The Wine Studio closing, holding a wake

The Wine Studio on Charlotte Street bases its reputation on providing straightforward talk about wine. Now, in characteristically upfront fashion, the Wine Studio is holding a wake. They're going out of business after almost three years.

Carah Roberts, operations director, confirmed the closure. She says the wake will be the business' final way of showing support to their customers. “We don't want to just disappear,” she says. “It's going to be sort of a celebratory, change-is-OK kind of a party.” The closing celebration will take place on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 21 and 22, from 5 – 9 p.m. The shop will remain open through Sunday, Sept. 23.

In the meantime, the Wine Studio will continue to hold its “Winesdays” events on Wednesday nights from 5 to 8 p.m., when they sell five wines for $5 per bottle with wine by the glass for $5 as well.

Even though regular business hours end on Sept. 23, the shop will continue to facilitate orders and deliveries until the end of the month. “We're letting our customers know that if there's anything they want that now is a good time to order it,” Roberts says.
