It only takes $30 to provide clean drinking water to someone living in an developing nation for 20 years. We've been proud supporters of clean water world wide, and with partnering with charity:water, we've provided over 400 people with that basic right. So with World Water Day on March 22nd, we want to do more.
When you purchase a bottle of wine from our selected list from March 22-29, we will donate 20% of the list price to charity:water. Can't make it in? Donate online below. Once you donate, you will be able to follow the progress of your donation and the good it can do!
Or you can always drop a few coins in the large wine bottle by the front door the next time you come see us. We will match your donation by a nickle for every quarter you drop in.
Drink wine, do good.
As featured in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on February 14th:
“The difference in flavor between locally grown carrots and bagged supermarket ones is striking,” [Chef Joe Hovanessian] says. “Roasting them brings the natural sugars out. When you get that blackened edge, they’re caramelized. There’s a fine line between a little black and burnt. If you burn them, start over.”
“The lentils add an earthiness while the light grill on the kale makes a textural change,” he says. Hovanessian likes French green lentils cooked just to tenderness. “They hold their shape well.” Every step in his soup recipe is considered. “The grated carrots add another dimension. We reserve a few, uncooked, to use as garnish.”

Throughout the month of July, we have a tomato explosion!
When you purchase our designated dish: mixed local heirloom tomatoes, basil infused olive oil, pea shoots, coarse sea salt & local horseradish gremolata ($3 of each sale supports Operation Food Search) 9.90
While we are proud supporters of Operation Food Search, this specific campaign is for the Summer Meals Program for Children, which ensures that children in need receive nutricious meals when school is not in session.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Update: You made it happen! Between the wine bottle sales and your online donations, we were able to raise $1100 dollars to help fund 37 people with clean water for a lifetime! Thank you to everyone who supported the project! You can keep up with the updates by clicking here.
By now you know that we have dedicated several years to our adopted cause, charity:water.
It's been simple: we placed a wine bottle by the front door and collect your spare change. We match 20% of your donation. For every $30 collected, one person in developing nations such as Haiti, Ethiopia and India receive clean drinking water for 20 years. We are proud to say we have collected enough money to help 371 people so far.
With World Water Day on March 22nd, we are ready to step up our game. Throughout the whole week of March 21-27, we are turning "Wine into Water". When you purchase any bottle of wine off our wine list, we will donate 20% of the list price to charity:water.
Want to help without buying a bottle? Donate directly to our cause online by clicking here.
When you choose a bottle of wine with your dinner, you're providing clean water for others. So, it's simple: drink wine, do good.
Chef Dominic was recently on Show Me St. Louis to talk about the upcoming Opera Theatre St. Louis' Wine and Beer Tasting event. Like the Trout dish you see? We're offering the recipe here too!
