About Us

Thief & Barrel was always part of the bigger picture of Wine Resources LLC. So often, you have great wine makers, small lot, boutique, garagiste who are offering a wonderful product, but have nowhere to share, pour or sell. So often, they are busy with their “full time gig” and have little to no time to market their own product, or it’s cost prohibitive. Plus all the state and federal rules that are set in place and now have a long-term commitment just trying to dig your way through the paperwork before you can even think about getting to the point of opening a location to pour your wines.

Thief and Barrel wine tasting rooms

Thief & Barrel was created with all the issues and obstacles in mind. We want to offer the boutique wineries a place to call home or even a 2nd tasting room to assist them in reaching their audience.

Our goal at Thief & Barrel is to carry a vast array of wines that will fit many different palates. To introduce people to new wines and even the wine makers. We are not a “wine bar” but we are tasting bar and plan to give you great options and help with a bit of education along the way.

Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living. —Robert Mondavi
