About Us

Wine was made for food and food was made for wine. Come enjoy the best of both with us at the Wine Kitchen.

The Wine Kitchen Leesburg we have refined wine and food to the purest form and offer them to you in a simple, elegant and relaxed environment that should remind you of a party in a friend’s kitchen. Our Seasonal American Bistro menu offers all that is good about local, seasonal food through the lens of a wide ranging and creative menu. The cozy atmosphere provided by our 1840s era building creates an excitement and vitality while still remaining small and personable.

The option to enjoy over 40 wines by the glass and in tasting flights allows you the customer to try something new or enjoy an old favorite. We also offer a craft beer selection to please any beer drinker.

Our simple, delicious food and drink are a welcome respite for anyone looking for a fun place to enjoy fresh food and a great glass of wine.

Executive Chef – Tim Rowley

Tim lived overseas (Venezuela, Guatemala and Yugoslavia) for the first 10 years of his life.  The first job Tim had working in kitchens when he was 16 as a dishwasher at a retirement community.  What was supposed to be a summer job turned into a love for everything kitchen.  After graduating from Baltimore International College in fall of 2005, with an associate’s degree in professional cooking, Tim worked at The Center Club, a prestigious private business club on the harbor for two years followed by positions at Vermilion, Bibiana and his first sous chef job at Tallula . Directly before joining us at the Wine Kitchen, Tim was the head chef at Room 11 in Washington DC.  Tim chose to join the Wine Kitchen family so he could be closer to the farms he loves to use in his cooking.

General Manager – Andrew Grantz

Born in rural northeast Ohio, Andrew grew up roasting pigs on his grandparent’s farm and (slightly later in life) drinking homemade wine. Tending bar while studying economics in college led him to discover his love for hospitality. He came to the Wine Kitchen in 2015 after running the beverage program for several corporate restaurants. Andrew is excited to return to his rural roots and his combination of corporate experience and love for local, simple ingredients paired with great wines makes him a perfect fit for us.

Sous Chef – Zach Sampson

Hailing from the great state of Louisiana, Zach brings creole flavors and a sunny disposition to the Wine Kitchen.  Zach can make a delicious gumbo faster than you can blink an eye and create a lunch special out of mushrooms and chocolate using two sharp sticks.  Zach is the best cook in the kitchen and has abilities far beyond his years that we are lucky to have at the Wine Kitchen.
