Vino209 Wine Cafe


Wine & Dine at Vino209. We’re known for our sophisticated, yet cozy atmosphere, exceptional wine selection, craft beers, coffee, small plates & flavorful light food choices for lunch, dinner or anytime in-between.

Owners, Denny & Kelly Sharp  are so excited to be a part of the Historic Valley Junction. Guests will enjoy the beautiful and historic relaxed atmosphere at Vino209, whether out for a night on the town, shopping in the district or stopping by after work with friends. Our 1,700 square foot cafe features seating for 50 guests in the Cafe as well as seating up to 24 in the “Tasting Room”.

The “Tasting Room” and parts of the Cafe can reserved for private events and for larger events we can use part of the Cafe as well.  We offer live music on Tuesday evenings and other special events year round.

The Café was been designed by Des Moines architectural firm FEH Design.  Architects Cory & Denny Sharp, along with Interior Designer Michelle Crambilt took special care to showcase the historic aspects of the building, using the natural brick as a major design element.  The stunning modern bar brings forth in the space the sleek sophisticated element that Owner, Kelly Sharp was seeking.  The moveable front doors will allow for the patrons to feel part of the fabric of the district and what is happening on the street.

We look forward to meeting you – Kelly & Denny Sharp

Vino209 will offer a relaxing, yet upscale atmosphere for our customers.   The Café has been designed by Des Moines architectural firm FEH Design, to synthesize the historic features of the 100-year-old building it will occupy with the functionality required of a successful, modern retail establishment.

The storefront will feature large glass operable windows that will draw the outside in and open to the outside to provide refreshing air throughout the café during the warm months. This design element will provide a strong connection to the activities occurring within the district and the fabric of the surrounding environment. Patrons will enjoy feeling a part of the events even while relaxing for lunch or a glass of wine.

The party room will feature seating for 20-25 guests and can be used for a wide variety of purposes including business meetings, wine tastings, birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, shopping parties, book club meetings and other social gatherings.
