We are incredibly excited to to introduce Vino Loco’s new owner, Dara Wong. Also the owner of Shift Kitchen and Bar, Dara has a passion for pastry and a penchant for perfection, both of which she further developed while working for some of the most notable names in the industry.
A business management graduate of the University of Denver, Dara boasts an impressive resume thanks to time spent alongside culinary legends such as Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mckinnon-Patterson of Frasca Food and Wine (Boulder, CO). She has also worked for guest chefs Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park’s (New York, NY) and Marc Vetri from Vetri (Philadelphia, PA).
Prior to launching Shift, Dara served as the general manager of Flagstaff’s own Tourist Home Urban Market. A Division I swimmer for the University of Denver, Dara spends much of her free time in the water, hiking and hitting the slopes.
Our mission is to share our passion for fine wine in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere, to create a meeting place where everyone feels welcome and leaves feeling satisfied, & to provide a wonderful experience by offering a generous selection of wines, beer and friendly, attentive service.
