Best Wine Stores in New York, NY

Almost all the neighborhoods in Manhattan, New York, have more than their fair share of top-quality wine and liquor shops.

No matter whether you are seeking a name brand or a boutique vineyard label, you will find a superior selection of wines and spirits as well as outstanding customer service at any of these locations.


Astor Wine & Spirits - East Village, NYC

Astor Wine and Spirits is the address in Noho for the finest selection of liquor and all things related. In business, since 1946, Astor is very much a part of the New York landscape. People come here from as far afield as Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx to shop for spirits and attend the store's weekly wine tastings and special events. Astor is certainly not your average liquor emporium, that's for sure. After years at their old location, Astor recently moved to the historic Devine Press building. This remarkable edifice has stood at the corner of fourth and Lafayette Street since 1885. The old world period charm has been left intact outside the building's façade, for all to see and admire.

Astor Wines

But inside the huge 11,000 square foot store, everything is modern and state of the art. Astor specializes in bringing you organic, bio-dynamic and natural wines. The buyers here just love to work with grape farmers who respect our environment. When you shop for wine, spirits or sake here, you will see for yourself what the Astor difference really is. Delicate wines that are sensitive to wide swings in temperature are stored at 57 degrees in the cool room. This gentle handling and attention to detail gives you better-tasting wines. Most of the shop's organic selections are also kept in the cool room. If sake is your guilty pleasure, then Astor is definitely your place to shop. They carry nearly 200 of the world's finest artisanal sakes. These delicate brews are kept at a comfortably cold forty degrees, both inside chillers as well as the, you have got to see it to believe it, storage cellar.

Chambers Street Wines, Tribeca, NY

At Chambers Street Wines the friendly and knowledgeable staff tastes, re-tastes and debates every label that they sell. No matter how well established the vineyard may be, owners David Lillie and Jamie Wolff want to be sure that the aroma, taste and quality you expect in a bottle of wine is always there. This lovely and quaint little shop, was born out of David and Jamie's love for naturally-made wines from small, artisan producers. Say goodbye to the convenient but oh so pedestrian selection of wine that you may be used to at your local supermarket or big-box retail liquor store.

ChamberWines

David and Jamie's store stocks some surprisingly tasty and affordable wines from the Loire Valley, Burgundy and the Rhone as well as Italy's relatively unknown Piedmont region's vineyards. After returning from an eight years of living in France's central Loire Valley, Jamie returned to New York. He met David when they found themselves working at the same wine shop. Discovering that they had a great deal in common, Jamie and David decided to go into business together and create the type of wine store that they would feel comfortable shopping in.

One of their more interesting product choices is the sampler case. Case selections range from $150 to $ 250, and they're well worth it! The red sampler for example, features 12 wines from all over the world, with the emphasis on wines that are organic.

ChamberWines 2

A less expensive and always fun to drink option is the Tribeca six-pack, which is a mix of reds, whites sparkling and Rose selections, all personally selected by the Chambers Street staff. By the way, they don't just do tastings here, you can attend wine lab, Chambers Street Wine's version of a workshop. These seminars feature best selling authors, wine critics and wine-makers. Each wine lab session is forty-five minutes in length and there is always time for questions to be answered. You might just get some hands-on wine-making experience, as well. At Chambers Street Wines, the vibe is warm and the wine flows freely.

Frankly Wines - Tribeca, NYC

Frankly Wine is a shop that just about everyone can feel comfortable in. You don't have to be the wine critic for the New York Times to be able to get something good out of your visit. Taking a few minutes out of your day to chat with owner Christy Frank is time well spent. The personable Christy brings a great deal of wine experience to the table, having  worked for seven years at Moet Hennessy USA, the wine and spirits division of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton.

FranklyWines

Christy put in many years traveling across the country to visit scores of vineyards and wine stores. It was always in the back of Christy's mind to open a retail shop. In 2007, Christy finally gave in to temptation and Frankly Wines made its debut. The cute motto for her shop is "Fine Wine. No attitude." At Frankly Wine, you don't need to know a secret code word to be treated with respect. If you're not conversant in wine geek talk, that's more than okay. Christy and her team will not only educate you, they will also show you just how much fun, wine can really be.
