Gary Fisch’s passion for the wine and spirits industry has been the driving force for his 30 years of success. His dedication for providing extraordinary customer service, as well as inspiring and training his staff and fellow wine consumers, has been recognized by national and international media, including Fox Business News, CNN, CNBC, The New York Times, Market Watch, New Jersey Monthly magazine, The Star-Ledger, and USA Today.
Following the success of the original Gary’s Wine & Marketplace, which opened in Madison, New Jersey in 1987, Gary launched the equally sophisticated, customer-focused, and price-driven Gary’s Wine & Marketplace of Bernardsville in 2001. As the market for wine, spirits, beer and gourmet foods continued to expand and evolve, so did Gary’s enterprise. In April 2008, the flagship store opened in Wayne, New Jersey. The largest store to date, Gary’s Wine & Marketplace of Wayne offers one of the largest selections of wine, beer & spirits in the country, a temperature-controlled wine room, and an expanded specialty and gourmet foods marketplace. In December 2017, Gary’s in Closter, NJ opened, offering Gary’s signature retail experience—always in an inviting and customer-friendly atmosphere.
Gary’s easy-to-access website, GarysWine.com, provides an on-line shopping experience that is easy, enjoyable, and affordable. And with shipping to 37 states throughout the country, GarysWine.com serves as an extension of the ‘Gary’s experience” further enhanced by our Mobile App.
The newest addition to Gary’s Wine and Marketplace is the Gary’s Napa Valley store opened in October, 2019. Gary’s Napa Valley location features more than 600 labels focusing primarily on Napa Valley wines and features the largest and most diverse selection of hand-selected imports in the area. Gary’s also carries more than 250 spirits and beer products and well more than 200 cheeses and other specialty local and imported food items well as coffee and breakfast items, salads, sandwiches, charcuterie, olive oil and fresh-baked bread. Gary’s Napa Valley also provides an entirely new element for Gary’s Wine & Marketplace stores – a concierge service that can facilitate winery visits, restaurant reservations, hotel bookings, and more.
In an ongoing mission to de-mystify the wine tasting and buying experience for their clientele, Gary and his staff extensively travel the world’s wine regions to expand their knowledge and seek out exceptional products, including Gary’s own line of private label GF Wines—Go Figure, Going Forward, Grand Finale and Fisch—all crafted by industry-leading winemakers to bring Gary’s clientele stellar wines that over deliver on price and quality.
