Foursquare Tips

  • Each room is a labyrinth of gems that aren't easily found elsewhere
  • This is the best place to reliably find retail bottles of Fernet-Branca on the north side of the river.
  • If you're here consider running across the street to Savenor's for some locally sourced meat products to enjoy with your wine and cheese.
  • Walls of cheese next to walls of wine.
  • Great sandwiches!
  • Done died and went to wine heaven.
  • What's there not to love. Wine and Cheese! One stop shopping with an excellent selection of Wine Cheeses and other gourmet snacks.
  • Fantastic selection of Vermouth and aperitifs, but in with the wine, not the other liquor.
  • Very nicely curated selection of wines and gourmet products. Fresh bread sells out quickly, be warned
  • Seems like every week there's a pretty steep discount on one whiskey. Which is nice.
  • Fantastic wine selection, lots of unique accoutrements and thoughtfully made sandwiches if you're nearby at lunch time.
  • Get here early for bread.
  • This place is a one-stop destination for entertaining. A knowledgeable staff helps you pick out the perfect wine, and a large selection of cheese and meats will make your mouth water.
  • If you need help finding just the right wine/beer/liquor/cheese, all you need to do is ask. They rarely steer me wrong.
  • Much bigger than it looks wen you first walk in, and a really impressive selection
  • Fantastic wine and cheese selection.
  • Secret de Campane @ $7.99 a bottle is a great red wine for its price.
  • Great selection of wines, less typical liqueurs (Pimm's etc) and fruit liquors (calvados, kirsch and more)
  • Ridiculously awesome selection in the $20-$30 range for both French whites and reds. Italian wines not so much, but there's a little of everything.
  • Try Patxaran, if it's in stock. You may have to ask for it. Get some bread & cheese from their extensive collection.
