Really great vibe in Morgantown . Great selection of wine, super cheese plate. Tapas style selections that all looked inviting. I will go back to try some more. Tip. It's less costly to order some bottles of wine if you all like the same wine. Also nice selection of beer

The Wine Bar at Vintner Valley at the bottom of the hill on Burroughs just off Collins Ferry is definitely one of the most interesting new spots in Morgantown, and one of the growing number of interesting new locations to eat and drink in the Suncrest area.

We've been there several times and the service and overall quality of the experience have been excellent each time.
The selection of wines is broad and ranges from (relatively) inexpensive to pricey, and reds, whites, a few blushes and sparkling wines are available by the glass or the bottle. The wait staff have helpfully suggested when a bottle would be less expensive than individual glasses.
Really can't say too much about the food since we've only had pizzas (which were excellent with wine). One food note: there is an appetizer, <i>salsa de parmigiano</i> spread, consisting of crumbled parmesan cheesy bits in a garlic sauce served with toasts which is truly excellent with a glass of wine. The olive plate appetizer is a good value and an excellent complement to the cheese and wine.

The process of ordering strikes me each time as a bit kludgy. You receive a Samsung tablet when you arrive at your table with the apparent intent that you can order online, but each time we've failed in that attempt and wound up giving the order to the wait staff face-to-face. The tablet is helpful, however, to look over the wide range of selections before making your choice.

Seating comes in several forms: Bar stools at the bar; High tables for four with bar stools, or low seating around equally low tables. Seats are quite comfortable and either seems to work quite well. There is a separate dining room for large groups. It was full with a large group one night when we were in, but the sound level at our table was still quite reasonable and conversation was effortless.

There is ample parking behind the building, with warning signs outside the front door cautioning against parking across the street (in front of Nona's).

Probably not a great choice for families with small children, but if you are looking for someplace for quiet conversation with friends, this is an excellent choice.

Small new place, upscale but not pretentious. Large variety of wine by the glass or bottle. You choose from a tablet which lets you search by country, type, and other choices. Fairly expensive $9 or $12 a glass. Also large selection of bottled beer. Limited menu. Had cheese and charcuterie plate, 3 selections each @$3 per. Really good and fun. Pizza's looked good going to other tables, handmade. A little pricey but great fun and great wine!!

We visited a couple of weeks ago when a friend recommended it, and we have already returned. As you would expect, it has a good wine list with many options offered by the glass. It can be a bit pricey for your glass, but we felt it was well worth it. The wine was very good! They also have wine by the bottle, of course, and they will cork it so you can take the rest home.

The valet parking makes coming and going convenient.

But for me, the best part is the food. It is heavy appetizer type things and thin-crust pizzas and dinner salads. Don't miss the salsa de parmigiano spread. This is a blend of cheeses with oils and garlic served with rustic bread. You'll be scraping the bowl! We also really liked the pizza and salad. My favorite item though is the meatballs. They are very filling and so tasty! You can easily make a dinner out of their offerings.

It is a cozy atmosphere that is a great place to go with friends when you want to talk and enjoy a relaxed evening. Both times we went, it was on a weeknight. I imagine it can get crowded on the weekend. They do have a small room that can be reserved for groups of 20 or so.
