Mercy on the Go

Mercy on the Go is officially launched!!

What is this, you are asking? While we don’t have a retail store; we are selling all of our wines retail NOW, as of April 1. You are now able to take home a bottle or two or as much as you care of your favorite Mercy wine selections. Many of the wines are exclusively here or would be difficult to find elsewhere. We already have several instances of guests enjoying a wine they haven’t had before and then inquiring if they can purchase a bottle or two to take home to enjoy. We can absolutely do that now ! We have had many guests tell us how happy they are that their favorite wine bar is also now their favorite wine store retailer. Imagine that you are invited to a friend's house for dinner and are not sure what to bring, well, the perfect gift is a bottle of wine. Something your host may not have tried before or even know about.

Here is how this works. You may purchase any wine from our wine list, To Go, at a 45% discount off of the in-house bottle price. Your bottle must be consumed off premises (state law, not Mercy’s). In addition to the wine, you will now be able to purchase Mercy glassware as well. These glasses are a crystal, titanium mix that is more durable and sturdier than a standard wine glass. Saves on breakage, unless you are prone to throwing them! Very shortly you will be able to purchase a Mercy logo wine key as well.

We have more exciting things coming so stay tuned!! In the mean time, we are pleased you have the entire Mercy wine list at your disposal to take home!

If you go online at mercywinebar.com and find a wine you like and would like more info on it or get more reviews on that wine Mercy is working very closely with the developer, Tim Hoffman (a Mercy guest for years) who has recently launched a site named Vinester. Check out his website at vinester.com. He has hundreds of thousands of wines listed with tasting notes and backgrounds on the regions or origin. You will be able to leave your own tasting notes and experiences on wines. This is one of the most comprehensive wine lists on the web. One of our missions is “wine education”. Mercy will continue to source wines help you broaden your palate as well as give you more information about the wines you like and the ones you are about to discover.

Mercy on the Go! Take a piece of Mercy home with you today!!
