Becoming part of the community is important for any business to be successful, but the owners of Mondo Vino took it a step farther by helping to bring up the community around them. Since 1999, when the West Highlands neighborhood was more neglected than trendy, Mondo Vino has been the cornerstone of a community continually committed to improvement, sponsoring community events from the annual street fair to school fundraisers.
The store is a more of a community center than liquor store; a place where neighbors meet and catch up, where the owners and employees know everyone’s name, as well as their kids’ and dogs’ names. They pride themselves on helping each friend find the perfect bottle of wine, from a simple table wine for take-out to a bottle that excites the pallet of a discerning connoisseur.
Free Wine and Pared Cheese Tastings: Fridays and Saturdays from 2:00-7:00pm.
