manager, and now, two years later I own it!

Why? It's difficult to put into words, but the combination of the location, seven miles from any other commercial outlets, and the local very special community just make running the store much more than a job. Our reliance on the local residents for support creates an exceptional atmosphere - we know just about everyone who comes in. People come by just to chat or to see what's going on, especially on our Saturday tastings.

It's like running a neighborhood bar without having to wash glasses!

So come and join the fun.
