Stuart J’s Lens: Video Tales of Small Business – McKinney Wine Merchant

By Stuart J. Pearlman, TSB Staff

Through the technology of my handy FLIP video camera, I do short interviews with different small business owners in and around McKinney.

Meet Andy Doyle

I’m betting you would be surprised to learn that a guy who owns a wine store and tastes almost 40 wines every week does not drink.  Well here he is folks, Andy Doyle, proprietor of McKinney Wine Merchant, located right in our own historic downtown.  He is a pretty jovial fellow with an encyclopedic knowledge of the grape. 

Not surprisingly his roots are in Northern California but Andy made his way to McKinney in 1997 and has never looked back.  Along the way he has served his country and even taken a bit of direction in the world of comedy.  At the end of the day though, look to Andy’s prowess in the world of wines and not the stage!

By the way, if you ever struggled describing the taste of something, Andy can give you a vocabulary lesson.  Click on the little screen under the word “Video” below to witness for yourself the charm of Andy Doyle.

If you think you have a story to tell send me an email at and tell me why you should be the focus of Stuart J’s Lens.

Here are some of the rules:
● Your business does not need to be an advertiser on (Although if you are reading this, you can already appreciate that TSB is the place to go to reach thousands of people like yourself who are interested in the goings-on in McKinney.)
● The objective is to be serious about small business in and around McKinney but in a fun way.  If not full of personality, (fun, charming, quirky….), you will not make the cut. (Note:  I stole that line from “Chopped”!)
● This personality could stem from what drove you to a particular business, what your strangest/funniest business experience has been or what we “really need to know” that we probably would not have guessed.  Boring, staid, “we make widgets and want people to come buy those widgets” stories will not be featured.
● Did I mention you don’t have to pay to play?  The cost of entry is simply a story the folks in McKinney would enjoy hearing.
