The Wine Wave opened in June 2013 by Jeremiah Flores and Lindsey Gasparini.
Over the last four years, inventory has expanded dramatically and selection diversified, to encompass wines from around the world with over two thousand different wines, beers and liquors. We continue to expand the inventory every week and encourage suggestions from our customers on what they would like to see stocked. An important part of our mission is to taste everything prior to carrying it in the store in order to ensure the products offered are smart buys and of the highest quality.
We carry something for everyone’s taste or budget, and ensure that every selection is carefully picked and tasted, prior to offering it to our clients. Our goal is that every bottle you purchase exceeds your expectations.
Atlantic Ave is not only where our business is located, but we live, eat, and play Delray Beach as well. We love the community of Palm Beach country, and truly appreciate our locals who support us year round.
You will be sure to see Jeremiah, Lindsey, Danielle, and Stewart here every day behind the counter and at the weekly tastings at The Wine Wave. Whether you come by for an event, or stop in to buy a bottle, each staff member can assist you in finding the perfect bottle of Wine, Champagne, Craft Beer or Liquor selection for any occasion.
Jeremiah A. Flores
Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana – Jeremiah spent his formative years after college in California. He is the wine buyer, operations manager and behind the counter. With a degree in International Business, combined with his past experience serving as an Infantry Officer in the United States Marine Corps, with successful tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan he has established a foundation of mission accomplishment at The Wine Wave that has paved the way for a successful future here in the South East. His entrepreneurial spirit combined with a thriving Palm Beach wine scene, has resulted in an adventurous and prosperous start as independent retailer on Atlantic Avenue – in the heart of Delray Beach. As his palate continues to evolve, we find his preferences gravitating towards the wines of Barolo, Bolgheri, and Paso Robles but he truly enjoys anything with a sense of place, unique terroir, and modest alcohol levels.
Lindsey A. Gasparini
Raised in New England, she attended the University of Connecticut (UCONN) for her undergraduate degree and Nova Southeastern for her MBA. She is the Director of Marketing and her responsibilities include event planning, networking, yacht provisioning and developing local community partnerships throughout South Florida. Her background includes sales, finance, client retention, marketing and any activity that involves a glass of Champagne in her hand. Lindsey seeks out the value wines that are hard to attain and we often catch her drinking bubbles when she isn’t researching the next up and coming wine values from Priorat and Italy – or planning her next international trip to wine drinking regions.
“Stewie Blues” is a long time resident of Delray, and our official floor commander, town neighbor and avid wine drinker – meaning anything he tastes, he can not only describe, recommend, but also educate on. He has spent the past 7 years working in a wine shop and has really refined his palate and knowledge – proving to be a trusted source to locals, while an asset for the shop during wine tastings. When not drinking the latest red wine, you can also find him surfing the waves off the coast of Florida, or rockin’ out to tunes of Blues / Jazz while drinking an ice cold beer.
