The Scoop: New wine bar in Benton Park

April 21st 02:04pm, 2009

Local oenophiles will no doubt spend plenty of time this summer sniffing, swirling and sipping in Benton Park, which will be home to STL’s latest wine bar come the end of May. Ernesto’s, named after Ernest Hemingway, is a collaboration between owners Deitrich Volk and Tom Revie, both of Phoenix Redevelopment Group, and advanced sommelier Brian Hobbs, who will serve as general manager. “It’s sort of a celebration of food, wine and travel,” said Hobbs, who ran Brooklyn’s Stonehome Wine Bar for the last five years. “I hope to work with artisanal winemakers from around the world and source local products for our bar.” Hobbs plans to offer a diverse international wine list and nightly food and wine specials. Ernesto’s will be located at 2730 McNair Ave.

    Sounds fantastic, weaving wine, food and literature into a fabric of advernture true to Hemmingway’s spirit.
    Here’s to the lost generation and “writting one true simple sentence”.

    [...] As reported by Sauce Magazine, this nifty building in Benton Park will be host to a wine bar called Ernesto’s. Check out the Streetview from 2007 and then look at the massive rehaul the building underwent. [...]

    Having just returned from a four day weekend in Sonoma where we tasted several fantastic new releases I am looking forward to the opening of Ernesto’s; somewhere I can enjoy small production reserve wines. See you soon.

    I LOVE Ernesto’s!! They always have a special on a house red for $5 dollars that’s fantastic. The bar is non-smoking, which I love. I always have Brian pick the cheese’s when I order the cheese plate….always been outstanding! I had the chocolate pate’ a few night’s ago, and it was also wonderful. Great place to go, have nice wine, socialize, but not break the bank.
