The Local Vine, a wine bar and shop, has closed says Capitol Hill Seattle Blog. A sign on the door at its Trace Lofts North location reads, "Sorry! We are closed," and CHS reports that the space is available immediately for rent. Commenters to the CHS post note that the University Village location of The Local Vine has a sign on its door that reads, "Restaurant Refresh Underway."
The Local Vine was founded in Belltown by two Harvard MBAs Sarah Munson and Allison Nelson in 2007. The McGuire building's demolition booted the business from its first Belltown home, two years ago. Since they had been planning a second shop in Capitol Hill, Munson and Nelson moved all of their operations there and opened in the neighborhood in September 2010. In October 2011, The Local Vine opened an outpost in University Village.
