This is a gem. Doesn't look like a resturant. It's like stepping down into a European wine celler/cave. Wines from everywhere line the walls. You meander around, tables here and there until you come to the bar. On Fri and Sat they have live music to sing along with. And the food is wonderful.

An enjoyable evening for wine & music plus great small plates!
On Friday and Saturday evenings the Wineseller is open for dining - appetizers and small plates - and they offer nice entertainment. We enjoyed listening to the singer/piano player and also enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and delicious small plates for dinner. It was a very good experience.

The small plates of food were a great compliment to the solid assortment of available wines. The entertainment creates a comfortable atmosphere and we connected with locals as if we had lived there all of our lives. Can't wait until the summer to be able to sit outside and have a cigar from the vast array available downstairs.

Folkmoot had a fundraising event at the Classic Wineseller that was wonderful.

Fun wine tastings!
We attended a blind tasting of six wines, with the wine labels masked. The wines were paired in groupings of two. Attendees sat at tables family-style, which encouraged people to share comments about the wines. The distributor conducting the tasting asked people to guess the varietal and country of origin. It was a lively group disc ... read more

You need to go there!!!
What a fun place to go! The food was soooo good and the wine excellent and reasonable. They have wine tasting nights which are included with dinner. It is dark and intimate and I understand they have entertainment on the weekends. Not sure but think that could be a bit noisy as the room is small. I would highly recommend this.

Can't Miss Dining
Very creative menu and well prepared. We have been three times over the past two years. The weekend dining features excellent live music performances, The restaurant is located in a wine store so you access to a good collection to pair with dinner selection. They may try to upsell you on the wine so be clear on your choice.

If you enjoy wine, you need to drop by the Wineseller. It's located underneath the shops on Main Street.
