#237 – The Little Wine Shop in Avondale Estates – Grand Opening Tonight – Thursday, September 30, 2010
Looking for a locally-owned wine shop where you can get personalized attention, experience unique wine tastings, and feel like a true VIP?
The Little Wine Shop in Avondale Estates is just the place. It’s the perfect antidote to the supersized wine stores that are popping up everywhere, where you are just another face in the crowd. Owner Rebecca Hadj Taieb and Certified Wine Specialist Marty Shaver invite you to join them for their grand opening celebration tonight – Thursday, September 30, 2010 from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM – to enjoy wine tastings, Holeman and Finch breads, artisan cheeses and a lot of fun!
The Little Wine Shop offers a carefully selected and eclectic selection of wines from around the globe – during my visit, I found a number of Côtes du Rhône wines (those of you who know me know the region is a particular favorite of mine!) that I hadn’t tried before – always a plus for me! At a recent “Insider’s Event” I learned from Rebecca that “our inventory has 50% of the bottles priced from 9.99 to 15.99 and 35% 15.99 to 20.99. The rest will be champages, sparkling wines and ports usually over the $20 price range.” They also offer artisan breads, cheeses, meats and specialty gift items, as well as a wine club and exclusive wine tastings. The shop – which is a very nicely renovated space that was originally a hardware store in the early 1900s – is also available for rental for private events. It’s a beautifully simple design – industrial but still cozy, chic and modern – I would definitely love to hold an event there!
The Little Wine Shop is open Tuesday through Thursday from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM, Friday and Saturday from 10:00 AM until 9:00 PM, and closed Sundays and Mondays. They will have regular Saturday wine tastings, starting around noon each week with bread and cheese pairings.
If you enjoy personal service and the feeling of a neighborhood shop, I urge you to check out The Little Wine Shop – if not for the Grand Opening celebration tonight, then sometime soon!
