Featured Merchant: Pearl Wine Company
It’s Thanksgiving 2010, Dustin Chiappetta and his mother were cooking dinner and she asked what he thought of the wine she bought. Dustin shrugged and said “not much”, he then told her that the wine she picked out was actually produced by a large corporation that buys bulk juice and slaps an attractive label on it. She then said “well I don’t want to drink that, what wine should I buy?”
That question inspired Dustin to start his own business plan for a wine shop that would exclusively focus on family owned wineries. In 2015 Dustin opened Pearl Wine Company, a vision that culminates 16 years of the wine, beer and spirit industry.
“Families have the passion, integrity and knowledge to produce the best wines in the world. In short, they make the right decisions in the vineyards regarding farming and viticulture.”
The shop also has teamed up with Culture Meet & Cheese and now offers an eclectic meat and cheese selection that is curated by one of the best cheese shops in Denver. This is a new feature for Pearl Wine so Dustin recommends the River Bear Bacon to pair with your favorite bubbles, nothing is better than champagne and bacon!
As a business owner, Dustin is driven by hospitality and service along with being a steward in the community. He believes that there is a responsibility of business owners to the community around them. Each year Pearl Wine Company hosts its Annual Anniversary tasting on the 1st Saturday in November with ticket sales benefiting Asbury, McKinnley, Grant, U-Park and South.

The Pearl Wine team also wants you to know that they have a monthly wine club called “The Share”. The club hosts cheese pairings and focuses on organic and sustainable wines. Bonus, wine club members receive 10% off in all wine, beer and spirits. For more information visit neverabadbottle.com
