Had some good wines, but way over priced. Very poor service, bartenders ignored us and never greeted us when coming in. Rude to my wife when asking about desserts.

My wife and I stopped in by way of a friends recommendation. We're glad we did. This was a great way to end our evening. The wine and beer selection is very good. The atmosphere was relaxed. We will definitely make this a more frequent stop.

I was really excited to stop in this wine bar after reading the reviews. Very disappointing. It is a cute old place, with nice outdoor seating, if it happens to be nice out. It just seemd uncomfortable when we walked in. Both my husband and I felt like we were an annoyance to the bar tender. No personality at all,... More

From the outside it looks like a little mom & pop country tavern. You get inside & there's a beautiful back bar, lovely white tablecloths, yummy chocolates & candies & nuts (not your regular type of bar snacks) on the bar for snacking & savoring with your wine. I love the place....lots of atmosphere, lots of wine choices.

A great place to enjoy a glass of wine from the dozens to chose from and a perfect place to just kick back.

Cute place, I feel like I just wanted more from someplace called a wine bar? Not sure what, but something is missing

Ben (the owner/bartender) keeps a great selection of wines on hand with a leaning toward the esoteric, and makes great cocktails as well. This is a great place for a drink and a conversation with the friendly regulars you'll find. Highly recommend stopping by if you're in Cedarburg. No food though, short the chocolates and pistacchios you'll always find on... More
