Evolution. Building A Perfect Team

Imagine the perfect wine & spirits retail experience - we did. Then we created it. We've built this store in our heads a thousand times over the past twenty or so years. What we have distilled down into this location are the best ideas of an industry-wide search of what works, and what doesn't.

We came home to Bakersfield to be close to our families and to raise our children in a community we admire. Our goal is to provide you with the level of retail wine & spirits that is typically only available in vast metropolitan communities like Los Angeles or San Francisco. Imbibe Wine & Spirits Merchant will have the most comprehensive wine & spirits selection in central California, with a knowledgeable and friendly staff who will gladly guide you through our large inventory.

If you'd like to get to know a little bit more about each member of the team, read on. It's fairly entertaining stuff - and mostly accurate.
