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

“Excellent atmosphere, always have an enjoyable time here”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Always very welcomed by Christina and Eric. This is a great place to enjoy and learn about wine. The atmosphere is excellent. Wine Tasting evenings are always varied providing knowledge on new wines are are always fun. Food is paired with wines, most of the food made by Christina herself, and very yummy it is! Yappy Hour is another lovely relaxing evening, wine accompanied by beautiful dogs. You don't have to wait for these monthly events, if you just want a glass of wine you're sure to enjoy the atmosphere at anytime. Anyone visiting Mount Dora should certainly make a point of stopping in, and if so, you will most certainly be returning.

“The Best Stop in Mt. Dora !!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is the best spot in Mt. Dora. It is great to find a place where everyone is welcome and no matter who you are they treat you like family. The wine tastings are a great chance to make new friends and taste excellent wines. Christina and Eric are very knowledgeable and always willing to help you make the right choice.
Stop in and say "Hi!" to the kids 'Wrigley and Ramey'
It is a must do when in MT. Dora

“People and Pet friendly”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Looks are deceiving when you enter the shop until ypu realize there is a small bar and tables in the back. Christine (the owner) remodeled the shop and it has a cozy, welcoming feeling. Off in a corner, her two mini doxies welcome you and gratefully accept treats, if offered. You're welcome to have a glass or a bottle, selection is varied and excellent. Located on 4th, just up the corner from Donnelly St, it's a welcome oasis. Wine tasting evenings and the "Yappy Hour" add to the enjoyment.

“Just Outstanding!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

The staff is wonderful! They found out my likes and dislikes and made sure I found a new favorite (or two...maybe 3) wine! Great place to relax after a hard day!!!
