Red or White is bringing a new concept to Birmingham

Forest Park is one of Birmingham’s most unique areas of the city, so it makes perfect sense for Red or White to introduce their one-of-a-kind services to the neighborhood.

We couldn’t be happier they’ve chosen Clairmont as the street for their fourth establishment. Other locations include: Fairhope, Mobile and Orange Beach. Check out what the team is bringing to the table (besides wine, of course).

Personalized experience

Red or White isn’t like walking into a grocery store and spotting the nearest Cabernet—although they can definitely help you pick out a nice one if that’s what you’re looking to drink. The team wants to get to know you and assist in choosing the best bottle for your event, gift or self.

“We’re trying to do a real personalized service. Red or White provides a kind of experience that you don’t find too much anymore. For example, if you come back in we’ll say, ‘Hey did you like that Dolcetto you tried last time?'”

Randy Williams, Owner, Red or White

Or, say you’re really into high-end Italian wines. You may get a personalized invitation to an event featuring these types of wines that nobody else will get. The team is attuned to finding something specifically for your interests.

Competitive Pricing

While the experience is far from anything you’ll find in a Costco, the prices are. Red or White works closely to watch for the best pricing so you’re getting quality wine without overpaying.

Knowledgeable background

When you come to pick up your wine for the Taste with the Master event, make sure you take a look around and chat with Todd Edmondson, the general manager.

He holds vast experience in wine and can inform you on the best pick for your purpose. More than likely, you’ll discover something totally new.

“We’re exposing people to different small wineries and regions of as an example Spain and South America. Currently, if I buy and you shop right there is a lot of amazing value.  Opportunities that you won’t find everywhere. ”

Randy Williams

Stay tuned for future plans

While the pandemic threw a corkscrew into plans, Red or White is still looking at the future with a glass half full approach. They’re planning to use the shop’s beautiful space to build out the kitchen and wine bar.

Eventually, their chef, who is considered one of Mobile’s best, will bring a nice element to Red or White—amazing cuisine. Randy says people don’t always expect a wine bar to play between the lines of formal and casual, but here you’ll get high-quality food, top of the line wines and an easy-going atmosphere. Hopefully, we’ll be clinking our glasses of bubbly over a wood-fired pizza by late spring of 2021.

Wine Wednesday has a new date! Grab your family members or friends with and buy tickets to the Taste with the Master event on Thursday, November 5, or call 205-538-5213 to purchase.
