Our wine list has been cultivated over the past 15 years – some of the wines we have are out of production and not available to purchase. If you are interested in one of our wines, the best idea is to take a photo of the labels on the front and back of the bottle and bring it to your favorite local liquor store and ask if they can source the wine for you. Often they can locate the same wine or a different vintage or else they can offer a comparable wine for you to enjoy at home. If you don’t have a local store that you frequent, you can always try 109 Cheese & Wine or Ancona’s in Ridgefield, both are very familiar with our wine list.
