The Red Dog Difference
Wine and Spirit shoppers in Franklin, Tennessee, have a lot of choices. We are honored to we see so many familiar faces at Red Dog. We’ve been told that they come back for three reasons: Staff, Selection, and our emphasis on Education.
When you shop at Red Dog, you get full access to Team Red Dog. We’re biased, but the Team is made up of some pretty great folks. We hear that sentiment time and time again from our customers who know them by name and come back for Wine, Spirits, and Beer advice.
The key to our Team is that, while each and every member can help you with all of your beverage needs, team members bring their unique tasting preferences and specific areas of beverage expertise. If you’re a Beer lover and you shop Red Dog, you know James. If you love Italian Wines, chances are you and Kevin are buds. Old World Wines? Jon is your personal Sommelier. Got a hankering for a unique cocktail? Brian will knock your socks off with his innovative ideas. And for our Whiskey lovers, Bard, is the man. Want to know more about the Red Dog Team?

Red Dog delivers great value and quality with a range of options to meet a wide variety of tastes and budgets. Our selection is vast with an emphasis on value and quality and is one of the largest in Franklin, TN. We’re stocked with more than 1,700 Wines, 300 plus Whiskies, 200 plus High Gravity Beers, and a wide range of vodka, gin and other spirits. We are passionate about keeping these selections current and interesting.
We provide quality products that go beyond ratings across price points (though you’ll find many a well rated Wine and spirit at Red Dog). Our approach to choosing our Wine, Spirits, and Beer selection is a little bit different and a lot more time consuming than that of some other stores. But our method was wholly designed with our customers in mind. We try more products than you could imagine and do a lot of research. Each new product is taste tested and approved by Team Red Dog, the folks that know what our customers are looking for.
We are proud to work with distributors to usher in new products, some of which start out exclusive to Red Dog before being picked up elsewhere. If you don’t see something on our shelves, ask and ye shall receive. We’ll find out if it’s available in middle Tennessee and happily order it for you.
Whether you browse at your own pace or talk to our staff, you’re bound to leave Red Dog knowing a little bit more than you did before you came into the store. We’ve designed our store in a way that’s clutter free and easy to browse at your own pace. With more than 1,700 Wines, there are a lot of options. So we give you tools to learn about many of our Wines while you browse. We have Wine tags designed with you in mind to arm you with information. We include the Wine’s producer, varietal, vintage, tasting notes, ratings, and food pairing ideas. And if the Wine is made with Green principles, you’ll see the “Green Dog Approved” seal on the information card.
Our Team makes group decisions about what Wine, Spirits, and High Gravity Beer you see on our shelves. And they are ready and willing to discuss our products. You can pop in and ask what’s new, what to pair with a specific meal, or what to use in a cocktail. The Team will help you find the perfect product for your needs.
We also have a tasting bar that gives you the chance to try before you buy. We have something to taste just about every night — Beer tastings every Thursday night and weekend tastings on Friday and Saturdays. We also host tastings with special guests who make and distribute our products. We provide information about these tastings each week via e-mail and Facebook.
