Our Philosophy

Like a great work of art, we believe wine is about creating an experience. We've assembled an amazing selection of wine, beer, spirits, bitters and specialty cocktail ingredients 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.

Wine

Our wine selection is diverse in style and price point. Safe to say, we have something for everybody. 

Spirits

We focus on curating small production, artisan spirits of the highest quality from all over the globe. 

Beer

We carry a selection of craft beer in bottle, can and on growler fill at both locations!

Jeff

JEFF JAMIESON

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.
