Like a great work of art, we believe wine is about creating an experience. We've assembled an amazing selection of wine and spirits from around the world with a focus on unique, artisan products that deliver exceptional value.
The Vine Arts staff are some of the most knowledgeable in the city and we love to deliver stellar service and education in an unpretentious environment. We're here to provide advice and recommendations on all aspects of wine and spirits. We specialize in making things simple and approachable for those just venturing in to the world of wine, and we're also game to get geeky with the most experienced of wine lovers as well.
Our wine selection is diverse in style and price point. Safe to say, we have something for everybody.
We focus on curating small production, artisan spirits of the highest quality from all over the globe.
The newest addition to Vine Arts repertoire. We are beer obsessed. Check out our rotating growler taps!

Jeff's love of wine and food was born out of his ten years in the restaurant industry where he worked every job imaginable, from Dishwasher to General Manager. As co-owner of Vine Arts Wine and Spirits Jeff's vision for the store is all about passion. He believes that people who come in through the front door should recognize our passion for our product and as a result find some of that same passion in themselves. When he is not at the store he is likely riding his bike, reading, or in the company of good friends.

After falling in love with wine while in Spain, Erik quickly changed careers, diving head first into his vinous studies. He is currently Assistant Manager at the shop and run's the Wine Club as well as many of our in house tastings (including our wine and music series). Beyond the shop he coordinates the wine list for Cafe Koi and writes as often as possible. Expect him to suggest Riesling or Gruner Veltliner as a pairing for virtually everything.
As the shop's jack-of-all-trades you can expect to learn as much about ballet or hunting from Aaron as you can about bourbon or wine. Although he has always enjoyed the finer things in life (beverages included) his jump into this industry came recently. He is a veteran of the fashion industry and is now implementing his above and beyond customer service in our shop.
Robyn is our in house beer ninja and helps to keep the shelves stock with unique and interesting brews from around the world. Having spent most of her childhood living on the beaches of Hawaii, Robyn is a natural sun worshipper who loves being near the water. When she's not geeking out on hop strains, Robyn can be found curled up with a good book and her pup Kona.
Katie "Muscles" Mordan is our resident fitness lover and client liaison. Katie has worked in the restaurant scene for years, nurturing her love for wine through classes with the International Sommelier Guild and WSET. When she's not dishing out wine tips, Katie can be found playing with her English Bulldog "Riblet" or jamming to a country tune.
Wine can be a daunting subject. There are thousands of different regions, hundreds of different grape varieties and even once you've mastered those, the wines change from year to year based on things like weather. We're here to help you.
Our Wine Club is designed to get six amazing bottles directly to you every month. For $150.00 we'll bring our selections to your house or office during the first week of every month. You'll receive both a written blurb about each wine and a link to a video with quick tasting notes and pairings.
If that wasn't enough to convince you to join we're sweetening the deal even more. If you convince a friend to sign up for three months you'll receive a bonus bottle. Additionally, we'll be replacing one lucky members bottle every month with something uber collectable - think of it like a boozy lottery. Finally, we'll be offering an enhanced case discount of 15%. As the club grows even more opportunities will arise including special members only tastings.

Our Vine Arts Beer Club features six unique beers, hand selected each month by our resident beer nerd Robyn. We’ll be hunting down some unique and interesting selections from around the world, in styles ranging from hop-bomb to session ale and everything in-between.
In addition to the beers themselves, club members will also receive a detailed write up with information on each of the beers and breweries. As the club grows we will find unique ways to thank our members from time to time including swag, members only tastings, first dibs on rare bottles and more.
There is no contract or obligation... you can sign up month by month, or purchase a set number of beer club releases. Beer club also makes for a great gift!
