For the second time, WineStyles Tasting Station has ranked within the Top 100 Wine Retailers across America! We’re excited and proud to be recognized for our unique concept and shopping experience. More importantly, we want to recognize all the WineStyles franchise owners who made this award possible. Their passion for the wine industry and dedication to their local business is the epitome of the WineStyles experience, ensuring our customers truly “taste, learn and enjoy" great wines and craft beers. We’re honored to have them in our WineStyles family.

For the third time we named our Top 100 Retailers, celebrating successful off-premise businesses across the country. For the second time we held the awards in person, during a banquet in Austin, TX, at the Beverage Alcohol Retailers Confernce. And for the first time, we’ve dedicated an entire issue of Beverage Dynamics to these awards.
Coming out of a pandemic year when nearly everything happened virtually (including the 2020 Top 100 ceremony), we were eager to get back to normal in Austin. While the turnout was understandably lighter than normal, dozens of retailers gathered together to network with industry experts, share best practices and celebrate being on the road again.
We welcomed them back with an awards banquet that counted down our winners in attendance – including our Hall of Fame inductee Twin Liquors and Retailer of the Year Gary’s Wine & Marketplace. As you’ll see in the photos later in this issue, the industry leaders were well represented in Austin. Read entire issue >
