The Reserve is a home from home for the wine lover, the wine novice and the wine geek. More than anything it will be a safe refuge to hide away from the daily grind and be taken on a vinous journey that will excite and stimulate the senses.
The Reserve Wine Bar is the culmination of dreams. The result of a shared vision, a place that we all wanted to drink in our home town. We craved a venue to indulge our habit in comfortable surroundings and we were bored of waiting for it. So we made it happen. It was only when we found the space that we knew we were onto something special.
It’s not quite clear how this all happened. How the three of us got this project off the ground. The universe moves in mysterious ways that’s for sure.
Tim Bohlsen, an IT Specialist with a degree in engineering and a love of Lakes Folly, Justin Oliver, a coffee shop owner with computer wizardry skills and a soft spot for Riesling and Patrick Haddock, a wine journalist and copywriter who goes under the pseudonym of Wining Pom and has a thing for Pinot Noir.
Despite our different life paths we have a single unifying shared passion. Wine. It’s that simple. We just wanted a place for wine lovers out there a venue where they could indulge their grape habit. Welcome to the Reserve.
