New wine shop opens in Union Hill- Kansas City Star
By Joyce Smith
The new Underdog opened its doors Monday night with little fanfare.
But a steady stream of customers filed in as the word got out.
Ryan and Jenny Sciara took a 970-square-foot space at 2984 Gillham Road, on the first floor of the new McGee lofts.
Underdog, which opened in April 2014 in the Crestwood Shops, specializes in wines from family-owned, small batch producers. The owners said they taste thousands of wines a year to bring the best wines at different price points. They currently have more than 400 selections, as well as artisan spirits, craft beers and bean-to-bar chocolate bars
Underdog also will have a monthly wine program. Members can select from several wines and spirits at a variety of price points with add-on options.
Hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Underdog’s Crestwood neighbor, Cafe Europa, also is opening next door to Underdog in the McGee lofts.
