Impact Update: McKinney Wine Merchant

McKinney Wine Merchant McKinney Wine Merchant offers several different wine options ranging in price from $9-$400.[/caption]

On April 5, 2011, Andy Doyle's business, McKinney Wine Merchant, joined several other businesses in downtown McKinney's renaissance. Shortly after he said he gained a cult following.

The business recently celebrated five years, and Doyle said he still has a loyal following. He said 95 percent of his business consists of regulars, adding that he loves to shine the light on new products for customers.

McKinney Wine Merchant is a fine wine store that carries wines from small independent producers with prices ranging from $9 up to $400 for collectible bottles that Doyle said is just a small part of his business.

Doyle has also found partnership with other local businesses such as Local Yocal Farm to Market and its Cab and Slab monthly membership ($100) that includes two generous servings of pasture-raised Wagyu or 100% percent Certified Angus beef steaks from Local Yocal and a world-class, collectible bottle of red wine selected by McKinney Wine Merchant.

McKinney Wine Merchant is located at  120 W. Virginia St. and is open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tue.-Sat. and 12-4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information call 972-542-4636 or visit www.mckinneywine.com.
