Roanoke's Wine Gourmet Changes Hands

Wine Gourmet in Roanoke has been bought by Brian G. Powell.The business will continue to operate at 3524 Electric Road in Promenade Park Shopping Center and its employees will remain with the store. Former owner Kimberly Eakin will continue as an employee.

Powell says, “For the time being, it will be business as usual. The company has been successful for nearly 10 years and I am excited to become part of a winning tradition in the Valley.”

The new ownership plans to focus on greater selection and will hold additional wine seminars, wine travel opportunities and special events with wineries. Powell says, “At this point, I am exploring the plan to offer more variety in the under $15 category and expanding our luxury collection of wines.”


  1. I love Wine Gourmet and wish it continued success with the new ownership, keeping Kimberly is a wise decision I feel. Thanks for the article Dan!

  2. Looking forward to meeting Brian and continuing a wonderful relationship with Wine Gourmet
