A wine crafting company takes the place of Stationhouse Restaurant on Main Street.

Custom Wine Shop Coming to Stratford [Updated]

You choose the grapes, they make the wine.

That's how a town official described the new wine crafting company that will soon be moving into the former Stationhouse Restaurant location at 2505 Main St.

Karen Kaiser, the town's special projects coordinator, said the custom wine shop hopes to open in September and will operate similar to a brewery.

Kaiser said the wine will be made on the premises after customers pick out ingredients.

A few weeks ago, Stratford Patch asked readers (original story posted below) what they'd like to see move in to the location across from the train station.

Amazingly, not one person said custom wine shop. So, what do you think of the new business? Will you check it out?

A popular spot in Stratford for many years, shuttered its doors a little over a year ago.

"Everybody knew it and it was successful for a long time," says Robert Colgan, the manager of the building at Stationhouse Square.

Colgan contacted Stratford Patch this week with the request that we ask our readers what they would like to see move in to the spot on Main Street, across the street from the train station.

There's 2,200-square-feet of space up for grabs, according to Colgan, as well as a caboose that sits next to the building which can serve a number of functions.

So what would you like to see in the former Stationhouse Restaurant location, which is within walking distance of and Stratford Center? Another restaurant or perhaps something retail? Share your ideas below.
