Southern Vibes provides wine tasting experiences with expertly trained staff. Come and enjoy a glass of wine or take a bottle to go. Sit and stay a while in our relaxing atmosphere. Our mission at Southern Vibes is to create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for our customers to enjoy wine and learn more about what is in their glass. We offer tasting classes at our location.
We also offer off site tasting events for individual and corporate clients. Additionally, we can provide consulting to local businesses that want to improve the wine experience in their establishment. Our house sommeliers are trained by the International Sommelier Guild and include Alayna, who is Advanced level trained, and Jamie, who is Intermediate level trained.
The idea that spawned Southern Vibes was years in the making by two families inspired by the love of wine. Alayna and Jamie and their spouses knew they loved wine and they yearned to know more about the craft. Alayna was the first to start her formal education excelling to an advanced level sommelier in a few short years. Jamie followed behind, just recently completing his intermediate level sommelier certification. After trips to Santa Barbara County and Napa Valley in California, Niagara Peninsula in Canada, and Umqua and Applegate Valleys in Oregon Alayna and Jamie decided they wanted to know and do more. They wanted to bring that same passion and knowledge to their home, St Augustine. They decided the best way to share their experience would be to bring the feel of the tasting rooms in wine country to their area. Tasting rooms are relaxed and comfortable places where anyone can enjoy a glass of wine, discuss their experiences, and take home their favorite bottles to share with their family. They want to create a comfortable and educational environment that has a touch of southern hospitality for the community. Alayna has been known to favor wines from the Rhone Varietals, but she also loves a dry Riesling. While, Jamie cannot settle down on any varietal.
