Aries Wines & Spirits
An enoteca-style wine shop filled with soft wood tones, Aries Wines & Spirits was founded in 1984 by wine connoisseurs Tony and Andrea Russo. To this day, Tony and Andrea travel the world in search of premium products, tasting wine after wine and returning home with cases from regions such as Argentina, Austria, France, and Greece. The bottles that meet Tony and Andrea’s standards—and the ones that sneak under their noses by wearing fake mustaches—stretch across the shelves of their temperature-controlled wine room. A multitude of other spirits fills out the rest of Tony and Andrea’s inventory, ranging from vodka and rum to champagne and cordials.
