Sona Creamery and Wine Bar To Open at 7th and PA Avenue, SE This Fall
Will Displace Sprint/Moto Photo at 660 PA Avenue, SE
by Larry Janezich
Owners Conan and Genevieve O’Sullivan have leased space at 660 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, currently occupied by Sprint and Moto Photo and hope to open their new creamery and wine bar concept there by November.
The outlet, inspired by similar Seattle operations, will be the District’s only onsite creamery and will feature the production and aging of a variety of cheeses as well as a boutique selection of Pacific Northwest Wines.
In addition to a café, the venue will have an education component offering opportunities to learn about cheese and wine in the café, at classes, and exclusive tasting events. The plan anticipates a glass front on the onsite cheese lab and aging rooms where patrons will be able to observe the production process. The owners expect that Sona will ship cheese nationwide.
