Food & Wine

In addition to our own practices, we intentionally partner with mindful producers making the wine that you sip on!​

​

  • Farming Practices: Organic, Sustainable, Biodynamic
    Hint: You will see this key on the top of our wine menu!

     

  • Small-lot, small production wineries

  • Family-owned

  • Fair labor practices
     

We invested in a Le Verre de Vin wine preservation system to keep our wine fresh for as long as possible, reducing unnecessary waste + offer high-quality keg wine options to greatly reduce packaging.

​​

Our food menu is also curated to align with these values:

​

  • Support local producers

  • Use seasonal ingredients

  • Source Organic ingredients when possible

  • Partner with Local CSA (Fox & Farm) at The Vine Shop

​

Some of the local food producers we partner with:

Widmer's Cheese Cellars

Red Table Meat Co.

La Quercia

Ames Farm

Great Harvest Bread Co.

Fiddlehead Farm
