Locally owned by PJ Singh, Folsom Wine & Spirits has had a great deal of success at its longtime location in the Folsom Pavilions, at 6606 Folsom-Auburn Road.  According to Singh, the second location was chosen to better serve the other side of Folsom, and many of the newer residential communities that are accessible off of East Bidwell, Blue Ravine and other main roadways. 

“This new site is on the border of new Folsom,” Singh said in an earlier interview shortly after obtaining the new space. “We wanted to get more exposure and we had a lot of customers that were having trouble getting to our current location from the other side of town.”
