Thief Wine earned the #4 spot on CityVoter’s Best Liquor, Wine and Beer Shops in 2009 and a rave review on Express Milwaukee: > * Since opening Thief Wine Shop & Bar at the Milwaukee Public Market last July, Bilodeau and his fiancee, Aimee Murphy, have garnered quite a following for their distinctive selection of eclectic wines that span the globe. Both Murphy and Bilodeau have impressive wine pedigrees that have given them access to resources and the experience needed to operate a wine shop and bar with such an extraordinary selection. – Sarah Biondich, Express Milwaukee
The bottles that make up Thief Wine's diverse inventory are not stolen, but they may as well be. The shop's name—a reference to the long tube or "barrel thief" used to sample maturing wines waiting to be bottled—reflects the air of mischief shoppers experience in encounters with otherwise inaccessible wines that makes each of the shop's selections feel like the product of a thrilling cellar heist. The fruits of Thief's careful wine curation decorate the walls of Thief Wine's two locations with more than 650 selections, which mix familiar labels with artisanal up-and-comers from around the globe. At each location's wine bar, certified sommeliers pare down the hulking inventory to about 30 essential bottles, which slosh into thematic tasting flights or full glasses to flank small plates of cheese and charcuterie.
