Wine Theory’s primary focus is to bring great wines to the Tennessee market. Many of the wineries represented in this portfolio produce a very limited number of cases; some as little as 500 cases a year. Each winery has a story about how they came to be a part of the Wine Theory portfolio, whether they were a recommendation from a mutual friend in the industry, or their wines were discovered over dinner while traveling, each producer has been hand-selected for this unique portfolio. Working with the smaller producers allow Ryan and Leah the opportunity to build relationships with each winemaker. These relationships are very important – as we know, wine is emotional and the best wines are those that you will remember for not only the taste, but for the complete experience.
Wine Theory also offers additional services for those who love, collect, or want to learn more about wine. These include private wine events, wine list consultations, and private wine buying for both large collectors and those who just want to experience unique wines. Visit the individual pages on our website to learn more about these services.

About Ryan and Leah
We fell in love with wine in Portugal in 2006. For our 5th wedding anniversary, we visited the Douro River Valley and the wineries of that region. At the time we knew very little about wine, however, we quickly learned that this would develop into a deep passion for us both. Ryan holds an American Wine Specialist Certification and Leah has a WSET Diploma and Master-Level certification in Champagne.
