We're working on a feature for our August issue about the transformation Camelot Cellars is getting thanks to new owner Janine Aquino, and we can't wait to check out all the changes. I'm most curious about the planned winemaking lab. Fun!

The public can get a first glimpse at the reimagined urban winery during a reception at the Short North space on July 6. Here's the full release:



Janine Aquino, new owner of Camelot Cellars and fourth generation wine professional, is hosting a grand re-opening reception Wednesday July 6, 6pm-9pm. The evening will include live entertainment and hors d'oeuvres from Edible Columbus, Food Embrace and other local food purveyors. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase wine by the glass at special pricing and there will be a drawing for a Camelot Cellars Wine Making Experience valued at $200. The re-opening event is open to the public and valet service will be available for guests.

Camelot Cellars is currently open however the business is undergoing a radical transformation back to the essence of an authentic winery. The interior will soon reflect a vintage modern twist with Tuscan & French accents infused with local custom made tables & expanded wine bar. Retail offerings now include wine selections from around the world available for purchase by the glass, by the bottle and as your own handcrafted wine experience. Flights of wine are also available. Additional improvements include the winemaking lab, private wine tastings, and a larger event space.
