Prince George’s County Council Vice-Chair Deni Taveras welcomes Era Wine Bar, a family-owned business, to District 2, which she represents. Located in the heart of Mount Rainier on Rhode Island Avenue, Era Wine Bar features curated wines by the glass from underrepresented regions and a wide range of global small plates.
Vice-Chair Taveras says this new business is an exciting addition to a growing community.
"District 2 continues to experience unprecedented economic development, which means more opportunities for small, local, and minority-owned businesses. Era Wine Bar is the kind of high scale, locally owned venue that our residents have been asking for - a cultured ambiance with an array of beverage and food options. Era is a welcome addition to our community, and I look forward to its success in Prince George’s County.”
After making Mount Rainier their home in 2018, business owners Michelle and Ka-ton Grant opened Era Wine Bar in November following years of traveling, studying, and experimenting with food and wine from around the world. Recipes are developed with a culinary team reflective of the owners’ heritage and upbringing in South Africa and Southwest India.
Era Wine Bar is in the historic Singer Building and joins the thriving Gateway Arts District along Route 1. Vacant for over 30 years, the Singer Building was restored in 2018 through the collaborative efforts of Council Member Taveras and other partners, including the Redevelopment Authority and the City of Mount Rainier.
