Side by Side in a Family Business
Jamie’s Wine Bar started as an idea between Jamie Hormel, the current owner of the Wrigley Mansion, and her nephew, Michael Appleman. They are passionate about wines – drinking, of course, and learning while always keeping it fun and approachable. Pair that with a drop-dead gorgeous lounge inside a spectacular historic setting with 360-degree views of Phoenix, and you’ve got a stunning place to hang.
Michael is behind the bar, choosing an impressive array of premium wines by the glass to serve his clientele. Whether his guest is a novice or aficionado, he will always have something exceptional and unexpected to expand the palate. And, don’t be surprised if he remembers your flavor profile on your return visits. Michael holds the prestigious CSW title, a Somelier I certification and had a successful career in wine sales.
You’ll quite possibly run into Jamie as she entertains friends and family at the bar. This new space is especially meaningful to her and her three children since her late husband’s namesake, Geordie’s Restaurant and Lounge, is adjacent, keeping old memories close and creating new ones all the time.
