Artisan Wines, Cheeses, & Beers

Our mission at Punta Gorda Chocolate & Wine is to expose our beloved patrons to the sublime, celebratory experience that world-class wines, craft beers & gourmet cheese brings and deliver a level of quality and small-town customer care not found in mainstream stores.


Shaped with a sommelier’s palate, Punta Gorda Chocolate & Wine showcases distinctive, extraordinary wines from small-batch vineyards around the globe. Our owner & sommelier, Patti Haley-Herndon, tastes every wine that comes into the store in search of the purest versions of every wine type we can represent. What is so much fun about our wine – is bringing to you the finest wine grapes of any given country; grapes that most of our patrons have never tasted or even heard of. Whether you enjoy dry or sweet wines, ice wines, dessert wines, fortified wines, etc., we will introduce them to you through our recommendations or through our Saturday Wine Tastings. We are here to serve!
