Serving the Richmond, Virginia community from our location at Libbie and Grove Avenues since 1985, J. Emerson is the area’s longest-established fine wine retailer. Since we started, the wine world has grown and changed considerably, but our commitment to offering a well-considered and in-depth selection of wines to our customers has remained constant. As trends and tastes have shifted through the years, our approach hasn’t appreciably changed.
At our core, we are a neighborhood store with a wide selection of value-priced, everyday wines, often at prices at or below that of local big-box and grocery retailers. At the same time, though, we are a destination store for the Richmond area, offering a number of collectible, rare, and highly-allocated bottlings with a particular emphasis on France, Italy, Spain, Germany and California. We go to great lengths to ensure that our inventory is kept in the best possible condition, maintaining a constant temperature of 63 degrees Fahrenheit with controlled humidity, and storing our bottles on their sides to keep the corks in good shape.
Some of the Additional Services We Offer Include:
- Special orders for most wines approved for sale in the state of Virginia
- Extensive selection of cut-to-order artesanal cheeses
- Consultation for weddings, parties and special events (large and small)
- Case sales from our large inventory backstock
- Local delivery available (call us for more information)
We offer a 15% discount on full cases of wine,
and a 10% discount on mixed cases.
