Yes, it’s true.  After a decade of selling wine on Brady Street we just couldn’t get enough – Waterford Wine Company is expanding!  In addition to our flagship store on Milwaukee’s East Side, we added a second location in the heart of downtown Delafield, at 631 Genesee Street.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Waterford without a giant party. So not only are we having our Grand Opening on the 22nd, but we will also host our 2017 Summer Sampler.  That’s right—we will be pouring more than 40 wines, beers and spirits for you to taste and purchase.

We want to thank you all for your business over the years which has allowed us to grow.  Please come join us at the new store to celebrate our expansion.  Cheers and see you soon!

Up and down the Rhone River is a multitude of wine regions – some so small they fit only a single chateau, some large enough to cover multiple villages.  In this diversity is a great wealth and stylistic range of wines.  Covering everything from powerful reds, textural whites and crisp, refreshing roses, the Rhone River truly has it all.  And just for fun and comparison’s sake – we’re gonna throw in a couple Rhone Rangers from the United States!  We’ll see you here.
