WASHINGTON TWP., Montgomery County — The Zink’s Meats of Centerville store at 41 Marco Lane is planning to add a wine shop.
Melissa Metzger and David Hoffer of West Alexandria, who took over ownership of the meat shop in July, have applied for a liquor license and hope to open Zink’s Meats & Fine Wines later this year.
The business owners are hoping to rent a 600-square-feet space next door to the existing meat shop on Marco Lane just off of Ohio 48/Dayton Lebanon Pike just south of Centerville to accommodate the wine shop. They are also considering moving the business to another location along Ohio 48 that would accommodate the meat and wine shops, Metzger said.
“We want to help teach people how to dine well in their own homes,” Metzger said. “You don’t need to go to a restaurant and spend oodles and oodles of money to get a fine-dining experience.”
Zink’s Meats sells prime and choice cuts of beef along with pork, Amish chickens and seafood. Metzger said she is planning monthly wine-and-food tastings that will allow customers to taste prepared meats with different wines. She said the shop will stock wines “to suit all tastes,” ranging in price from under $10 to $200 or more. The wine shop also will carry premium cheeses and a variety of popular and craft beers, Metzger said.
Zink’s Meats currently employs five. Metzger said she expects to hire a few more people when the wine shop is up and running.
The Washington Twp. meat shop is no longer connected to the Zink’s Meat Market in Franklin.
