This is a terrific local wine shop - fantastic selection and surprisingly affordable. The owner is great - very knowledgeable about wine and has greeted me by name since the second time I visited. Needless to say, I'm now a regular customer. So highly recommend, I'd give it another star if I could!

Very much worth the time to visit ‍‍... I found labels I've looked for for several years since leaving the wine country of California.  The couple who own the shop really know what they are doing ... Sophisticated without pretentiousness; the shop is a comfortable place to take a break from the day or just loaf over a glass of good wine and talk.
