New wine bar to open at GSP in spring of 2019


A nationally recognized wine bar concept, Vino Volo MarketBar, will open spring of 2019 in Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP)

Vino Volo will make GSP the first airport to have its Vino Volo MarketBar, which will serve wine, beer, and gourmet food in a wine country casual and modern setting.

“We are looking forward to giving our customers an opportunity to experience Vino Volo and to have another choice for high-quality food and beverage at GSP,” said Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO.

Vino Volo was founded in 2004 and it has 44 company stores in 34 airports across the United States and Canada.

“Vino Volo is extremely excited to bring our new concept MarketBar to Greenville Spartanburg International Airport,” said Marco Di Bernardo, Vino Volo’s vice president of development. “GSP is the gateway to a burgeoning food and wine-savvy region and we intend to represent the best locally-inspired products and food menu items. We can’t think of a better airport partner to work with to launch our new brand in 2019.”
