Wine Splurge started with a passion for wine, and the desire to share that passion with friends and family. Mike started hosting wine tasting events at work, beginning with TOMS Shoes, then continuing at EnCore Interiors, the aerospace company, where he works now. These were team building events, which everyone enjoyed, because Mike would prepare food, paired with each wine theme. While at TOMS, he only served wine and cheese, to pair with the wine, but the food pairings are at a completely different level now.
With each tasting, Mike was asked where the bottles could be purchased, his answer would be either “Wine Exchange”, “Hi Times”, “K&L”, “Total Wine”, or “directly from the wineries”. Since he was doing the selling anyway, he decided to launch an online store, to compliment the wine tasting events. In 2018, Wine Splurge received their license to sell wine. Since then, they have added over 100 different wines, with a couple of verticals. Mike likes to offer unique wine, that is either true to the Terroir, or something truly unique from a producer, in a particular wine region.
Mike’s family is involved with Wine Splurge, too. Pam, Mike's wife, along with their children, Andrew and Rachel, sample wine and take photos, used for the website and social media.
Wine Splurge is committed to offering you great wine and great service, at a great price!
