Azzurra Wine Bar Opens on Water Street

Azzurra Wine Bar opened two weeks ago, on South Water Street in Henderson. On the same block the lovely Azzurra restaurant was happy to welcome it’s sister wine bar.

“My dream was to build the perfect home on Water Street, then an office, followed by a coffee shop and then the restaurant,” says Windom Kimsey, Owner of Azzurra Wine Bar. “And the wine bar was the next perfect addition to our neighborhood! We are thrilled to have a spot for folks to enjoy a delicious glass of wine or two for an evening out or as they wait for their dinner reservation at Azzurra.”

General Manager, Samantha Remer, has designed the wines from 75 top favorites for tasting in or taking home. Favorites include: Barbaresco, Azienda Vitivinicola Piazzo Arge, Piedmont, IT 2018; Zinfandel Blend, Angels & Cowboys, Sonoma County, CA 2021; and Chablis, Domaine Testut, Vielles Vignes, FR 2022. Wines by the glass will range from $9-$28 with a rotating selection of guest favorites and new offerings.

Chef Alessandra Madeira of Azzurra Cucina Italiana, has prepared the wine bar’s food menu which includes bite-size Chef’s Ale Famous Mini Meatballs, rotating cheese and charcuterie options, dips, and other small plates like Deep Fried Rice Balls and Garlic Truffle Fries.

Located on the south end of Water Street in Henderson, the wine bar shares the space with daytime coffeehouse Public Works which was remodeled with a new front and back bar, upgraded counters, and lighting; the intimate space is a cozy spot to unwind in the heart of Henderson. A retail and private events space will host monthly wine classes and activations which I can’t wait for. Seating 46 guests in the main room and retail space, and the outdoor patio can seat 24 additional guests.
