The Wine Wave opened June 2013 by owners Jeremiah Flores and Lindsey Gasparini. Over the last 8+ plus years, inventory has expanded dramatically and selection diversified, to encompass wines from around the world with over two thousand different wines, Champagne, liquors and craft beers. We continue to expand the inventory every week and encourage suggestions from our customers on what they would like to see in their local neighborhood shop. 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 for our guests and partners who trust us to source new and interesting offerings.
Our goal is simple, it's that every bottle you purchase exceeds your expectations.
Delray Beach is not only where our business is located, but we all also live, eat, and play in Delray as well. We love the community of Palm Beach and truly appreciate all our locals who support us year round. You will be sure to see Jeremiah, Lindsey, Miguel, Jill, or Stewart are 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 premium liquor for any occasion.

Jeremiah A. Flores
Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana – Jeremiah spent his formative years after college in between Quantico and southern California. He is the wine buyer and operations manager, working with domestic suppliers, importers and distributors. 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 that is based in customer satisfaction. An entrepreneurial spirit combined with a thriving Palm Beach wine scene, has resulted in an adventurous and prosperous start as a 100% independently owned retailer on the famed Atlantic Avenue in Delray. Find him enjoying the wines of Piedmont, Burgundy, Tuscany, and Rioja.
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, chartering jets, and developing local community partnerships throughout South Florida. Her medical background includes sales, finance, client retention, marketing and any activity that involves a glass of vintage Blanc de Blancs Champagne. Lindsey seeks out the value wines that are hard to attain and we often catch her drinking bubbles when she isn’t researching Piedmont, Rosé, Burgundy – or planning her next international trip to an emerging wine drinking region.
Miguel S. Ostrowski
Brazilian by birth, with ties to Massachusetts, this diehard New England sports fan studied Physical Education and High Performance training in Rio de Janeiro before arriving in 2007 to south Florida. A passion for motorsports led him to the race track when he co-founded a small-track racing and support services venture. However what was originally a subject of pure enjoyment and fascination, after passing his first sommelier course in 2011, he turned wine into a profession and never looked back. Experienced in nearly all aspects of the industry: opening, managing, and curating for wine bars, fine dining, retail, and distribution - he excels in private cellar consultation, acquisitions, and tasting seminars. An old school romantic at heart, he loves the traditions of the old world - specifically France and Spain. Catch him in the fast-lane @miguel.somm on Instagram - or abusing a bottle of Grenacha after a long day!
Certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers
Advance Sommelier Candidate for the Court of Master Sommeliers
Stewart J. King
A long time resident of Delray, our official Sunday driver self-described as 'stUBER', floor commander, and avid wine drinker. Anything Stewie Blues tastes, he can not only describe vividly, recommend (or find an alternative), but also educate customers on. He has spent the past 11 years working in a wine shop and has refined his palate and knowledge of fine wine – proving to be a trusted source to locals, while an asset for the team during private wine tastings and seminars. When not drinking aged Tequila and craft Mezcal, you can also find him surfing the waves off the coast of north beach, or rockin’ out to live music while drinking an ice cold imported Mexican beer - a nod from his surfing days in sunny Southern California. It's true, the Malibu kid still lives.
A native Northeasterner from the DC/MD/VA area, Adam has transitioned from a quasi-snowbird to a full-time Florida resident. New to the wine game, he's brought his IT skills to The Wine Waves ever growing eCommerce business. Outside the shop you can find him soaking up the Florida sunshine on the links or tennis court.
New to the team, new to Delray ...stayed tuned...
