Glen-Ro Spirit Shoppe has been serving Monroe since 1972. Our expert wine specialists Larry, Roy, Michele, and Jon can assist you in choosing the right wine to complement any occasion and dinner. Our commitment to value and quality has made Glen-Ro well known through out the area.

Our selection spans the world; Roy has traveled to Europe, South America, and many parts of the United States searching for great wines at the correct price.

Come visit out beer selection - Unbelievable!!! - With over 1000 or so choices (cold and ready to go), you will not be disappointed. If you cannot find it at our store, we will get it for you.  Larry's expertise in a brew will make you mouth water.
