Imagine the perfect wine & spirits retail experience - we did. Now we've created it.
We 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.
Our goal is nothing less than to make Imbibe Wine & Spirits Merchant a leader in our field.
Our brand new, state of the art retail facility has everything we've dreamed of during
our 25 years in the wine and spirits business in Northern and Southern California.
We're proud of the work we've done over the past 20 years in
Southern California, building friendships with winemakers, winery
owners, retailers and wholesalers throughout the state. Those
partnerships mean we have the pulse of the industry well in hand, know
which up-and-coming wineries are the ones to watch, know which regions
are producing great values, and that we are constantly building our
knowledge. We are confident you'll be impressed with our selections of
wine, beer and spirits from around the world.
We came home to Bakersfield in 2006 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. We're very excited to be able to present our wines
to you in their proper environment, utilizing our cold room. We will
guide you through different regions, producers and vintages using our
Wine Bar to highlight both library selections (properly cellared,
collectible bottles) and new releases. For those of you with wine
collections of your own, we're excited and proud to offer Bakersfield's
first temperature and humidity controlled wine storage facility on
