Vino Vitae  

vi•no vi•ta  /ˈviːnəʊ ˈvaɪtiː/ noun (pl. -tae)

Vino Vitae literally invites you to explore the "
life of wine!"

The pairing of wine and life through education & events

• a place designed to achieve this

• offering technical classes for oenophiles

• where one savors wine with friends

ORIGIN early 21st cent. (in the sense [the fact of life with wine]): from Latin vino vitae (see VINO).

Through retail education in our historic Lafayette Square neighborhood shop, we encourage you to expand your palate!  Enjoy happy hours, tastings on or offsite, custom classes and events, or just pick up a bottle or two!  We make an appreciation of wine accessible to all!

Let us cater your next corporate or personal gathering!  We can accommodate any budget and will do our best to satisfy your wine taste and curiosity!

Having trouble locating your favorite wine, beer or spirit?  Give us a call.  Spend some time with us, enjoying a glass around our cozy bar or relaxing on the patio.  Or just stop in to pick up your custom order.  We can even deliver cases directly to your door for your next event!

We offer a selection of Old World and New World wines from Peter Weygandt, Terry Theise, Jorge Ordonez to name a few.   We research and hand select a variety of wines to delight you and we would be happy to help you join our Wine Club to continue learning throughout the year! 

Schedule your next private, corporate or in-home winetasting, sign up for an intimate class or discover something new.  Check out our Events Calendar to learn more.
