Our Book Shop Goes Live!

You can visit our Book Shop here:

We are excited to announce the launch of our Book Shop. As you know, we specialize in two of life’s great pleasures: wine and literature. We’re passionate about reading and believe that books offer an unparalleled escape from the frenetic nature of modern life. Our inventory will soon be expanding to cover many genres, but we have (appropriately!) launched our wine department first.

We offer a wide selection of books for wine enthusiasts, students, and professionals alike, all at the most competitive prices available. Our titles range from entertaining wine literature to renowned reference books. We are an independent book shop, so when you shop with us you are supporting local businesses. Cheers!

Bacchus & Books Brings Out the Heavy Artillery!

Our very own Bacchus & Books was recently the site of history unearthed: a Civil War era artillery shell that has resided in the cellar for decades was secured by the US Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal team on Wednesday, February 5th. So unusual was this, that it made international news: the AP News Wire, the New York Times and even The Daily Mail in the United Kingdom!
