Ahso Cellars opens its doors in Brambleton

A new wine and beer shop, cheese and charcuterie shop and tasting room — all rolled into one — is quietly opening its doors to customers today. The much anticipated Ahso Cellars has arrived in the Brambleton Town Center.

The Burn first told you about Ahso Cellars way back in late 2020. Chef Jason Maddens, the founder and owner of Ahso Restaurant, has expanded with a new, but related concept.

Ahso Cellars is just a couple of doors down from the restaurant in the center and will work as a sister enterprise to Ahso in a variety of ways.

The new store is a wine and beer shop. A large wall display holds hundreds of wine bottles with more on the way.

The display is set up with regions of the world down the left hand side and varietals across the top so shoppers can quickly find a particular kind of wine they are seeking.

There is also a bar with 10 seats and four more seats at tables in the window. Several high top tables with seats will be added soon.

Guests can buy a bottle of wine and enjoy it on the premises. Or they can sample up to 16 different wines available by the glass. There are several craft beers on tap as well. Wine and beer flights will be one option.

There is also a gourmet cheese display in the corner where you can purchases packaged cheese to take home. And the Ahso Cellars team will be making patés and charcuterie on site, which will also be for sale.

These are also the ingredients for a menu cheese and charcuterie boards you can enjoy whilst sampling the wines and beers. Other items such as paninis and flatbreads will be available as well.

The space is still being pulled together — new decor and elements will continue to be added in the coming weeks. But Maddens and Patrick Ryan, the GM at Ahso Cellars, will start welcoming guests today.

Their hours — for now — are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 12 to 6 p.m. Sunday and closed on Mondays. Ahso Cellars will also be available to host private events, with food being catered from Ahso Restaurant next door.
