Our Story

Barrel Thief Wine Shop and Cafe is Richmond’s best “cave a manger”, or wine store where you can eat and drink. Our knowledgeable staff will help you pack up a case to take away, walk you through the shelves to find the perfect wine for you to open in our cafe (at retail price), or pour you a taste from our list of twelve by the glass options. A selection of over 400 small production wines with a focus on a “hand’s off” philosophy of winemaking is where our passion is focused but we are more than happy to special order any wine available in our market. Our wine buyer is a Level 2 sommelier working towards Level 3 and travels the world regularly seeking out new bargains and exciting wines for our guests. After seven years in business, Barrel Thief has become a wine lover’s paradise and the best place in Richmond to taste, drink, and purchase great bottles from all over the world.



Private Tastings

All knowledge levels welcome! A member of our staff will walk you through a selection of wines based on your preferences. Light hors d’oeuvres make this a fun event for showers, office get togethers, networking events, and more. On and off site tastings available.

Private Events

We love to host events. Most of our menu items can be served on platters for any size party. Our front lounge is perfect for groups up to 15, we have a semi-private area for groups up to 25, and we are happy to rent our entire space for groups up to 70. Depending on day and time, most events start at $20/person which includes light hors d’oeuvres and two beverages.
