Back in 1949 a man known to many in Houston simply as Richard opened his first liquor store at 2124 South Shepherd. In the old country, his family drank wine with every evening meal, so it was only natural for Richard to become Houston's first serious wine merchant. His philosophy: know your product well, keep prices low and treat your customers like family. This is the philosophy that still guides us today.
Our staff has the experience, the service, and the "thirst" for always learning more. Stop by any of our stores and you'll be impressed with their depth of knowledge and the desire to please your palate.
I've been in the liquor business for over 50 years. 15 of those were with A&D Liquors as owner, Liquor and Wine Buyer and managing 5+ stores. I worked briefly with Accent Wine Distributors as a wine consultant and wine salesman. I've been with Richards for 30 years and in my current role as Wine Buyer and Sales Director, I am focused on continuing to bring the finest wines and spirits that our customers have come to appreciate and expect. Look for the biggest smile in the store and you'll find me!
I have been in the wine & spirits industry since the 70s, when I began working for my father-in-law at A&D Liquors. I joined Richard's in 1978, and I have been the manager at the same Woodway Richard's for the last 12 years. I am known for being a liquor and beer afficianado and have learned a lot about wine since being a part of the Richard's Team. My preference is for red wines, especially the bigger, full-bodied wines of California, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Italy and South America. It's an exciting industry, but why I love it best is getting to know my customers and what they like (and I enjoy our staff here, as well!)
As manager of the Richardís Liquors and Fine Wine Kirby location my team and I are focused on delivering exceptional customer service and the finest wines and spirits available. I look forward to meeting you and helping in any way I can to meet your wine and spirits needs. The Richard's Team can help with a single bottle or pull together a diverse selection of wines and spirits for any size gathering or event. At Richardís our goal is to exceed expectations and establish a trusted and professional relationship with each and every customer we have the honor to serve.
