It all started while working in a restaurant 10 years ago, he a busser and she a hostess who didn’t know a thing about wine. While we fell in love with the bustle of restaurants, the community they foster, and the incredible wines that have allowed us to travel while never leaving town, we also fell in downright love with each other. As our restaurant life swept us off our feet into separate restaurants, into management positions, into sommelier certifications, we managed to throw a surprise wedding and our sweet baby girl into the mix too. Then the wind (ahem, a global pandemic) blew us quicker into the direction of here. We are Marissa, Wyatt & Rez Smith, and this is BESTIE your neighborhood wine shop.
We love wine, the people that create it and its way of connecting us with those we get to pour it for – whether guests, family or friends. California’s Central Valley is our home, we want to do all that we can to take care of it. So, here we are with so much love and all of our might. Bestie is our opportunity to bring quality wines from small, honest producers to the folks of our community. We believe you deserve each other.
Thank you for the opportunity.
With love and gratitude, The Smiths
