However glamorous the thought of opening a wine bar may seem, you have a long road ahead of you if you want to operate a thriving business. Because you are dealing with a specialty bar that emphasizes a particular product, namely wine, you will have to develop a thorough grasp of your niche. Your patrons will expect this. That is where your business plan comes in: not only can it help you secure funding, but it will help you define your concept. Without a solid plan, your elegant wine bar might end up turning into a regular bar or pub.

Since opening, our goal has been to provide a comfortable place to drink great wine and eat food that is as good as the wine, and then, if the wine is to your liking, to be able to buy some and take it home. We want wines that are usually a challenge to find: reflective of their origin, expressive of the vineyard and the vintage and the traditions of their region, wines that are not a commodity, but limited and handmade, wines of great provenance and flavor.
For us, the fun is in finding the wines, sourcing and making the delicious, wholesome food, and then putting it all together so when our guests walk through the door, night after day, there is something here for them that is real, that satisfies their thirst for the soulful, the delicious, and the well made.
