Aardvark Wine & Beer was established in 2022 by Donnie Austin and Megan Cavanaugh. Donnie, a former engineer-turned-sommelier, brings a unique blend of technical precision and wine expertise to the table. Megan, with over two decades of experience in the arts, adds a creative touch to the venture. They started Aardvark to be more than just a place to buy wine. It’s a community hub where people gather to learn, create memories, and take part in memorable events. You’ll primarily see Donnie at the shop, but Megan and their two kids make an occasional appearance.
