Wine lovers with an entrepreneurial spirit may find their calling is opening their own wine shop. In this case, you can be independent and do your own thing, or buy into an existing wine store chain. If you own a wine shop, it's your call on what kinds of wines you carry and how you display them, which, of course, requires lots of personal research. A typical wine shop also carries wine accessories, and some even incorporate a small gourmet shop with a selection of cheeses, breads and olive oils. Most shops also offer tastings and classes on a regular basis to introduce people to wine, and more importantly, to your business.
