Small Business Spotlight: Sip Owensboro

This week’s 'Small Business Spotlight' highlights a local wine tasting bar that allows you to explore dozens of bottles of wine for just a few dollars each.

Sip Owensboro began back in 2017 as a new business for a woman who loved to drink wine and wanted a place where her and her friends could do just that.

“When you walk in here, you kind of feel like you’re leaving kentucky," said Regan Neal, general manager of Sip Owensboro. "It creates an environment of a big city feel.”

And once you get there, the process is simple:

Purchase a card, load your money on the card, stick the card in a wine machine, chose from the more than 25 different bottles of wine, and then get your wine on.

“So the concept of the machine was really important," said Neal. "That was a super cool aspect, just for the fact that you can do a taste, because most people don’t want to spend $20-$40 on a good bottle of wine, so the machines definitely help you explore that pallet.”

You can get a taste of a $100 dollar bottle of wine for just a few dollars with their wine machines.They’ve got 28 different bottles to chose from, and even more behind their bar, and many of the bottles are local wines from the Bluegrass and Hoosier states

“Most of our local wines are the sweeter ones we do," said Neal. "We have Stonebrook, that’s from Kentucky. We have Bach’s Wine, and that’s based out of Louisville, and we have the French Lick wine. We do have a few bottles.”

Sip moved to their new downtown location back in 2019, and they say they’re excited to see business pick back up after some rough months during the pandemic.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
