Finch Fine Wines
“Friendly, Knowledgeable, and Passionate”
Finch Fine Wines was established in 2019 by Ed Finch, a lawyer who hadn’t originally planned on owning a wine shop. A series of friendships and fateful occurrences helped established within him a deep passion and appreciation of wine which he now shares through one of Birmingham’s best wine shops.
When he was younger, Ed learned much from the late Bernie Fradin, the owner of what he and his oenophile lawyer friends considered the best wine shop in Manhattan, including the importance of having a large selection and cellar. Read more about Ed’s interesting story here.
Ed stepped up to fill a void in Birmingham’s wine scene when the most popular wine store at Western Mountain Brook closed.
Finch Fine Wines boasts a team of certified sommeliers that specialize in both New World and Old World style wines. Since it’s creation, the shop has experienced significant growth, especially on their online platform.
Finch Fine Wines describes their business mission as:
“Delivering the highest quality wine at any given price point while providing a unique customer experience focused on education and entertainment. We specialize in selecting wines of quality, value, and positive ethical impact.”
They strongly believe that a wine shop is a place to not only meet new people, but share experiences and facilitate new ones as well.
Technology to Conveniently Offer a Diverse Selection:
Finch Fine Wines has fantastic in-store selections including pre-chilled champagnes and wines. It doesn’t stop there – a touch screen computer and two iPads are available to enable customers to order from an even larger selection of other wines (over 3000!), with most orders being ready for pickup the next business day. And of course, for those who prefer to choose wines online, their website offers convenient ordering for pickup in-store.
“At the moment one of our “best value” producers is Wildeberg out of South Africa. We carry their Chenin Blanc and Semillon, which are both stunning for less than $25!”
