About us:

"When you walk into wine-sense, you quickly discover that it's not your typical wine shop. And it doesn't want to be. For over nine years, Samanta Ettore, a native of Tuscany, and her staff have worked to give their customers a "sense" of how each bottle on the shelves can complement their lives. Through years of delivering wine education and traveling to vineyards around the world, the wine-sense team ensures that all customers – whether wine aficionados or people new to wine – leave with the right bottle. With additional culinary backgrounds, Sam and her team can also ensure that your food and wine pairings are perfect for any occasion.

When visiting winemakers come to wine-sense and at times end up leaving with bottles, you know it's a special shop. Winemakers understand what it takes to bottle a dream and know that their wine will only speak the truth about their efforts, their grapes, their land, and their history. wine-sense brings that to you. It's not just about the wine; it's about the sense of the wine.

wine-sense is an award-winning wine purveyor with a continually changing inventory that embraces seasonality, small production and new discoveries in the world of wine. This makes every visit to wine-sense a special occasion. If you want a bottle of wine, any shop will do. If you want the sense of wine, then wine-sense is your place."
