Wine Bar
Please note - Due to Covid-19, per state restaurant guidance, drinks can only be served in the same transaction as a dine-in meal.

A lab is where people discover and learn. With over 70 wines by the glass, tasting flights that change regularly, and winery events, you’ll be able to do just that. In addition we have craft beers on tap and by the bottle, artisan cheese platters, flat-breads and tapas (https://winelab.net/tasting-flights/) We hope you are curious about wine and want to try new things. If not, we’ll make sure you have a good glass of wine no matter what your mood. Any wine in our inventory (over 400 bottles) may be opened at the bar with a modest corkage fee.

We had a great time at the Wine Lab! We started off with a cheese plate and some wine flights, which were delicious. Then Edwin gave us some wonderful recommendations! Will certainly be frequenting the Wine Lab and the Camp!

Great service. The cheese plate was great. Cool atmosphere. But the wine.... I sampled 6 different wines, and all but one tasted like they were halfway to vinegar.

Wine was mediocre for the flight choices. The charcuterie was something a child could put together. Cheese was stale.

The gentleman serving seemed bothered to be at work. It took him a while to warm up, both my partner and I took it personally at the beginning, but the night got better.

The service was amazing, the food great and the lone guy running the show was killing it for a one man team.

Come here all the time and have always had a warm reception by the staff, owner and other patrons. We're members of their wine club which really does offer a pretty impressive and unique selection of wines from all over the globe. Would definitely recommend joining their wine club, (hopefully in the future) partaking in their club events, or at a minimum at least swinging by for a glass!

Chairs with backs (rather than stools) would raise my enjoyment and ratings quite a bit!

I enjoy wine and my husband enjoys beer so this was a nice place to go because I had it fantastic selection of wine and a couple beers on draft. The charcuterie board pairings were subpar.

Our experience at wine lab was fantastic! The food was great and our server was very attentive and very polite. It was a little quite because we were the only ones there but still a great time, would have love to see this place when it was allowed to serve at full capacity.

Wine Lab during COVID, requires a reservation. The staff is very pleasant. The wines change every few weeks per the staff. I liked that they didn’t rush us out and were easy to get their attention when we needed to order something else, they also checked in with us frequently so that was nice!
