I stopped at East End Wines to pick up some bubbly for a girls’ movie night my friend was hosting. (We watched Sense and Sensibility, then Pride and Prejudice. We’re hopeless romantics. You do remember my hopeless crush on Mr. Darcy, right?) It was a Friday evening, and I was lucky enough to pop in when they were holding a wine tasting.
The place is gorgeous… it’s a beautiful white house on east 12th Street.
The wines are shelved from wall to wall, and there are also select beers and liquors.
Sam, the resident sommelier/wine buyer, helped me choose a perfect pink bubbly (Torre Zecchei sparkling rosé) as well as a reserve bourbon (Corner Creek) and an organic gin (Tru 2). I’m so excited to try that gin! They had plenty of whites, reds and pinks.
Everyone was really friendly and helpful, and they created a customer profile for me so that I can keep track of what wines I’ve purchased. They hold free wine tastings on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4 – 7 pm. Stop on by!
