Who We Are

            Our History

Colonial has served the Chesterland community for over 50 years– Originally a town grocer as much as a beverage shop- it moved to the current location on the south side of Mayfield road in 1989. The late ’90s saw Colonial’s transformation into the east side’s premier independent wine merchant. Colonial remains well known for its large inventory and discount wine offerings, come visit us to find out why!

Meet the Owner

I’m Wes!

I’m passionate about service and wine– it is the core of our mission here @ Colonial. Whether it is serving you a great value wine to enjoy by the glass or take home, or providing ongoing educational opportunities, or cooking a scratch-made meal, the customer’s enjoyment is the focus of my attention. I am a certified sommelier through The Court of Master Sommeliers.

With more than 17 years in the wine industry, I’ve had all the time in the world to learn about and taste my way through many of the world’s great wines- this breadth of experience certainly shows in our vast and varied inventory. I’m a committed lifelong learner– my hobbies include cooking and guitar- both of which play a part in the life of the shop as well!


I look forward to meeting you and sharing a bottle of wine!
