Restaurant Road Trip: The Wine Bar at Vintner Valley

Posted: Updated:
Morgantown, WV -

The sweet sound of wine filling your glass is what you'll get at The Wine Bar at Vintner Valley.

"We decided to open this, conceptually about five years ago," said J. T. Straface, one of the owners of The Wine Bar. "After a few visits to Italy with some of the owners, and some of our other friends, it was something we thought we needed and wanted to have here, a nice place we could come, have a glass of wine, a little bit of food, nice conversation."

The ambiance is conducive to intimate conversation, with coffee house music playing softly, living room style leather chairs, and a cozy fireplace connecting the restaurant with the private room.

But it's not just the atmosphere that's drawing folks here. With meat and cheese platters, fresh figs and grapes, and margarita pizza with fresh basil, it's the Italian style food that's keeping folks coming back.

A neat thing about the restaurant is the tablet it uses for its wine and beer list. You can filter what you're looking for by price, country, grape, and it narrows it down for you. And when you find what you want, it has a write up showing the alcohol content, what to pair it with, and even about the winery it came from. A conversation piece for sure. And in a place like this, that conversation could just go all night.

The Wine Bar is located on Burroughs Street in Morgantown. It's open from 4 p.m. to midnight seven days a week. For more information, go to
