Share this Post:

Founders of a new Mayfair winery presented their plans — and their wines — to supportive Irving Park neighbors this week.

Meta Wine plans to open a wholesale wine operation along with tasting room and shop at a cavernous former ice warehouse at 4300 W. Montrose Ave.

Meta Wine founder Walter Clements, general manager Jennifer Crowley and head of operations Peter Reale pitched their plan to neighbors during an Old Irving Park Association meeting this week.

The winery signed a lease for the 14,660-square-foot property Nov. 18. They expect to open the wholesale operation in the next three or four months. The shop and tasting room plans are still a little while off as the owners search for an architect.
