Mike Trebing’s dream to own a wine business has come to fruition. He said he purchased the location in Talega two months ago because he thinks it has “a lot of potential and opportunity.”

It was a 30-year love affair with wine, and I’d been looking around for the last year and a half to find a place,” Trebing said. “It’s kind of a second career for me, and I wanted to do something in wine.”

Originally working in television and film, he eventually moved into marketing for plant nurseries and large wholesale growers.

Most of the wines he sells by the glass and by the bottle are from California, Oregon and Washington state, but Trebing said he will also have imports from France and Italy as well as craft beers. Barnoa will eventually start selling paninis, soups and other food to complement the wine bar experience. Private events can also be scheduled.

It’s been sort of a transition from the old inventory and it’ll be a while before we have it all done,” Trebing said. “We want to be able to carry boutique wines and expand our bottle shop.”

Trebing and his employees are knowledgeable about their products, and he said that customers are always welcome to talk with them about the wine.
