the Wine Shop…
For starters, we are open during normal business hours as a wine retail shop. We have hundreds of wines from around the world waiting for thirsty customers to take home and enjoy! And because it’s always nice to try before you buy – there are always over 30 wines open and ready for you to taste, just to make sure it’s what you are in the mood for.
But it’s not that simple – we also offer our customers the opportunity to join our “E-Wine” club. It’s probably the most convenient and exciting way to buy wine in all of the midlands! Here’s how it works….we send out a weekly email with all of our cool wine discoveries for the week – everything from bargain blowouts to special high end closeouts. You simply reply to the email with your order, we pack it up and you pick it up at your convenience! Our special “Mystery Cases” are our most popular option – just $90 for a full case of wine! We pick some, you pick some, everyone wins! If you would like to be added to your E-Wine club, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you signed up!

We should also mention our Giant Wine Sale & Tasting every other Saturday! From 12-2pm, we open our doors and bottles giving you the ultimate Saturday afternoon experience. We always have at least 30 wines open for you to taste, and marked down at the lowest prices possible for you to custom build a case (or two!). Best part – this event is free, that is if you buy at least two bottles!
the Wine Bar…
At 5pm our doors open to the hungry, as well as thirsty! We offer a full menu of snacks, pizzas, small plates and desserts all perfect for sharing. We also offer a nightly three-course menu for $22, giving you the flexibility to pick your own courses. And of course, there is a full wine list ready for you to explore food and wine pairings, or a selection of beers if that’s what you are in to. Our friendly staff is always ready to answer your questions regarding the food, wine, beer and retail purchases!
Both the food and wine menus are available by clicking on the pages above.
Also make sure to check out our Upcoming Events page to catch all of our weekly specials and tastings!
