Our Short Story

What's in a name...Bookshelf Wines? 

Books and reading have been important to us personally and professionally through our careers.  When choosing a name for our winery, we chose to honor this importance by combining two passions, our love of wine and winemaking and our love of learning or reading for pleasure.  

We are Niles and Sheila Fleege.  Read more About Us.  Follow our Blog.  Come to our Events.  Check out our Book Reviews.
