Stephanie Kennedy-Mell opened Church Street Wine Shoppe in Huntsville, AL, with her husband, Matt, in 2014. They carry hundreds of wines, including many that were previously unavailable in the area, and offer tapas, craft beer, and wine flights at the bar. Ten nights a month, they serve a seated five-course tasting menu with wine pairings, and four times a year, they host a charity event featuring work by a different local artist. A second location, serving wine and bourbon pairing menus, will open in May in downtown Huntsville. Before opening the wine shop, Kennedy-Mell was director of strategic planning and process improvement for Kellwood, a large apparel manufacturer.
