about

David Mendez, Owner

David has more than fifteen years of experience in every facet of the wine and liquor industry including distribution, wholesale and retail sales, portfolio design, and purchasing. 

He began his career working with several specialty importers/distributors where he honed his extensive knowledge of wine regions, varietals and producers.

David later went on to work with a distributor that focused exclusively on small, artisan, family-owned and operated wineries and vineyards with limited production.  During this time he visited liquor stores all over NJ and continued to develop a passion for putting great but unknown wines into the hands of wine lovers. This experience helped shape his vision for what would become his own wine shop several years later. 

Today, at The Grapeful Palate, David shares his love and knowledge of great wine with one goal – to introduce people to new wines, beers and spirits while making the buying experience approachable and fun.
