Wine Time opens patio with new features

It’s finally time to enjoy a glass of wine outside, and Wine Time on Main is ready to make the most of the season.

The new downtown wine bar opened late last year at Washington Square across from the Washington Pavilion.

And while it’s a gorgeous, cozy space inside, it’s hard to top enjoying a great glass of wine outdoors.

Wine Time’s newly finished patio opened recently and is ready for guests whenever the weather allows.

“It’s a little more upscale design,” owner Bob Novak said. “We worked with The Design House to find the kind of furniture you can spend a couple hours in and it’s still comfortable.”

Along with the patio, Wine Time is debuting its spring feature list, which includes many choices perfect for enjoying outdoors.

“If you like Rose, you’ll love this menu,” Novak said. “We have several new Roses, all between $7.75 and $14.50 per glass, several excellent Chardonnays and some unique Cabernets.”

And it’s time to say goodbye to a couple dozen wines, which are being offered at close-out prices.

“They’re terrific wines, but we can only carry so many, so this is your chance to try some outstanding choices at a very good value,” Novak said. “Stop in soon because they likely won’t last long.”

Dining is always an option at Wine Time too. We’re biased, but we think it’s the best cheese and charcuterie in town.

“We really do have a fantastic supplier for our cheeses and meats, and we’ll be getting some lighter cheeses in for summer,” Novak said. “We have a lot of people who enjoy getting that as their dinner.”

Flight time

With more than 160 wines by the glass available, it can be tricky to decide which pour is for you.

That’s why you need to visit on Wednesdays when four different wine flight options are offered.

Another good option for exploring new flavors? Come on Tuesdays for half-price select bottles.

Wine 101

Start the week off with the perfect way to unwind while still learning. Wine 101 education events are held on Monday multiple times each month at Wine Time, offering the chance to learn more about specific types of wine.

A recent event on exploring Burgundy took participants through the various regions where it’s grown – with plenty of sampling, of course.

You’ll have to move fast to snag a spot, but it’s totally worth it.

“They’ve been a hit,” Novak said. “We email it out, and within a day or two, it usually fills. It’s an inexpensive, fun way to spend a Monday night.”

And mark your calendar for the evening of June 4, when wine maker and vineyard manager Lindsey Wallingford of Napa Valley’s Saint Helena Winery and sales manager Heather Kormos showcase five wines and talk in detail about the winery and wine-making process.

“The wines will be paired with amazing cheese and charcuterie from all over the world,” Novak said.

Summer hours

The patio opening also means it’s time for summer hours! Wine Time opens daily at 3 p.m. and closes at 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
