The Wine Country offers wine and more for all spirit-lovers

winecountry.jpg“When you come to The Wine Country, we want you to have a great experience and come back often,” says owner Randy Kemner.
Kemner prides his business on its friendly expert staff, which, he explains, “love wine” but are “not snobs about it.” They offer advice on food and wine, focusing on everyday wines of high quality and affordable prices and concentrating on small artisan producers.
The 7,000-square-foot location houses a full-service fine wine store. The Wine Country offers shoppers and connoisseurs a large selection of international and domestic wines, spirits, beer and gourmet foods. Wine accessories and gift baskets are also available.
Owner Kemner was born and raised in the area. After attending UCLA and pursuing a career as a professional piano player, he entered the wine business and soon after became a wine distributor.
Kemner opened The Wine Country in 1995.
“People are amazed once they set foot inside. The place is beautiful,” says Kemner, who likens the store to a “Disneyland for grown-ups.”
He helps his business stand out by offering wine tastings, wine classes, wine dinners and complimentary monthly newsletters—services that surely influenced Food & Wine magazine when it described of The Wine Country as a “leading American wine retailer.”
This retailer makes gift giving easier by offering the monthly Wine Gourmet Club and custom gift baskets from just $35. The knowledgeable staff is always on hand to offer selection assistance.
The Wine Country, located at 2301 Redondo Avenue in Signal Hill, is regularly open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. However, to assist busy shoppers the store will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day through Sunday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
