POWELL — A new wine bar in downtown Powell is on its way to being a popular gathering spot for local wine enthusiasts.

In fact, the Powell Village Winery and Tasting Room, at 50 S. Liberty St., has had so much success since its December unveiling that it’s soon planning to open a new production facility about a mile away to accommodate more wine sales.

“I never expected it to take off as well as it has,” said Jeff Kirby, who, along with his wife Gina, owns the business.

He said the small-batch winery is similar to the popular microbreweries for beer.
