Wine Madonna is celebrating its three-year anniversary on July 24. "Time flies when you're having fun!" say the owners, Madonna Metcalf, a certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers,  and Kris Radish, a bestselling author. "We wanted to create a unique lounge where people can relax and feel as if they have found a 'home away from home,' " they say.

Here are excerpts from their application for LocalShops1's 2014 Best in Biz Awards:

"People love to come to our bar because they feel at home and comfortable even when they are alone. We give out a lot of hugs and really care about our customers. We hold a lot of events and customers become friends and even feel like family‚Ķthe Wine Madonna family is huge!  It's also been amazing to watch St. Pete explode around us and that makes our decision to locate here even more gratifying."

"We donate lots of gift baskets to charity events and it's also important to us to let our customers know about ALL the other businesses in St. Pete. We are a community and when we work that way we all benefit. We also like to use local businesses for our tapas and events and everything we need to run the lounge.  It's also been our policy to team up with other businesses in everything from our Downtown Wine Walk to our cheese and chocolate pairings."
