Sisters Wendy Worden and Julie Curry are partners in a new food and wine experience by the name of Wendy’s House, 126 Sebrell Ave. in Wilmington.
Wendy’s House is a quaint pink cottage off Oleander Drive, impeccably decorated with sophistication and whimsy in mind. There are multiple rooms to enjoy a curated selection of wine, cheese, fine chocolates and other accompaniments such as crackers, nuts and charcuterie.
Worden, who has owned several galleries and retail home furnishing stores in the past, said she wanted to create a space for guests to feel at home while e
njoying a drink and snack with friends.
In addition to several interior gathering spaces, Wendy’s House also has a spacious enclosed patio.
Wines from around the world and at all price points are available by the bottle or glass and guests can pour a taste or a full glass from the preservation and dispensing WineEmotion system.
Wendy’s House also carries beer from Mad Mole Brewing, where Worden’s husband Chris is a partner.
Worden and Curry have plans to create a full venue space at Wendy’s House to accommodate events of all sizes, from weddings to showers and birthday parties. They are working with a landscape architect to connect Wendy’s House to two other nearby buildings that they own to create a greenspace that flows between each of the buildings.
While still in the permitting phase of that side of the business, Worden and Curry hope to be able to begin booking events at the venue space by the end of the year.
Wendy’s House is currently open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
