Owners Jenn Conrad and Rich Ruel proudly opened the doors of Wine on Main in May 2020. After 3 years of operating a similar store, Cava de Vino in Nashua, they moved north to the community of Concord, New Hampshire.
Jenn and Rich have a simple philosophy: to make the joy of sharing good wine accessible to everyone.
This means selling high quality wines from around the globe at a reasonable price. This means providing sample wines. This means offering gifts, baskets and accessories to complete anyone’s wine experience. This means hosting tastings such that friends and family can gather in the inviting tasting room at Wine on Main. This means free delivery in the Concord area.
They take pride in seeking limited production, uncommon and specialty wines. By working closely with vineyards with smaller capacities, they are able to obtain top quality wines at an attractive price point. Often sitting right next door to the ‘big guys’, their wines originate from the same soil and grapes. Yet, the smaller wineries bring closer relationships, family history and shared stories. The large manufacturers don’t provide this type of connection.
To understand Wine on Main is to understand Jenn and Rich. Growing up across the street from a winery, Jenn’s fabric is woven with a keen interest in wines. Working in sales and customer service for many years, Jenn enjoys bringing people together. With her passion for design, she provides a creative flair to making wine experiences through tastings, events and gift baskets.
Trained as an electrical engineer, Rich has lead teams, run corporate trainings and traveled extensively around the world. His career journeys not only exposed him to different cultures and food, but sparked his interest in all that wine has to offer to enhance those experiences.
After many years of working together in a corporate environment, Jenn and Rich directed their mutual passion for wine to opening a business of their own. Just as they seek close connections with their winemakers, they value the community that a specialty wine store offers. Wine on Main thrives on providing personalized and memorable experiences. They hand pick their brokers and wine. They study and learn about the different wine regions and grapes. They are WSET 2 (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) certified. They are Wine on Main, an “Experience for Everyone.”
Come into the store, shop, attend a wine tasting or order a custom gift basket to share with a special one. Jenn and Rich and their dedicated team are here to help you.
