Modest Wine is a super cute wine shop in Winter Park that offers an elevated wine experience without the pretentiousness. I stumbled upon this wine shop while looking for things to do in the area, and I learned that they offered free walk-in blind tasting every day between 12pm-5pm, so of course, I added it to my list of things to check out!
I finally made it to the shop on Wednesday and fell in love! The owner Kyle was super cool and very welcoming. The wine shop is open and airy with a minimalist design to showcase all the wine, and they have a super adorable retro-inspired seating area near the front entrance!
This wine shop is the perfect place to explore new wines. In addition to the blind tasting, they also serve the selected wines by the glass if you want to chill or catch up on work. They have other goodies you can purchase, like glassware, decanters, shirts, candles, and wine openers.
Here's what we tasted:
RED: Triennes Saint Fleur Viognier 2019 - READ MORE HERE
SPARKILING: Treveri Chenin Blanc Brut Nv - READ MORE HERE
WHIRE: Michel Bregeon Muscadet Sevre Et Maine Sur Lie 2019 - READ MORE HERE
SN: I did not write down any tasting notes, this is from my memory, lol - the red was a spicy, medium-bodied red, the sparkling was a traditionally made sparkling, with refined bubbles with notes of melons and honey, and the white was crisp, citrusy, with notes of green fruits perfect with fresh seafood like oysters. I loved the Sparkling and had two glasses after :)
