Matt started Vino Cellars back in 2007 as a single man with ambitions of growing his small wine shop into a place where people would come to find not only great wine but also a place where they would feel comfortable and not intimidated as wine buying can sometimes be! What he didnt expect was to meet his future wife shortly after opening the store. Steph came into Vino looking for wine and found so much more. The couple married New Years Eve 2008. Steph became a sounding board and support system that has allowed Matt to develop Vino into what it is today. Matts background in the restaurant industry and growing trends on the east and west coasts sparked a desire to add a little something more to the wine shop. Matt started by adding educational classes and wine dinners. The goal was to give customers a place to come and have fun with wine. Steph wanted the chance to offer something unique to the community she grew up in. New Years 2014 started with a big addition to the Vino Family: Vino Cellars at the Lake (formerly the Gourmet Grocer), Bistro 58 and The Loft Lakeview Suite. With the addition of the new store, bistro and suite, Steph has become more active in the day to day operations of the store in her hometown of Kimberling City. She brings a wealth of knowledge of the area and a true passion for not only the businesses but to bring something unique to her hometown.
