    My wife and I kicked off our 20th Anniversary with me surprising her at Melanated Wine. We were really impressed and very felt pleased with everything. We enjoyed the great atmosphere and awesome customer service. From the tastings, to the cupcakes to the additional cupcakes. 😂 Nice atmosphere, soft music during our stay for our anniversary and great attention to detail. The owners and staff were top notch! You will NOT be disappointed if you go. Great job Melanated Wine. We will return soon. Thank you for everything.

    Enjoyed my first visit to Melanated Wine. Their new addition Blackberry wine is amazing. My 2 favorites are Blackberry and Sangria. Can’t wait to order my shipment of Blackberry when it becomes available. Nice place to chill and enjoy some nice wines.

    My husband and I went to Melanated Wine for our anniversary. It is a quaint spot, very relaxing, and intimate. The server was very knowledgeable on the wine and displayed a very positive attitude. We did the elevated wine tasting, which consisted of 4 wines and a bonus wine they were about to market. We also got individual charcuterie plates. I think the price was worth it. I will definitely go back again, perfect for a girls night out or if you want to take some self care time.

    Loved it, this was our first wine tasting and the experience was great. We learned more than just about the different wines that offered, we was told a little history about the owner, her family how it all started for her. The staff was awesome. We just enjoyed them and the wine. P.S Black Owned Business

She was personable, engaging, and a very sweet woman who wanted to ensure our experience was divine. Please check out the “privilege” or “vibe” wine!! The slushies are amazing too.

    Such a special experience! The owners were excited to share the place with us, personable, genuinely kind, and knowledgeable about their unique wines! They offer a small box of prepared food to accompany a wine tasting. The ambiance was relaxing, calm yet exciting, and the decorations made for fun photos & scenery. In addition to the 4 wines they offer at this time, they have their own fruit flavored wine slushies. Great spot to relax and sip wine!

    Absolutely FANTASTIC! We were there in the afternoon for an early anniversary date and it was such a great experience. The owner,herself, walked us through our tasting, telling us about each wine and why it was named. The wine itself was also SO good! We will definitely be back to try the wine slushees! They also had these little charcuterie boxes that were such a great touch!!! Who doesn’t love wine and cheese?! Don’t let the industrial area trick you, the ambiance inside is awesome, and it’s super close to downtown and the suburbs! We are definitely going to be back soon!
