“What a cool shop!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We stopped in and Don, one of the owners, gave us a run down of the business. A great place with many different wines. We did a wine tasting. Also, they have a ton of great craft beer. Each room is dedicated to a different wine region/country. Art Gallery downstairs.

“A little gem in Parkville”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Wines by Jennifer is an excellent place to enjoy a delicious glass of wine and relax. Owners Jennifer and Don really know their wines. While they do carry high end, expensive bottles from all over the world, they put a lot of effort into finding wines that taste fabulous and are in the price range of $20-$40 a bottle. Jennifer and Don can help you pick out vintages that make excellent gifts, especially if it's for a wine connoisseur.
The shop is an old 3 story house with lots of character. There is an enclosed back deck that is open when weather permits. Throughout the shop they have arranged lounge areas that, amazingly, allow for private conversation while still being in the middle of the stores hustle and bustle. We enjoyed sitting upstairs in the 'piano nook', people watching those outside through the window and just hanging out with friends. They always have servers standing by to refill your glass or bring you more snacks.
They have a menu with fruits, cheeses and other light snacks that varies slightly from week to weak. The shop sells everything from interesting crackers to packaged cheeses (including local artisans), jellies, spice rubs and marinades, wine glasses and even wine-themed t-shirts. Try the morel infused white cheese they sell from their cooler. Genius. They also stock artisan style beers from all over the world that are of all flavors and alcohol levels.
In the basement, the walls and shelves are adorned with arts and crafts from local artisans. All of them are for sale and the artist(s) change every few months.
It's a very relaxing atmosphere. We love the place.
