Built in 1839 for shipchandlers Slate, Gardiner and Howell, our building was later converted to a bar with rooming house above (read: brothel) in 1882. After that, girls were replaced with fish, with 70,000 pounds of it - a jet's worth - in three freezers at any one time.
Now we stock over 400 wines, ranging from small, family-run vineyards to the most well-respected and sought after winemakers and also including a wide selection of bottles under $15. Every bottle in the store has been hand-selected.
We also offer an equally well-considered array of wine-related accessories, from super-sturdy titanium crystal glasses to antique French corkscrews - all selected by Rebecca Robertson Pasanella, former Home & Decorating Editor at Martha Stewart Living.
