THE HAWTHORN BOTTLE SHOP & TASTING ROOM is an inviting, down-to-earth wine experience for Helenans and the many visitors to the downtown area. Expanding on the concept and success stories of Helena’s taprooms, The Hawthorn is a place to fill your wine hooker and have a glass while you wait. It is a place to meet your wine (and beer) drinking friends after work and it is a place to shop for and enjoy wine from around world, small batch beer, and specialty meats and cheeses.
We offer a broad selection of wines from around the world at a range of price points and emphasize a selection of bottles for $10 and under. We have new bottles open daily to sample while you shop. We carry craft beer focusing on small production breweries including obscure foreign brews and popular local drafts. Guests have the option of purchasing additional provisions to take home - that perfect bottle, along with specialty meats and cheeses, olives, nuts and honey. You can also have your wine hooker filled with our special selection of wine on tap. We will guide you through our unique selection of wine and help you find the perfect bottle to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
We offer a variety of wines to purchase by the glass (out of the bottle and the tap) and have a fun and interesting selection wine flights. All of these wines are available to sample. These offerings can be enjoyed at our 8 seat bar or various tables during the day and evening, and cheese and charcuterie including house made crackers, dips, and spiced nuts are available for pairing. If you are in the mood for something a little different, you can try one of our tasty wine or beer cocktails or warm up with a cup of mulled wine.
The Hawthorn Bottle Shop & Tasting Room is a comfortable, unpretentious venue for people to relax, sip, and celebrate downtown Helena.
