About Our Store
It's About the Ritual
(Photo - Nick Adams, Galesburg Register-Mail)
It all started with a deep interest in cooking and the wines that go with food - that wonderful ritual that challenges the senses and creates pleasure from the moment the cork is popped and the first pat of butter is dropped in the heated pan.
From interest to hobby to vocation - it was a long path of discovery. Of flavors. Of rituals. Of those timeless experiences that nurture our soul and bring us closer together.
Market Alley Wines is born of passion - it's a vision to share the joy of a glass of good wine, the joy of discovery and the joy of a wonderful meal paired with the perfect wine.
Great wine doesn't need to be expensive. Neither does great food. It's about learning the vocabulary of what you love and bringing those flavors together so that whole far exceeds the sum of the parts.
Market Alley Wines is also about a belief in Monmouth - a wonderful rural town with a heart of gold and a downtown that brings us back to those simpler times, decades and generations ago.
Welcome to Market Alley Wines - please join us in our journey. Come in, sit down and relax - and let's talk about wine, food and those tasty rituals we hold so dear. We'll save a stool for you!
That's our wine story. Come in and create a wine story of your own.
