Corbeau Wine Bar first announced it would be setting up shop on Morrow Ave in Trussville’s Entertainment District over a year ago. Now, after much anticipation, we can finally raise our glasses and toast to its opening. 

A family-owned-and-operated business, Corbeau is co-owned by sisters Elizabeth and Mary Martin, their husbands Mark and John Martin, and friend Dean Maio. All are Trussville residents.

“This is a dream come true for all of us. We’ve poured our hearts into it. We wanted a great place for people to eat, drink and relax with friends.”

When you step through the doors of Corbeau, you’ll be met with an open floor plan filled with clean white tables, colorful seating, an impressive bar and a casual, yet sophisticated vibe.

You can leave bougie at the door, because Corbeau’s atmosphere is a balanced mix of sophisticated and casual.

“We want to offer a first-class experience in a polished, casual environment. Nothing pretentious, nothing bougie. We want to welcome everyone in the community.”

Mary also added that they wanted to create something that was very approachable and made wine less intimidating.

Now, on to the main highlights. Here’s what else you’ll discover at Corbeau:

  • Full bar with cocktails, beer + wine served by the glass
  • 48 self-service wines on tap
  • Retail section with a broad selection of wines from Old World and New World to France, Italy, Napa + South America
  • Menu featuring small plates + charcuterie

“Charcuterie boards are like snowflakes. A lot of people have them, especially in this demographic of industry. Ours is very impressive to look at and is modestly priced with first-class meats and cheeses, and a lot of imported items.”

Dean Maio, Co-owner, Corbeau Wine Bar

Corbeau’s charcuterie boards will change often depending on the season along with what’s hot, new and fresh. 

Now about that wine on tap…
