I needed a specific bottle of wine whilst in the Village of Shorewood. Sadly, I made Thief my third stop because I thought it would be faster, cheaper, easier to procure said wine at one of the first two places I tried. I could not...More

Stopped in before dinner one night with my husband to look for some Austrian wines. Staff was very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Found a couple in our price range. Also did a tasting at the bar to discover some new wines.

We've moved and we miss the Thief. Great meeting and drinking place, but more that that great wine values carefully curated by the excellent Thief Wine team. Can you open a Thief Wine in Alexandria VA?

This is a common stop when my husband and I are in Milwaukee. Thief's staff is well-educated on their wine selections. The décor is sleek, and very clean. If you like to sample wines, they have extensive flight options!
