Wine Bar Grand Opening Adds New Dimension to Greek Restaurant

The owners of The Greek restaurant and University Wine Company have paired up to launch a new wine bar inside the restaurant, at 102 E. Clinton Ave. in State College. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Monday.

The bar will offer a variety of wines — including Lion's Roar Red and Lion's Road White — produced at University Wine Company's Centre County facility. Jeffrey Proch, the company's principal, is excited about the new arrangement with The Greek.

This is a win-win for both businesses,” he said. “Patrons of The Greek will be able to purchase a bottle of wine to go with their meals.”

The Greek currently permits diners to bring their own wine to enjoy with their meal, and this will continue. The ability to buy wine at the restaurant now provides a level of service not previously available.

University Wine Company will benefit from the exposure it is likely to receive from its relationship with the restaurant,” said Proch.

The Greek is owned by John and Lisa Dimakopoulis, who also own the Original Waffle Shop.

We are looking forward to a wonderful relationship,” said John Dimakopoulis. “This allows us to offer our customers an added convenience. Both The Greek and University Wine Company are family-owned businesses that can support one another.”

We love producing fun, high-quality wines to share with our friends, family and customers,” said Proch.
