About


About About About
For those of you that are just hearing about us, we started Grapeful Ape in September of 2018 as a retail wine shop and wine club.  Our focus was and still remains finding value in wine from all over the world.  We firmly believe excellent wine does not have to cost a fortune.  We have traveled the world meeting generational winemakers, finding unique terroir, and exploring the most historical wine-producing areas so that we may hand select the best quality wines at the best prices.  We tend to gravitate towards organic, bio-dynamic and small production wineries, so rest assured you are getting clean, top-notch quality vino.  

Since the opening of Grapeful Ape, we have been talking about expanding our retail business to include a craft cocktail bar. With the support of our family, friends and loyal customers, we jumped in - head first - to do just that! And so it happened, that in December of 2019, we opened Ape Cave 'a Vin. Ape Cave 'a Vin is a specialty cocktail bar ran by the-one-and-only, Paul Calecas. His mixology skills are nothing short of a gift, and his cocktails will not disappoint! We also offer wines by the glass/bottle and beer, along with assorted meat and cheese plates. Our hopes are that when you visit, you feel at home, you feel relaxed, and you feel like family.

Salute!
Charissa Lovecchio & Anthony Lovecchio, Certified Sommelier
