Wine on High Unveils Modern Renovation
Short North wine retail shop Wine on High has re-opened following a major interior rehaul.
“As the neighborhood evolved, we felt we should evolve with it as well, and I’ve always had a vision the space being a little more modern, contemporary, and progressive,” said owner Sheila Trautner.
The 1,500 square-foot space shifted from an old-world feel to vibrant modern design. The shop closed down in early August, timed to reopen just in time for the holiday season.
The 789 North High Street business is now aiming to become a place to stop in before or after dinner. The bar, which was previously on the second floor, has moved down to the first floor to become front and center. Upstairs tables seat 18. Two beers on tap, glass pours, and four tasting flights, are available at the bar. Guests can also drink a bottle of wine in-shop for a corkage fee. Charcuterie, cheeseboards, and dessert wine pairings will be available, from a kitchen component serviced from the connected Hubbard Grille.
Wine on High will offer wine tastings, educational seminars, and possibly wine dinners after the new year. Over 200 bottles of wine are currently available for purchase, along with a small beer selection.
“Our goal is to be a place you can come buy a $10 bottle of wine, or if you want to do something special and splurge, we have the expertise here to help you find the perfect bottle,” said Trautner.
Wine on High is open noon – 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and noon – midnight Friday and Saturday.
