It’s been one year since Wine Barrel filled locals’ holidays with a little more joy — and spirits — with its soft opening the week before Christmas 2015.
After one year of operation, business is good for owner Atul Gupta, who has been making the 5,000 sf store at Springfield Avenue and Prospect Street a major player in the Maplewood community by sponsoring community events, providing event space in its renovated, clean and bright cellar, and stocking shelves full of liquor, craft beer and wine — plus cheese, crackers, chocolate and cigars.
Now, Wine Barrel website has recently been revamped, allowing customers to order and pay online: www.winebarrelmaplewood.com. Currently, orders must be picked up in the store, but Gupta says home delivery is coming soon.
Wine Barrel, 1886 Springfield Ave., Maplewood, NJ, 973-275-0400, www.winebarrelmaplewood.com.
