A new vintage owner is being uncorked at Blend, a wine tasting room in downtown Bozeman @ 31 S Willson Ave. Aloys Scheer has recently taken over ownership after departing from his role as the Head of Food & Beverage at the Armory Hotel.

Scheer comes with a rich background as a French sommelier and has an impressive resume within the wine circles of California, Bordeaux, and Bozeman. He says he's ready to shake things up with an innovative approach to wine selection and a menu that introduces a slice of France to Bozeman.

Changes are planned over the next few months, featuring a new team, including a renowned French chef, and a lineup of dishes that promise a unique taste journey. Through the transition, Scheer and his team confirm that Blend will keep its doors open Monday through Saturday from 4pm to 9 pm, with evenings from Thursday to Saturday livened up with live music and events.
