Fans of Eagle Rock’s Colorado Wine Co. may think they are seeing double. Signs for the Eagle Rock wine shop and bar now appear on two storefronts a few blocks apart on Colorado Boulevard. The double signage is part of a transition as the seven-year-old shop prepares to move from its original location in the 2100 block of Colorado Boulevard to a new home about three blocks west near the corner of Colorado and Rockland Avenue. The move into a former storage space with 25-foot high ceilings has been a long time in the making but it appears the new store might open at the end of this month, said Jennifer Morgan, who owns the store with husband John Nugent.
“We will be focusing on a new lineup of gifts and gourmet items ranging from chocolate to oils and salts as well as an expanded lineup of beers and 6 rotating taps,” she said via email.
The new store is moving away from many of the new Colorado Boulevard restaurants and shops that have opened to the east of Eagle Rock Boulevard. However, the new space is closer to the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts, which hosts frequent concerts and art openings, said Nugent.
“We will also be adding on draft beer for the first time,” said Nugent in an email (Nugent is also part owner of Sunset Beer in Echo Park) “We’ll have six taps (just as we do at Sunset Beer Co.) and the ability to have guest brewers come in now and then to do ‘tap takeovers.’”
