We are located on the east-facing side of the historic Smeede Hotel in downtown Eugene. Our front door opens onto West Park Street, where the Eugene Farmer's Market takes place every Saturday from April through November. There is metered parking within 12 feet of our front door, in the Lane County butterfly parking lot directly across West Park Street and in the city parking garage located on Willamette on the west facing side of the hotel. The Eugene Hilton and the Hult Center for the Performing Arts are both just across 7th Avenue to the north, less than a half block from our front door.

Hours of Operation

Sincere apologies for such restricted hours - I regret missing out on meeting anyone that takes the time to visit my small business. But to keep costs down I operate as the sole employee, and I have found that most of my walk-in business comes toward the end of the week, peaking on Friday & Saturday. Also, much of my early week is spent seeking out new wines and putting together the newsletter. This winter you'll find the shop open during the following hours:

11 am to 1 pm / 2 pm to 5:30 pm Tuesday through Friday

11 am to 4 pm Saturday

Friday wine tastings 5 to 7 pm & Saturday Wine Bar open noon to 3 pm. Tasting fee: $5.00 / Wine Club free (SuperPours and glass pours extra)

Also, please add your email address at the bottom of this page. We will send you a short weekly email newsletter on new wines, tastings and special events at Authentica.
