Give me wine or chocolate and I'm pleased. Give me wine AND chocolate and I'm in heaven. Lucky for me(and you), Rudy's Wine & Chocolate, a stone's throw from Parkview Field, has both!
I fell in love with this place at first glance. The establishment is in a renovated historic house, which exudes charm. Walk inside and knowledgeable and friendly staff are there to help you make your drink selection. And what a selection it is! Take your pick from more than a dozen Indiana produced wines and craft beers. Wine is available by the bottle, and in some varieties, by the glass. From sweet to dry, there is something for everyone.
My boyfriend and I bought a bottle of Pinot Noir to enjoy on the patio. Outside you'll find a welcoming atmosphere with plenty of seating. Insider's Note: be forewarned the patio can be smokey. This is a cigar place after all! I'm not a cigar smoker, but I did notice their humidor was quite spacious.
Now back to the chocolate. Rudy's sells DeBrand Fine Chocolates in a variety of flavors and sizes. Treat yourself or your honey for the ultimate Fort Wayne treat.
In short, Rudy’s is an ideal place to relax after work, spend an afternoon out with friends or meet up before an event at the ballpark. Rudy's is located at 409 W Brackenridge St. Hours are Tuesday - Saturday: 11am to 8pm and Sunday: noon to 5pm. Show them some love on Facebook!
