Oxbow Wine Merchant short barThe Oxbow Wine Merchant & Wine Bar was started by a group of colleagues who combined decades of wine industry experience.
As individuals, their achievements include—but aren’t limited to—being a Master Sommelier, developing countless restaurant wine programs, judging national wine competitions, directing wine education programs, retail wine experience, and authoring books about wine.
When this group chooses a wine they want customers to sample, it’s worth paying attention. As their motto says: “We spit so you don’t have to.”
Located at the river end of the main hall, Oxbow Wine Merchant lets you taste and buy wines from small, artisan producers around the world (and the knowledgeable staff is always ready to help you learn about the wines).
Oxbow Wine Merchant tasting bar, cheese, beer and wine shopSip a glass of wine outside on the river-view deck, or sit at the short bar and chat. Order by the taste, glass, carafe, or bottle; indulge in a flight; consider taking a guided cheese & wine pairing class; or attend one of the popular evening wine (or beer) tastings.
Hungry? Order the Artisanal Cheese Board or Charcuterie Platter (The Works combines the best of both).
