Bellbrook wine bar to get new owner

New Uncork’d Wne Bar & Bistro will offer expanded food menu

An Urbana man has reached an agreement to buy Cuvee Wine Bar in Bellbrook, will introduce a more extensive food menu and will change the name to Uncork’d Wine Bar & Bistro in the coming months.

Michael Holtvoigt, an owner of Holt Bros. Plumbing, Heating & Cooling in Urbana, will be the new owner of the wine bar that was founded 15 years ago at at 4457 W. Franklin St. (Ohio 725 at Wilmington Pike).

Holtvoigt and the current owners — Lisa Corral and her daughters Sarah Corral and Natalie Corral, all of Sugarcreek Twp. —are scheduled to close on the purchase Monday, March 24, according to Holtvoigt and Sarah Corral. The wine bar will open for business as usual the following day, March 25, Holtvoigt said.

The name change and the expanded menu, as well as other changes and additions, will occur gradually in the coming weeks and months, Holtvoigt said.

Holtvoigt said wine has been his passion for years — he is part of an informal wine club in Urbana called The Glass Sippers — and he was impressed by the Bellbrook area and by the wine bar’s setup and layout. He is planning a menu that includes tapas and other appetizers, soup, panini sandwiches, cheese, fruit and perhaps flatbread pizzas, and said he also intends to expand craft beer selections and add martinis and other cocktails.

There has been a wine bar in the retail shopping center’s space since 1999, when Cindy Hill opened the doors of Cindy’s Wine Cellar. Hill sold it to one of her employees, Jessica Paringer, and Paringer’s husband, local chef Chris Cavender, in 2005, and the wine bar became Cuvee Wine Bar & Cellar. The Corrals purchased the business in 2010 from Cavender, and kept the Cuvee name.
