Siesta Key Wine Bar
Meet Tom & Melanie
It has always been a dream of ours to open a bar and what better place to do it than Siesta Key! Tom and I have always had a passion for food and wine and decided "why not open a Wine Bar?". I began to discover that I had a true love for wine when I lived in Santa Barbara, CA. I worked in the restaurant industry for over 8 years and I have always dreamed of having a place of my own. Growing up Tom’s family owned two bars and a restaurant and he has always admired his parents' passion and always wanted to carry on the legacy. We are both avid travelers, foodies, wine and beer lovers, runners, fisherman, boaters, and also have a love for Real Estate.
Most of our time was spent living in Scottsdale, AZ but we have lived in many great places including Telluride, CO., Seattle, WA., Akron, OH., and one of our favorite places: Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We love our dogs, cerveza, wine, and our simple life!
Now that you've met us online, come by and meet us in person!
I am originally from Hershey, PA but have lived in Sarasota, FL since 2005. I have three brothers and two absolutely amazing parents!
I played soccer for 15 years and accepted a full scholarship to a
Division 1 University in Louisiana before transferring to the
University of Central Florida to complete my Bachelor's in Marketing.
I love playing pool, going to the beach, and of course, drinking wine!
