The Grape Uncorks In Coral Gables

Wine Bar and Retail Seller Opens at the Village of Merrick Park

Miami, FL (September 18, 2006) – South Floridians will soon be introduced to the ultimate wine experience as The Grape Wine Bar and Retail Seller is slated to open at the Village of Merrick Park just in time to take part in the peak of the fall season. Already a destination for fine wine and gourmet fare enthusiasts across the Southeast, The Grape is sure to entice a new following in the Coral Gables area.

The Grape is a perfect fit for Merrick Park’s extraordinary shopping, dining and entertainment district. The unique, high-luxury mix of retailers paired with the breathtaking open-air atmosphere and spectacular landscaping have already made the Village a hub for locals and visitors. Now patrons will enjoy stopping at The Grape for a glass of their favorite wine or a gourmet meal, as they stroll through the variety of shops, people watch and relax with views of the refreshing fountains and serene garden.

The first location of The Grape opened in 2000 in the Vinings area of Atlanta, Ga., and the main headquarters currently resides there, as well. With its simple and clever 10-part wine classification system and The Grape’s motto, “Your Taste is All that Counts,” wine connoisseurs and novices alike soon fell in love with the concept. This will be the sixth Florida location for the Wine Bar and Retail Seller, and The Grape currently operates stores in the following states: Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, Tennessee and Alabama.

The Grape is a one-of-a-kind concept that contains two separate but complementary businesses running side-by-side: the Wine Bar and the Retail Seller. The Grape’s Seller is an inviting, well-planned wine shop. Wines are attractively and logically displayed for guests to browse and taste based on The Grape’s copyrighted 10-part classification system, which allows both the novice and the wine connoisseur to choose the perfect complement to their meal and personal taste. Boutique and medium-sized wineries of high quality make The Grape’s cut to provide guests with more than 120 wines of varying style and price. All wines are available by the glass, half glass and bottle. An educated and friendly staff is also on-hand to offer expertise before, during and after the sale. In addition, The Grape is the only restaurant/retail store to carry the esteemed de Venoge Champagne.

The Grape’s Wine Bar is a comfortable gathering place with both indoor and outdoor seating. The Wine Bar entices guests to taste the same wines available for purchase in the Seller next door, along with specialty prepared gourmet fare, including spreads, appetizers, entrees and desserts, to match the wine selections. The Grape also features live entertainment during the week.

The Grape Wine Bar and Retail Seller have educated (edutainment) wine lovers in a non-intimidating and fun environment since 2000. The Grape at the Village of Merrick Park is located at 360 San Lorenzo Avenue, Suite 1500, Coral Gables, FL 33134.
