Monica Nenni & Mel Kutzera, Co-Owners of West Central Wine

Thinking back to where it all began…

With shared roots and connections to Middletown, Ohio, Monica and Mel set out to merge their professional expertise to bring a unique wine experience with a comfortable atmosphere and hometown hospitality to a long forgotten downtown storefront.  The location at 1120 Central Avenue sat vacant for nearly 20 years.  When the downtown square was once a covered mall the space was home to the All American Deli, and for many years before that it was a local shoe shop called Schiff Shoes.  People often share memories of a booming Downtown Middletown, and with each passing day we see the return of those times.  Since opening in October 2016, we've welcomed countless new businesses to the neighborhood and look forward to welcoming many more.  The people of this town are fiercely loyal and passionate about this place.
