Are you looking for a few new products while you are staying at home? We hope you are staying healthy. Capital Cellars remains open for business, but we are in the middle of a business ebb right now, and we are swimming along with the tide. Where we end up, we do not know, but here we are!
We have been asked, “How can I help?” The way you can help us is very satisfying and appealing at the same time! Simply buy wine, or bourbon, or something else from us, and enjoy it at home! We are carrying out phone in orders to your vehicle. You can also come in the store, one person at a time. This is the best way we’re going to get through all of this. Without you, our loyal customers, we wouldn’t be here. Thanks for sticking with us through all of this. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you very much. And please stay healthy!

Upcoming events? We are itching to schedule one. We have Lux Row tentatively for the end of June. We are taking sincere and serious precautions with our business cleanliness and manner of conducting business. We are definitely open to business, but not bar or restaurant dining. We are limiting the number of employees in our building and we are limiting customers to one at a time. We are taking phone orders at 502-352-2600, and we can carry products out to your vehicle.
