If you like wine, you have to love this place. Got $20? Martin will find you a great bottle of white, red, rosé - whatever you desire. Like understanding wine? He knows the whole selection deeply and personally, and can explain why each one is different or might be worth trying. Don't know Jack about wine? Martin will explain them to you, take your suggestions, and give you something fantastic. Turns out my wife DOES like red wine, if I can ask Martin for help in finding the right one. Do you like clubs and feeling exclusive? Great! There's a wine club to get discounts, and it gives you a reason to stop by every month! Seriously, you have to love that there's a place in Helena where a gentleman as passionate about wine as Martin will walk you through an interesting and deeply curated selection. Wines from rare grape cultivars, wines from weird regions, wines from Montana, wines with a totally different flavor profile than you'd expect - he's got it all. If you like wine...

Martin is an absolute legend in Helena! 100% recommend stopping by for some wine and a good conversation. He went above & beyond to educate us on some obscure old world wines that are unique to his shop. We ended up buying a mixed case and every bottle so far has been a smash hit! He even was kind enough to pull out a map and show us his favorite hikes in Glacier NP. He has a good heart and is refreshing to hear his honest opinion on all his wines. Be back soon!

I don't know much about wine, so Martin has been very helpful with selecting a great wine for the occasion.

About us

Covid-19 precautions 
* We are asking to minimize cash transactions.  
#Delivery for your wine now in Helena only.

"Martin Richard and Steven Aagenes operate Martin's Wines in downtown Helena, Montana.  
Martin has been selecting, serving, and selling wine for over 40 years, both in restaurants and at  retail. Steven has been tasting wine with Martin for almost 30 years. Steven and Martin have even blended their own wine, with Yellowstone Cellars of Billings. 

We do not buy wine from reviews. We buy wines by tasting them. When we find one we like, we buy it and offer it to you. 

We are especially happy to find a wine from an unknown grape or unappreciated region. Such wines are inevitably good values, and always have a story behind them. 

We invite you to visit our store, and share our wine and their stories."

Wine Club

About our wine club...
Do you live in or near Helena? Do you find that you spend at least $25 a month on wine?
If so, you should definitely join our wine club! Here's how it works.
What you get:
A a member of our wine club, you get a 10% discount on all of our wines, on our Handmade-in- Helena chocolates, and on our gift bags and cards.
As a member, you also get our email newsletter, which lets you know about tastings and other special events.
We also track all your purchases! If you forget the name of that lovely red you enjoyed a couple of months ago, we can hunt it down for you.
Note that we do NOT force you to buy a "wine of the month." Your discount applies to every wine in our store!
How to join:
When you decide to join, you buy some wine on your credit card and fill out our form (Want to fill it out right now? Here ya go! Bring it in at your convenience.) That's it! On the first day of the month, we will bill your credit card $25 dollars.
ALL of your $25 goes toward wine. We do not charge dues or membership fees of any sort. Your $25 simply pays ahead for your next bottle or two.
You don't lose it if you don't use it. We set up an account for you in our POS system, and credit that account with $25 when we charge your card on the first of the month. If you do not use all of your credit in any given month, your credit simply rolls over to the next month. If you choose, you may let that accumulate. (We have members who are snowbirds who do exactly that.)
The not-so-bad news:
Members do not get a further discount on case purchases. (A case is 12 bottles.) But if you are interested in buying by the case, let's chat! Sometimes we can work out discounts with suppliers on multi-case purchases.
We do ask that you try our club for at least three months. After that you may cancel at any time. If you are a species of snowbird, you may halt your membership when you migrate and renew it on your return; or you may let your credit accumulate. It's your choice.
How to leave:
It's our job to make you happy. If you join and after three months you decide our club does not work for you, no hard feelings, we still want to be your friends: we just stop the monthly billing. You can, if you wish, continue to get our newsletter, and we will continue to track your purchases.
And of course, you do not lose any credit which exists in your account at that time. In fact, you do not lose your 10% discount until that credit is gone. We still want to help you find good wines to enjoy.

There! That's how our club works. We hope it works for you.  Call now and set it up!
