The Owl

This wine bar is owned by John Bourdeau. No stranger to the food and wine industry, John is a restaurateur with extensive experience in wines. A local resident of Woodbury, he owns The Main Street Grill in Watertown and co-owns Highland Brass Co. in Waterbury. See our past article on his restaurant HERE. The Owl is not a large space, seating about 20 people inside and another 20 outside on the patio, but the intimate atmosphere is inviting and the wood burning fireplace provides another level of warmth in winter. In addition to a wide selection of wines, they serve spiced nuts, citrus rosemary olives, cheese and charcuterie as well as seasonal soups, quiche and panini. They have monthly events like wine tastings and pairing classes, as well as some summer BBQs on the lawn over the summer. See our article on The Owl HERE.

Hours: Wednesday – Friday: 4 – 9 pm; Saturday and Sunday: 1 – 9 pm. However, the wine bar will stay open if customers are still there.
