Todd (Maxwell) and Paula (Margaret) relocated to Asheville from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with the goal of opening a combination retail wine store and wine bar. After working at a small, boutique wine store in Milwaukee, Paula envisioned a retail space where not only a well-curated selection of wines were sold, but also a small bar/lounge area where many of the lesser known, less popular wines could be introduced to and discovered by customers While we’re not averse to a luscious Cab or ethereal Pinot Noir, at Margaret & Maxwell, we put an emphasis on educating people about all types wine in an inviting and fun atmosphere. After all, drinking wine should be a pleasurable experience!
Paula holds a Level 3 Advanced Certificate from Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET). Todd worked for MillerCoors for over 30 years.
