About Us

Starrs began in 1979 as a small gourmet coffee roaster. We had three stores at one time but decided in 1991 to concentrate on one larger location in Richmond Heights. Today we offer the best selection of fine wines in St Louis under the tasting umbrella of John Nash who was one of the founders of the Wine Merchant and Bud Starr . Together John and Bud have a combined 62 years of experience with John concentrating on Rhone, Burgundy and Pinot Noir and Bud specializing in California Cabernet and Bordeaux.  Valery Starr tastes all our White Burgundies and California Chardonnay and we all throw down on the remaining regions.
We have very competitive pricing with prices ranging from 5.00 to 500.00.
We have the most innovative cheese department in St Louis and also make a wide range of foods for our case including Hummus and Trout spread. We have a cold smoker to smoke our own Scottish and Faroe Island Salmon and a hot smoker for Turkey and other meats.  We feature many gourmet items found nowhere else in St Louis.
We ship anywhere that is legal with the USA.
