Spice Wine Smoothies, the newest innovative concept to debut at Bell Tower Shops, will host a grand opening celebration on Saturday, May 12.

Spice Wine serves chilled, refreshingly sweet smoothies infused with top-shelf wines. Non-alcoholic smoothies also are available in addition to hot and cold-brewed coffee, pastries and nitro coffee, which is cold-brewed and infused with nitrogen gas before being served frothy and bubbly from the tap.

“Here we are doing wine differently,” said general manager Robert Christman. “Come see and enjoy your favorite wine smoothie flavors – it will knock your socks off! If wine isn’t for you, then you can enjoy our nitro, cold brew and hot coffee.”

On May 12, Spice Wine will be giving away a free bottle of wine to the first 15 customers ages 21 and over who are in line at noon; a purchase is required. The store also will be serving hors d’oeuvres and pastries to guests while raffling off a prize.

Custom-built, burgundy-colored display walls at Spice Wine are accented by a diverse collection of red and white wines, offering an ideal café-like setting to sip a smoothie. All wines on display are available for purchase. Spice Wine has a unique partnership with wine suppliers and distributors, and the store can place special orders for expensive, hard-to-find wines by the bottle or case.

Spice Wine is located in Suite 213, between Omaha Steaks and Cheshire Cat Fine Toys. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, please contact Spice Wine Smoothies at 239-565-8027 or email SpiceWineSmoothies@gmail.com.
