About The Wine Poste - Meet Our Wine Experts

The Wine Poste

The Wine Poste is a new twist on retail and online wine sales in Texas. We are located in a recently redeveloped 4500sqft warehouse in the heart of the burgeoning Design District of Dallas, TX. Our venue was designed with comfort in mind. We have three distinct wine tasting and event entertaining areas for our patrons, the Lounge, the Library, and our private Banquet Room. These three rooms can be rented individually or all at once giving our potential clients the opportunity to use the space exactly to their needs – wine tasting, winemaker dinners, catered events, etc.

While our core business is sourcing and selling the most delicious wines through our website and our onsite wine program, we are more than equipped to handle both public and private wine tastings, elegant wine dinners, corporate meetings and mixers, convention visitors, birthday parties, wedding showers, bridal showers, baby showers, or just a night out with a friend enjoying a bottle of wine.

Please browse our website to learn more about our wine program, wine clubs, wine events, and premier event rentals and wine tastings.

After leaving Red Coleman’s in 2002, James took on the role as Managing Partner of The Wine Market and More off of Blackburn and Oak Lawn in Dallas.  There James oversaw the day to day operations of the wine store and wine bar including purchasing, inventory control, personnel management and coordinating wine tastings and special events.  At the same time James was chosen to judge The Dallas Morning News International Wine Competition 10 out of 13 years. 

James, always the independent entrepreneur, started The Dallas Wine Company in 2010 and continued holding wine tastings, wine maker dinners, and selling wine in cooperation with The Wine Therapist in the Lakewood area of Dallas.  

James has a loyal following due to his excellent pallet, his deep connections to wine makers, and his ability to identify beautiful wines at value price points.  He is a leader in the Dallas wine industry and is a true asset at the Wine Poste & www.WinePoste.com
