Monday night, the Town and Country Planning and Zoning Commission approved the final site development plan for the new winery and full-service restaurant which is being touted as unique to the St. Louis area.
Cooper's Hawk Senior Vice-President of Development Ron Dee tells Patch, the 9,000 square feet establishment will offer 265 seats inside, plus approximately 85 outdoor seats on the patio by the fountain.
Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant was founded by Tim McEnery in 2005 and the St. Louis location will be the company's fourteenth U.S. restaurant, Dee tells Patch.
He said Cooper's Hawk is headquartered in Countryside, IL and makes its own wine there. However, the grapes come from around the country, including from California, Oregon, Michigan, Washington and New York.
The Town and County location will offer only the Cooper's Hawk brand of wine and the company makes 50 different varietals of wine.
St. Louis area patrons will find a 1,500 square foot Napa-style wine tasting room, a barrel room, a retail shop and a full-service restaurant that includes over 50 entrees and an extensive dessert menu.
"Every entree on our menu is paired up with one of our wines," Dee explained.
Bottles of wine run from $14.99 up to $37 per bottle, and can also be purchased in the winery's retail shop. Cooper's Hawk also offers a wine club membership for a monthly fee of $18.99. Dee said those wines can be picked up from the wine shop or customers have the option of having them shipped for an additional charge.
Private dining rooms will also be available for rental and the restaurant will offer valet parking.
According to the restaurant chain's website, it currently has 11 locations in five states and plans to open four more locations, including the Town and Country location.
