Sleek and minimalist in décor and design, Nolita Wine Merchants, which celebrates its first anniversary this month, is a tiny store located in a tony part of town –NoLIta (named for its location North of Little Italy). But, don’t let its size fool you. Although the square footage is admittedly small, the walls are beautifully lined with a well edited collection of interesting and handcrafted wines. Accordingly, while Nolita Wine Merchants is a wonderful neighborhood wine store, it is worth a trek to check out the treasures on its shelves.

If you’re looking for mass produced, commercial wines, you’re out of luck, but if you want wines from boutique wineries from across the globe, this is your place. This is also not necessarily the place to find old familiar “friends” (aka bottles of wine that you know and love), but rather, to explore novel regions and lesser-known producers.

Partners Pablo Goldberg, Isabel Martinez and Tulio Vero are joined by Sales Manager Bryan Leung in selecting which wines to stock, guided by their joint passion for wine and desire to share this appreciation with others. In this regard, their line-up of Spanish wines includes bottles from Bierzo and Monsant, while their Italian portfolio includes four wines from Sicily as well as selections from the Marche, Lombardia and Umbria. Similarly, their USA selection includes such producers as Au Bon Climat (CA) and Barboursville (VA) along with a Syrah from Oregon’s Applegate Valley AVA. Moreover, despite their smaller production levels, the wines are reasonably priced, making it easier to splash out on an unusual wine and find a new gem.

They also make it easy to discover such wines with the numerous free tastings they hold at the store weekly – generally on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons. For example, earlier this month, they featured a trio of wines from one of their importers, while in October the store welcomed Chateau Biac’s Yasmina Asseily for a tasting of this Bordeaux property’s reds.

With a carefully curated portfolio of fine wines from around the world, you are sure to find a bottle or two to pique your interest and whet your palate.
