Our Story


Our lifelong love of wine has lead us to open uva wine bar.  We've had this idea for years, but the timing is now right to make this a reality.  This venture combines all our passions...friends, travel, entertaining, and wine!  No matter your level of wine experience, uva is designed to be a place to explore, learn, and enjoy.  We are excited to offer this new opportunity within the community and hope you will come join us.  We would love to welcome you in and get to know you.  Cheers!

Liz Blakeley is from Rockland County New York and worked in physical therapy for over 20 years.  She enjoys cooking gourmet meals, hosting dinner parties, tasting wine, and traveling the world.

Alec Blakeley grew up in Texas and spent 26 years in the Army before retiring in 2011 and continuing work as a CPA.  His interests include watching sports, playing soccer, wine, travel, and Premier League football matches.

After meeting in college at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, we married in 1991 and have had many great adventures over the years.  Most have centered around our two girls, Jordan and Peyton, but many others have focused on wine.  We've been to vineyards in Germany, Spain, California, Croatia, France, New York, Italy, Greece, and more.  We are both WSET Level II certified and hope to share our love of wine with you.

COVID Information

This is important to us!

There is no doubt that we are opening in uncertain times.  However, there is no question about the importance of ensuring the health and safety of our guests and employees.  We feel it is vital that we directly communicate to you our commitment to making you feel confident of the highest cleanliness standards during your visit.  We will keep abreast of all required and suggested practices and will adhere to all state and local guidelines.  We are practicing social distancing in our table layout and masks are required per the state mandate.  Like everyone else, we hope these policies won't last forever, but we are prepared to plan for and implement them as long as necessary.   Thanks.  Alec & Liz
