A little bit about the owners of Vino per tutti. We, Tim and Beverly Christiansen, first came to Bozeman in 2000 when Tim accepted a teaching position at Montana State University. Beverly had just gotten her graduate degree in architecture and landed a job with a nice firm. We enjoyed the town and our life here, but the University of Arizona made me an offer that at the time seemed too good to pass up. However, after only a few years we found that we missed our friends and “our town” so much that I gave up my career in academics and Beverly closed the firm she had started so we could move home. We haven’t looked back since and are proud to be contributing to the vibrant downtown Bozeman retail scene that we talk about to everybody we meet. Beverly is now working for one of the top architecture firms in Bozeman and I never have to read another student paper or grade another exam (yet another reason that I don’t like scores much).
A third owner of Vino per tutti is Frank, our albino Samoyed. He is in the store a lot and is usually a "quiet" partner, although he does have his moments. He is generally sleeping, but will rouse himself to greet customers. Because of his albinism, he has been deaf since birth, but we still talk to him.
Neither of us are what might be considered “wine geeks.” We both enjoy wine, learning about wine, and most importantly, love helping our customers to find a product that they enjoy. Drinking wine is easy, finding great wine values can be hard work. We are more than happy to do all the hard work, so our customers can have a wonderful glass of wine.
