Situated in The Village at Rahling Road, O’Looney’s Wine & Liquor boasts the first and only wine club in Arkansas. “It’s a gathering of great grapes and community spirit,” Jonathan jokes. “And it’s our mission to make the ordinary extraordinary.”
Jonathan Looney, the proprietor and certified sommelier & specialist of wine, spreads the gospel of fine wine at nearly every encounter. “I love the challenge of suggesting a wine that will pair excellently with crawfish etouffee, fried oysters or a rib-eye steak off the grill. Matching wine to the experiences elevates my craft.” He believes even the mighty cheeseburger deserves the perfect pairing.
This knowledge and expertise defines O’Looney’s Wine & Liquor from other retailers. Offering wines, beer and spirits with an intent that is clear: providing expertise to inform, educate and enthusiastically recommend wonderful wines for every occasion. “We are wine consultants helping people curate the contents of their wine cellar.”
This model has proven successful – O’Looney’s Wine & Liquor is legally legit. “Our business was born 21 years ago with a dream of drinking delicious wine.” However, this contribution spans beyond a storefront. O’Looney’s Wine & Liquor has a presence at many of the Capital City’s most beloved events. Whether it’s Wild Wines at the Little Rock Zoo or UA Little Rock and KUAR-FM – Jonathan is committed to supporting organizations that improve the landscape of Central Arkansas. “It is humbling how much our community gives – that continues to inspire me daily.”
