This is a love letter. Since I was a child and first met you, I have been enchanted by your coast and pace of life. I have come back to you because I love you and the people who live here. While I have lived in the beautiful wine regions of France, Spain, New Zealand and California you are still my home. I have worked for you on the bars and floors of Perfetto’s, Bull Feeney’s, Walters, Hugo’s, Uffa! Restaurant, The Frog and Turtle and The Little Tap House.
I have studied wine, service, management, finance and personal growth so that I could give back to you. Now, the culmination of all of my love and experiences is here in Portland in the form of MJ’s Wine Bar.
MJ’s Wine Bar offers 30 wines by the glass and half glass from around the world. We serve local tap beers and bottled beers from “Away”. To accompany these beverage offerings we serve cheese plates, olives, nuts and chocolate. There is a piano for you to play if you like and vinyl stacked on the wall for you to listen to. However, the focus is just on spending time together to sip, think and share.
I have a garage for you to park in for free if you’re driving and a patio for you to lounge on if it’s sunny. If you have a tough day at the office I’ll lower my wine and beer prices so you can have an hour of “happy” after work. You don’t have to get up, we’ll come to the table. If you get drunk on Saturday I’ll make you a waffle Sunday morning and pour you some champagne. I love you Portland, Maine and I want you to come in and spend your days with me.
MJ’s Wine Bar is a dream that grew out of fifteen years of putting tips in a jar for “someday” and now that day is here. People of Portland, you inspire me to be a better person and I want to pour you a glass in celebration of our community. Thank you for being you,
