What goods or services do you provide? Valet Wine & Spirits is a full service liquor store and free liquor delivery service located in Lionshead. Our mission is to deliver beer, wine and spirits to the Vail Valley — for free, on demand and at a cost exactly the same as if you went to the store and picked it up. To some that may seem impossible. But people said the same thing when founder Joe Tomasic and his partners started delivering skis and snowboards in the early 1990s.
What’s new and exciting at your place? There are now nine ski rental delivery services in Vail and hundreds more around the country. After being in the ski industry for 25 years, we still could not believe no one was delivering great beer, wine and spirits on demand. You can get a pizza, maybe some groceries but no booze? Now you can!
What philosophy do you follow that sets you apart from your competitors? We set out to create a formula that allows us to buy large, sell inexpensive and deliver free. This is not an app. These are local women and men, who know their products and are here and excited to serve you. We have very fair minimum orders depending on your location. Having a party and run out of beer? Running late from work and need a bottle of wine for dinner? Call us. We are Dominoes Pizza of booze!
Tell us a little about your background and education. Our staff has more than 100 years of beer, wine and spirit experience from the vineyard to the glass. We carry everything from PBR cans to Duchesse Bourgogne Beer, and wines from Kendall Jackson to Dom Perignon. Valet Wine & Spirits has one of the most diverse bourbon, vodka, liqueur, gin and tequila selections in the valley at every price point and we support Colorado products more than anyone in town.
