About Us

  David & Nancy Hastings

Founder's of Florida Wine & Spirits

     David and Nancy Hastings moved to Florida in 1999 at the start of a growth period in Brevard County.  The areas surrounding Suntree and Viera were starting to be developed and opportunities were beginning to surface.  David and Nancy aspired to start their own business and decided to create a business plan.  David completed a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Economics and had fifteen years of experience in the construction industry. Nancy held an Associate of Arts in Business and had eight years of prior experience in the Banking Industry.  An idea for a unique ‘Wine & Spirits” store was a perfect fit.  David’s family had been in the retail spirits business in Connecticut.  They owned and operated the H&B Package Stores for nine years.  Building on the H & B concept, the idea for Florida Wine & Spirits came to life. The project would include an interior design with arched-marble brick walls, hand-crafted maple wine racks, and a Humidor that reflects a Spanish cedar walk-in, where cigar enthusiasts could enjoy their selection of cigars.  Here, David’s past experience in the construction industry came in handy. He not only designed the interior of the store, but also completed the build out of the space. Florida Wine & Spirits opened on August 29, 2005.  That same year another opportunity arose; a Walgreen’s liquor store became available. David and Nancy decided to expand their new business and the plans for a second store fell into place. Florida Wine & Spirits - Palm Bay opened on December 16, 2005.

     David and Nancy are always looking for new ideas to add to the experience at Florida Wine and Spirits.  They have become members of numerous Dining Clubs.  From these experiences they created events such as Single Malt Scotch tasting classes, Wine-tasting classes and complimentary social events that have all been popular and enjoyed by their customers.  David and Nancy strive for exceptional customer service and like to add perks to the experience.  Florida Wine & Spirits offers custom bottle labels during the holidays, free gift wrap all year round, and our “Rewards Program”.  These are just a few examples of how David and Nancy take their business to the next level. 

     David and Nancy have enjoyed the experience of working in the retail wine and spirits industry and have had the opportunity to meet legendary wine makers and directors from prestigious wineries, such as Silver Oak, Fife Vineyards, Wynn’s Estate, Markham & Hartford, as well as influential authors Andrea Immer-Robinson and Karen MacNeil.  Meeting Andrea and Karen was especially exciting, as David and Nancy had enjoyed reading their books in the past. 

     David & Nancy’s mission is to give the best customer service in the Wine & Spirits industry and continually implement innovative ideas into the business.  They would like to give a warm “Thank you” to their customers for their dedication and support to the stores.  They truly appreciate your business…
