First of all, I will like to let everyone know that I am allergic to alcohol. I am really excited to write about the retail beverage store analysis. The liquor store that I have picked is called Cathedral Wine & Liquor. The reason why I have picked this liquor store is that is two blocks away from my house. I have been to this liquor store like 3 to 4 times to help my friends to buy some alcohol. The staff from this liquor store always have upside-down emotions. sometimes they are in a good mood and sometimes they have a terrible attitude. I always call a certain place before going to that place. So every time  I call their liquor store no one picks up my phone. Which makes me upset. This liquor store is a family business and is owned by  Hugues Asdrubal.

The first time when I went to this liquor store I was lost. As I remember before taking  W&B class I didn’t know anything about wine.  I remember when I was a little girl I thought that a bottle of wine is made by the day that is shown on the bottle. But actually that is not true. The first thing that I have learned in this class that the date that is shown on the bottle is the date that the grapes were picked. I think wine is really interesting as the entire process from picking up the grapes, Pressing the grapes, fermenting clarification, aging, and bottling. I really enjoy going to a liquor store after W&B class. Most of the time I will go on a Wednesday and buy some alcohol for my friends. I really enjoy cooking and I have friends that they really like drinking wine. So after W&B class I will go to the liquor store and buy the bottle of wine that I like the most after tasting them in class for my friends to pare with the food.

I did not have the chance to talk to the owner and the couple of times that I have been there was a lady who was really rude. I asked them if I can take a picture of the liquor or liquor store but I have been rejected. I couldn’t see any picture on yelp. The price of this liquor store is affordable. They have all kinds of wine, whiskey, Ron, champagne, sparkling wine. Most of the sparkling wine is a place on the fridge. Hopefully the next time I go to this liquor store I have the opportunity to talk to the boss and learn more about wine.

  1. Hi Valentina, yeah many wine stores aren’t very fond of people asking questions or taking pictures. It’s unfortunate because it gives them a bad reputation since people feel unwelcome

  2. Hello Valentina,
    I am sorry to hear that you are allergic to alcohol and had unpleasant experience in the wine retail store. I believe you will meet some profession and passionate employees in other retail stores. Keep our sprite up for study wine!
