Looks like Dezel has found another “favorite” in Loudoun County. Surprised? Located in the heart of historic downtown Leesburg is an exciting new wine bar – The Wine Kitchen.
The Wine Kitchen is a wine bar restaurant that is a great destination for food and wine lovers. The menu offers a great selection of wines and savory fare for the ultimate sensory experience. I found the atmosphere to be inviting and unpretentious and good for conversation, laughter and good old-fashioned fun. The décor is stylish, yet comfortable, maintaining a country kitchen feel, much like the name suggests. Seating consists of an attractive wine bar, tables and chairs, and a long community kitchen table.
Wine Bar Picture
The Wine Kitchen offers wine by the glass, bottle, and a popular option, the themed wine flight. Dezel is a flight guy, and some of the themed flights offered are: “The Plains of Spain”, “The Hills of Italy”, “A Riesling to be”, and “Roll out the Red Carpet”. These are just a few of the flights available, and each flight features three wines equaling one full glass. Whether you order a glass, flight, or bottle, every wine comes complete with a wine card written by owners Jason Miller and Michael Mercer. A snippet from a glass of Spanish Garnacha I recently enjoyed reads, “A big handful of super-ripe blackberries just waiting to wrap themselves around your taste buds and take you back to that warm Saturday afternoon you took the kids berry picking at Great Country Farms in Bluemont.” Cool or what?
Charming & Cozy
The food is described as seasonal American Bistro and takes full advantage of local and organic ingredients by local and regional farmers. A review of the menu gives an impression of country comfort food swirled with upscale restaurant-quality fare served up tapas-style (as in portion size). Try a gourmet cheese platter, olives and nuts, a fresh citrus or harvest salad, or move on to something more substantive like the red wine braised local pork or the Maine diver scallops. Yummy! There is something for every palate preference on both the wine and food menu – and yes, you can eat and drink local, as The Wine Kitchen carries select Virginia wines.
Wine Cards accompany every Glass – Collect them all !
The Wine Kitchen also offers free wi-fi, and other drink selections including imported beer and organic juices and tea. Also, if you find a bottle you like, you can purchase that bottle to consume off store premises for $10 off the menu bottle price. The wine selection has been carefully selected, so you will not find these selections at nearby wine retail stores. In closing, if you have not visited The Wine Kitchen yet, step inside and indulge your senses in delicious food and tasty wine while enjoying the great ambiance and warm hospitality. I did, and ready to do it all over again!
Happy Sipping, friends! I'm enjoying the Wine Kitchen :-)
