About Barrel Room...

Rick and Mary Bygd have a passion for many things including each other, their families, traveling, the outdoors and wine. One thing they especially enjoy is sitting down after work and enjoying a nice glass of wine and good conversation. The opportunities to do this outside their home were very limited. So, in 2012 they established MR Wine LLC with thoughts about wine tasting or some kind of business venture around wine. They started putting together a business plan and got connected with a SCORE mentor. The day a realty sign appeared in the window of 320 Main, they thought perhaps it was a sign to get busy. Market research and a primary data survey confirmed that Menomonie was indeed ready to support a wine bar. In addition, they witnessed success with a similar business, Wine Guyz in LaCrosse, WI. The owner supported their ideas and confirmed a solid and successful business model. With the help of MANY, their dream becomes a reality in August 2014!

Their business philosophy centers on the customer and the community and includes the following:

  • To allow customers to enjoy a glass of wine and learn what they like.
  • To serve as a resource for wine education and recommendations.
  • To build and foster positive and professional relationships within the community.
  • To develop a reputation for excellent customer service, great selection, an appealing store environment and fair prices.

Barrel Room is a place for theatre goers, the after work crowd and those out for the evening. Barrel Room is a place to explore new things and discover new wines in a comfortable environment within an historic building in downtown Menomonie. Rick and Mary look forward to meeting and serving Menomonie area residents and visitors!
