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.

Stopped in to have a glass of wine. New owners and they are really nice, inviting and engaging. Great wine choices and you can try anything they have. Good luck in Mount Dora. We enjoyed ourselves during our visit.

Wine tasting available here but I just bought wine. They have a great choice of wines there. I bought a fantastic prosecco from Italy. Highly recommend you get a bottle before you go home.

Even one of the bottles has their logo on the wine bottle. We went in and tried wine from the local wine. it was sweet wine in which... More

Each month, on the first Friday, for only $10 from 7pm - 9pm, The Wine Den has a wine tasting of roughly a dozen wines based on a specific theme. This month was comparing a rose with a red. There were 3 stations set up with wines from different regions. Appetizers were laid out to help clean one's palate. Very... More

Just (figuratively) stumbled upon this cute wine place; a bit off the beaten path. Quite a wine selection, but some excellent beer offerings, as well. I saw 3 draft beers on the chalkboard beer menu, and decided to try the Southern Tier 2XIPA. Though it's not from the South, at all (NY state!), it was a tasty, hoppy, double IPA,... More
