Come see why The Wine Den is one of the area's most acclaimed wine stores...

Come see why The Wine Den is one of the area's most acclaimed wine stores and gift shops located in downtown Mt. Dora. Since 2008, we have offered a unique combination of a wine bar with a wine and gift shop.

The Wine Den specializes in finding, family produced, small production, artisan wines. Our very knowledgeable staff will help you pick out the perfect bottle of wine for any occasion! Whether you are celebrating an accomplishment, or just need a little relaxing replenishment of your soul, you'll love enjoying a glass of wine or maybe a microbrew beer in our shop.

Having begun their romance in a wine bar, it only made sense that Devon and Cary Polkovitz continue it in their very own establishment. After spending a weekend in Mount Dora, they fell in love with the town and decided that this would be their new home. Two years later they bundled up their menagerie of cats, their Basset Hound, and their daughter and put down roots. They are more than excited to be taking over The Wine Den.

My wife and I visit this establishment every time we go to Mt. Dora, this is a necessary stop for wine drinkers. Great wine at reasonable prices.

I was shopping in the area and decided to check out their selection of wines. I asked about tasting a Cabernet, but the owner was kind of snotty and said that wine tasting was in the evening and if I wanted a glass it'd be $8 (for a wine that cost $20). Then she reconsidered since "she's the owner" and... More

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your shopping experience while visiting The Wine Den during a festival weekend in downtown Mt. Dora. Because we were preparing for our formal wine tasting that evening (the first Friday, every month), we apologize if our service seemed short. The Wine Den is a retail shop as well as a wine bar. This combination... More

We were able to meet Christina and Eric on our visit. They were very friendly and informative about their selection of wines. Tried a Savignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Both were great. Only suggestion, need to be kept colder. My husband enjoyed some sparkling wine. We were invited to come back for monthly wine tastings and will definitely return.

Cozy, with Christina the owner making us feel most welcomed, and Greta wine offering, we had a great time, and met some wonderful people. The wine selection was wonderful, and the way she has the bar set up, it encourages you to join in with other people and enjoy good Craic.

This shop has an extensive stock of a variety of Low to Mid to High end wines, easy to find some thing you like. If they don't have it in stock, they can order it. Wine by the glass is available, with the menu changing weekly, craft beers are also available. Very relaxed environment, nice bar set up, comfortable seating.... More

I love this wine store. Whenever we visit Mt. Dora we stop in at The Wine Den and sample some of the wine. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and Christine, the owner is very helpful in selecting a wine you will like. I love that this is a dog friendly environment also.

I had just moved to the Mt Dora area, and had visited several of the local wine spots, looking for somewhere to go and relax with a nice glass of wine from time to time.

The owner is not nice. She has a nasty attitude. There is no need to be rude. I will never recommend The Wine Den.
