Success in a Bottle: Meet the Wine of the Month Club

A small retail store with an international following has called Monrovia home for nearly 20 years. The Wine of the Month Club is run by Paul Kalemkiarian, Jr., who took over the business from his father in 1990. 

The company started off as a side business when Paul's father bought a pharmacy that had a liquor store attached. Forty years later, the Wine of the Month Club has thousands of patrons, and has been able to withstand competition from the Internet by depending on loyal customers, research, and Paul's palate.

Paul -- who in the video answers the most common question, 'What do you do with the wine you don't like?' -- takes us through his store, his studio and his tasting room.
