Wines by Jennifer - A Global Wine Boutique


Serving wine lovers (and beer and spirits lovers, too!) everywhere since 2003 from our picturesque location in historic downtown Parkville, MO, Wines by Jennifer is now one of Kansas City's premiere entertainment destinations.

We're not your ordinary wine merchant...

Sure, we know you have lots of choices when it comes to wine. That's precisely why we work so hard to make sure that your visit to Wines by Jennifer will be a unique customer experience, because we believe we're not really in the wine business - we're in the people business.

While it's true that we have a large and diverse selection of quality wines carefully chosen from the finest small boutique wineries around the world, and a beautiful, spacious facility with faux-finished theme rooms representing each of the world's major wine regions, it's our friendly and knowledgeable staff of wine enthusiasts always at your service that makes the difference.

Part wine shop, part wine bar, all fun!

Visitors to our shoppe have the opportunity to sample wines in our Tasting Room all day Tuesday through Saturday just as if you were in wine country, but even better because at Wines by Jennifer you have all the wines of the world in one location. Flights of wine (small samples) based on different weekly themes are available in our Tasting Room, providing you with a fun and inexpensive way to quickly expand your wine horizons. Wine by the glass and by the bottle are also available for consumption at the shoppe, or to carry out for enjoyment in your own home.

What's wine without food?

Wines by Jennifer also features specialty foods such as cheeses (including Missouri's own Osceola Cheese Company), local fresh breads, organic olive oils, crackers, fresh fruit, meats, a different special appetizer each week to pair with the weekly Tasting Room wines, and many other food items that complement wine and enhance the wine-tasting experience.

In addition, we offer various wine accessories such as wine racks, specialty wine glasses and decanters, wine openers, unique wine and cheese glass plates, wine charms, wine journals, and much, much more.

The perfect place for your private party or special event!

Our spacious three-story facility has seating throughout, so no matter the size of your party, we can handle it with ease. In addition to our themed wine region rooms and Art Gallery inside, we also have plenty of outdoor seating thanks to three outdoor decks and a beautifully decorated Wine Garden.

Wines by Jennifer has hosted weddings and wedding receptions, anniversary celebrations, bridal showers, birthday parties and business gatherings, just to name a few. Private catering on- or off-premise is also available, so contact us to see how we can help make your next event a memorable one.

Wines by Jennifer's Bridal Registry ServiceWhen it comes to nuptials, we've literally done it all at Wines by Jennifer.

Thank you again for everything and please pass on our thanks and appreciation to your staff!

It's been a while since I've been in, but I have to say...I had the BEST bridal shower at your place! My friends had a great time and they said it was the most unique and fun bridal shower they had ever been to.

Thanks for a great event and hope to see you soon!

We were in the shop doing a tasting recently and Daniel was pouring in the tasting room. Holy cow, he's good! So professional, knowledgeable and personable! We know he's a great guy, but had never had him in the tasting room before - anyway, just wanted to let you know what a great job he did - we had a great time (as always!).

Jennifer Miller

I wanted to write to thank you and the staff at Wines by Jennifer for the wonderful evening the NAAB group had on August 20. I heard good feedback from several of our members. I think they were happy to be there.

From the time we arrived, the staff was very professional and it was evident they have done this a time or two! Even though I didn't participate in a tasting, I was able to learn a few things from the presentations. Don was very knowledgeable. The evening flowed quite well, the food was excellent and I could relax, knowing we were in good hands.

I will happily recommend your establishment to anyone. In fact, I hope to bring my parents there sometime in the future.

Thanks again for your hospitality!

Warm regards,

Aloha Jennifer,

Before I moved to Hawaii in November of 2004, I had a few visits and events at WBJ. One of our visits, in addition to the usual tastings, was my big 50th birthday limo stop to have tastings and food treats, and we even spent our last night in KC with our friends at Wines by Jennifer. We knew how much we would miss it, so much that everyone let us take their WBJ glasses with us to Hawaii. We still use them as our "daily" wine glasses.

Mahalo for providing many fun times!

Laurie Murphy

I am so excited to find Wines by Jennifer online today! I love Parkville!! I am hoping I can have my daughter's first baby shower there, and am looking forward to having wine, cheeses, breads, etc!


Connie Wheatley
Gladstone, MO

My wife and I are huge fans of WBJ. The concept, place, newsletters, etc. all make up a very unique idea that everyone we have brought in has absolutely loved.

I think the most impressive/attractive thing about your shoppe is that it is obvious to customers that it is a passion for your team. Wine lovers relate to this because they tend to also be a pretty passionate bunch.

With kind regards,

David Meresak

Don & Jennifer,

You have a lovely place!

I came to celebrate a birthday with friends tonight. We enjoyed ourselves and hope to come again soon.

Thanks for your personal care and attention.

My wife and I stopped by Friday afternoon on our way to a Royals game. Thanks for your help in getting there, and the parking pass was great.

Thanks to Don and Jennifer for selecting a Vinho Verde and showing us around. We will be back next time in town.

Best Regards,

We thought about Zona Rosa, but decided on Wines by Jennifer instead - great decision! The quiet and tranquil setting allowed my wife and I to re-connect after a hectic week.

Stephen and Angie Smith

My husband I were there on Saturday night - just in the nick of time to get a wine tasting and really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks for the nice start to the evening - we both commented on how terrific everyone was that worked there and that made all the difference - you all were so happy with what you were doing and it definitely made us want to come back.

Also, the tip about Cafe des Amis - we loved it! Thank you.


Kate Gonzales

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for all of your help coordinating Steve's birthday celebration. You and your staff went above and beyond any of my expectations.

Your shop provided a fun and unique venue that was enjoyed by all of the guests. Your wine picks for the party were perfect and the food was fabulous.

Again, my many, many thanks for making Steve's birthday truly unforgettable.

Thanks again!

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful event for the Iowa State University Alumni Association Club of Kansas City at Wines by Jennifer. Everyone had a fabulous time!

I had numerous alumni tell me this was their favorite event for an ISU outing in K.C. and asked that we make it an annual event. So, you'll probably be seeing us again soon!

Thanks again!

Theresa Uchytil-Etler

Dear All,

Thank you for being our extended family. You always make us feel welcome! We do so enjoy our time tasting wines and visiting with all of you. I guess you are like our "Cheers" - a place we like to go where everyone knows your name.

CJ & Scott Garrett
Parkville, MO

Wonderful! What a neat place.

Sean Viehmann

Everyone at WBJ is warm and welcoming. They have a way of putting even the most inexperienced taster at ease. We look forward to our next visit and our next great bottle of wine.

Jamie Diefendorf

Fun! Great conversation with friends over a wide selection of wine. Don shared great wine knowledge as well as European travel stories. Enjoyed the evening!

Kelly Martin

P.S. Loved the Habenero cheese - yum!!

Wines by Jennifer is great for a quiet night for two or for a group of friends.

It is our gift to ourselves once a week to enjoy a wine tasting and then retreat to one of the many cozy rooms for a bottle of wine and tasty cheeses! Thank you!

Justin & Stacy Beach

One of my best friends and I got to reconnect our friendship on the patio. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

Tiffany Harris

Being a "self-proclaimed wine connoisseur," I am always thrilled during and after each visit to WBJ. She has a wonderful selection of wines and great choices for appetizers.

As a recipient of her emails, I find them extremely enlightening and written in layman's terms.

Jennifer and her staff are always fun, attentive, and genuinely focused on seeing that you have a fantastic experience.

Carol Baughman

Super great wine, along with terrific service!

Jim Lee

Hi Don & Jennifer,

Thank you so much for the wonderful Oktoberfest event. It was a perfect and special day!

We have told many people about your adventures, and how nice it is to have someone travel for you, taste the wine, and then bring it back for us to taste while teaching us at the same time. How many places have this advantage?!

Again, it was a great day for us and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you!

Wanda & Erik Brokaw
Blue Springs, MO

We have gone to Wines by Jennifer on several occasions and each time it is a refreshing break from the daily grind. On one occasion, a lady asked me if I was on vacation because I looked so refreshed!

Thanks, Jennifer!

Becky Kathrens


We look forward to seeing you soon at Wines by Jennifer!
