Main Street shop opens wine cellar

Sage Gourmet owners Laurie Bakke and Chrissy Filka have opened a lower-level wine cellar stocked with wines from all over the world. Many of the bottles are from small vineyards and are not available at area supermarkets.

"We have had so many customers asking us to sell wine. We couldn't resist the opportunity," Bakke said. "There hasn't been a good selection of wines available on Main Street for a while."
"We have truly enjoyed building our wine selection with the help of Keith Dalbec," Filka said. "He has been so generous in sharing his vast knowledge of wine with us."
The shop will host wine tastings from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 24, and will hold a grand opening on Friday, May 30.
Sage Gourmet, at 416 N. Main St., is a kitchen store featuring unique kitchen items, gourmet foods, wine and wine accessories, cookbooks, gifts and bridal and shower registry. For information call 828-595-2236 or visit
