About

WELCOME TO

Dom Beijos is truly an homage to Melissa’s Portuguese roots. Though there isn’t an exact translation to English, Beijos means kiss and embodies a feeling of passion for all things. Big impassioned kisses are the things that make the world a better place and provide a sense of peace and happiness. Both Melissa and Justin have an attachment to their neighborhood and the shop is a gift to those who welcomed them and a chance to create a space for them as a community.

MELISSA AND JUSTIN

FOUNDERS AND OWNERS OF DOM BEIJOS

“It was a blessing to be able to spend so many summers in Portugal growing up. Family, food, travel, art, wine… It was all a part of that experience.
Most of all there is a sense of being Portuguese that I came to understand and prize. It means being proud, working hard, and most of all appreciating every morsal that life has to offer. When you visit with a friend you feel that you are at home, and everyone, no matter how old, distant or different, made you feel that you were family.”
– Melissa
“Since Melissa and I met, we’ve always prioritized creating inviting environments for entertainment in our homes.   We wanted our store to have that same feel so as to create a great place for the mutual learning and understanding of both the wines and our neighborhood. “
– Justin
