About The Little Wine Shoppe

If you haven’t heard of The Little Wine Shoppe in Hattiesburg, that may be because they just opened recently. After a successful June grand opening, they’ve become the literal toast of the town.

They offer rare wines—and up to three daily tastings per customer. Preview their daily tasting selection schedule and see their limited-time deals on their Facebook page.

Mystery #WineWednesday

Speaking of tastings! The Little Wine Shoppe holds a Mystery #WineWednesday event on, you guessed it, Wednesdays. It runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The protocols? Guess a mystery wine’s grape variety and country correctly. Then, if you do, you’ll get 10 percent off your next bottle of wine!


Mystery #WineWednesday isn’t the only tasting event the shop holds! They also have twice monthly tastings—and you can book your tickets here. Those events typically run from an hour to an hour-and-a-half.

They include five wines, as well as a discussion with The Little Wine Shoppe owner Christen Raanes. Raanes has an Advanced WSET, which is “an advanced level qualification for professionals working in the wine industry and for wine enthusiasts,” according to the Wine Spirit and Education Trust website.

Or, if you want to plan a special event, like a birthday or bridal shower, they also hold private tastings. You and up to nine others can book a tasting during or after hours. While it’s free to schedule, they recommend buying a bottle per guest, as well as the bottles tried in the tasting. Call (601) 520-8592 or email [email protected] for details.
