Owner description: “To take wine into our mouths is to savor a droplet of the river of human history” -Clifton Fadiman What is behind The Cellar Door? The cellar door is the keeper of treasures; a hideaway for heirlooms and things touched by age and memory. Things you don’t find anywhere else. Wine is the draught of history. Wine brings friends together at the dinner table and brightens the spirit. Wine, through a sense of companionship, brings people closer. In the words of Homer, “Wine can of their wits the wise beguile, Make the sage frolic, and the serious smile.” At The Cellar Door we welcome you with a smile on our faces and a glass in hand, inviting you in to a friendly place where you can sample beautiful wines from around the world, sit and enjoy a glass, and bring home a bottle to share with family and friends. We invite you to go behind our cellar door to discover a cozy den of wonderful wines presented in a comfortable, inviting space. A space where, perhaps, you will find more than wine. Perhaps you will find new friends. “Come with me while the wine shop is still open. We are dizzy with meeting each other.” -Jalaluddin Rumi

“Quite a find”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

The owner was very friendly and helped select a bottle of wine. There is not a large selection. She was nice to our dog. Packaged the bottle nicely.

“The Best Wine Selection in the area.”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

What's not to like. I am a regular customer here. They have a great wine selection, friendly atmosphere, knowledgable staff, a fun regular crowd and innovative wine tastings. One of the best times to visit is either the 1st Friday wine tasting or the Yappy Hour wine tasting on the 3rd Friday. Every dog owner in town comes to show off the prized pet and share a great glass of wine or two. Great fun, wonder wine and friendly crowed.

“Excellent.”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Cozy little wine bar where we spent a quiet low Sunday late afternoon. Friendly service. Far better than nearby tacky bars.
