Back Alley Wine Bar, Owner
Sheri’s bar and restaurant experience started at the age of 7 when she lived upstairs from her family’s business.
Never wanting to pursue a lifetime career in the bar business, she says, Sheri continued to work in the industry, serving tables, bartending and corporate training while she obtained her degree in nursing.
While studying to take her boards, she worked briefly in a small wine shop that did weekly tastings. This is where a lifelong passion for wine began. After 17 years as an ER, trauma and flight nurse, she decided it was time to get back to her roots.
Watching the Arizona wine industry take off over the previous decade, she realized that Prescott was in need of a wine bar that represented these wineries. That’s when the idea for the Back Alley Wine Bar was born. The bar opened in early 2019 and serves Arizona wines, wines from around the globe, and locally made craft beer and ciders.
Supporting Sheri’s other passion, the wine bar also has become a music venue with live music events throughout the week. Next for Sheri: Back Alley Cheese Bar — coming soon.
