Proprietor

MATTHEW AMARAL

A lifelong resident of Barrington, Matt always dreamed of owning a business. Back in 2009 Matt began the public process to end the prohibition and bring a different kind of retail to Barrington. In November of 2011, Matt was awarded the first ever Class A Liquor retail license in the town, and March of 2012, Grapes & Grains opened its doors with the mission to clearly set itself apart from everyday liquor stores where price is parity.

 

Matt has been exposed to many levels of service within the industry ranging from Marriott, Walt Disney, Capital Grille, Sysco and The Providence Hospitality Group. He has a passion for food and wine and Grapes & Grains allows him to share this passion in his community.
