In finding yourself in an often-animated conversation about Wines, Champagnes, Spirits or Groceries with Moreno you are soon aware of his vast experience, knowledge and passion for his business. Moreno is never lost for words when it comes to explaining a particular wine, taste experience, the area where it is grown or his personal experience of meeting the family who own the particular vineyard. Born into the business, Moreno has been working at The Re Store from his early childhood years.
After turning 18 and still completing his studies, Nonno shipped Moreno from the Northbridge Store, where his Mother, Father and Brother, worked, to the Leederville Store to learn the relatively new operations of the alcohol branch of the family business. Under the firm hand of his Uncle Augusto, a young, timid Moreno started at Oxford Street, head down with a broom in hand. Dutifully he did what his Nonno asked and thanks to the foresight of his Grandfather, Moreno learned every aspect of the running of Re Store Leederville from Liquor to the Deli and Groceries helping transform it to the jewel it is today.
Under Moreno’s leadership, Re Store Leederville has become one of the leading independent liquor stores in the state. Always seeking to enrich and exceed the experience and expectation of The Re Store customer Moreno and his staff seek out excellent everyday drinking wines to the rarer of drops. From Champagnes and Prosecco’s to Brunello, Barolo’s, Bordeaux’s or Burgundy’s, a walk through the ample isles should satisfy your curiosity. Should you be lucky enough to have a guided tour of the downstairs cellar you will find yourself in an Aladdin’s cave of fine liquor.
Moreno will always take the time to talk to customers, recommend a suitable bottle for a dinner party, gift or something special to store in your cellar. Be sure drop in and bend his ear, challenge him, he will talk for hours.
