The Wine Press: Wine Bar & Cafe

A short ride from downtown Saint Louis’ most notable attractions, The Wine Press bar and café is an ideal place to relax, enjoy a glass of wine, and exceptional appetizers and entrees. While we take what we do seriously, first and foremost, we believe drinking wine should be enjoyed by all, novices and connoisseurs alike. With a generous selection of wine by the glass, craft beers and spirits, The Wine Press is the perfect setting for a romantic meal before the theater at the Fox, or an event in Grand Center, or just to indulge in a casual evening out with friends and family.

Our talented staff go the distance to ensure an experience unlike any other in Saint Louis. Fresh ingredients and attention to presentation make dining at The Wine Press unique. During the summer months, the patio is open and during the fall, sit by the fire pit; either provide a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine.

The Wine Press, St Louis, MO, is a Non-Smoking establishment.

De Gustibus Non Disputandum Est

Or, in English: In matters of taste, one should not argue.

The culture of being a more educated wine drinker has reached mass appeal.  De Gustibus Non Disputandum Est makes for a good credo. It invites everyone to the table; snobs, slobs, sloven and sophisticate. There is a lot to discover about the world of wine and each other. Expanding our knowledge of wine offers a common interest, and a lubricant to exercise conversation.

Our History

Located on the edge of the Central West End, and the fringe of the old Gas Light district. The Wine Press opened in 2008, after months of renovations in an effort to maintain the charm of this historic structure. The Wine Press is the outcome of a desire and the commitment of the owner, Greg Stevens. He has created an environment where people can share a casual evening with friends, enhanced by fine wines in comfortable surroundings. As a long-time resident and proprietor of Peace Institute Printing; Greg’s passion was recognized in May 2010, when he was presented a Landmarks Association Honors Award for one of the top 10 Building Renovations in Saint Louis .

The Wine Press will be closed Friday, November 28 and Saturday, November 29

The Wine Press will be closed the last Friday and Saturday of November to allow our staff to celebrate Thanksgiving. We are thankful for all of our loyal guests and talented musicians  and for all the friends we’ve made in 2014.
