About Us

Smith's Liquor Gallery opened in May 2005, when owner Tim Smith decided to turn his passions for food, wine and people into a liquor store. Tim wanted a mom-and-pop store that was friendly, well-lit, and inviting — with spacious aisles and quality food selections.

Smith's is a family-operated store, with Tim's parents Steve and Kathy serving as co-owners. Smith family favorites include the store's pinot noirs, craft beers, and scotches. The Smiths have enjoyed wine tastings across the globe.

After completing classes with the International Wine Guild, both Tim and Kathy became Certified Wine Merchants and Kathy was recently made a certified Executive Sommelier through the IWG.

Contact Kathy if you are interested in learning more about wine, hosting a wine tasting, planning a wine event, cellar management, or have a wine related question.
