Stave Wine Bar And Market
Stave Wine Bar & Market offers patrons a truly unique wine experience, right in the heart of Uptown Normal. With a ‘curated’ approach to a global by the glass and bottle list, Stave Wine Bar features 12-15 small production wines by the glass on a list that changes monthly. Rounding out that list is another 60-80 wines available by the bottle, for enjoyment at the wine bar or to take home. Owner/Wine Buyer Greg Rose has been in the wine industry for over 12 years and strives to offer interesting, sometime rarely found varietals with the goal of giving wine drinkers an opportunity to experience lesser known wines from around the world. Craft beers are available on tap and in bottle as well. Stave Wine Bar also serves a fine selection of Charcuterie (smoked and cured meats) and international cheeses to accompany and enhance your wine experience. With a friendly and knowledgeable staff, Stave Wine Bar is the place to experience the wines of the world. Stave Wine Bar & Market- simply a better glass of wine!
