About Us

We focus on finding unique, hidden gems for you.

We opened the doors to the Wine Dispensary in 2015 after realizing the need for a bottle shop that was more than just a retail store. We built Wine Dispensary to be a place where people can feel comfortable learning and exploring new flavors and tastes. We enjoy finding the hidden booze-related gems of the world, allowing everyone to explore value-driven items both inside- and outside-the-box.

We opened the Wine Dispensary as sort of ‘speakeasy’ bottle shop -- with zero signage for passers-by -- allowing us to discuss wine, beer, and spirits on a one-on-one basis. The Wine Dispensary is a full-service bottle shop that offers group tastings, booze for catered events, wine club memberships, and alcohol delivery services to the Denver Metro area. With a background in entertainment, we combined our floor-to-ceiling showcase room with our event space, game room, and rooftop patio because what’s more fun than throwing a party? We created an ‘underground’ space, so to speak, for people to enjoy their new-found tastes.

Wine Dispensary wants to empower consumers to increase their personal alcohol beverage knowledge through tasting anything and everything. We want people to be able to comfortably explore their palates through our varied selection of wine, beer, and spirits, and cheers to those experiences in our ‘Denver Speakeasy’ event space.


Meet Rob MacKenzie

President and Executive Sommelier


After taking and completing a series of wine and spirits classes with the International Wine & Spirits Guild in Denver Colorado, Rob Mackenzie fell in love and developed a personal passion for wine. Rob Mackenzie started his wine career after leaving the music industry as a stage manager for 14 years, working with variety of artists, including both Metallica and Michael Jackson.
As with most of us that discover the wine world, Rob fell in love quickly and decided to turn his new-found hobby into a business. A business where he could use his freshly acquired knowledge and pointed palate to help others find that next wine they didn’t even know they wanted.
Rob began assisting people in discovering their own palates by offering tastings and classes, and then sourcing the right wine for the right person. This puzzle, the element of fitting and finding all the wine pieces, led Rob to open the Wine Dispensary retail bottle shop in 2015.

“My goal is to develop individual and REAL relationships with everyone that comes in my shop.” – Rob Mackenzie
