What You'll Get
Before it was tamed, the wild grape was the scourge of the valleys, mocking the looks of recently sheared sheep and running away with farmers' sons. Drink to the fruits of cultivation with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of wine at Grapes The Wine Company in White Plains.
Framed by cubby-holed walls containing more than 1,500 bottles, the extensive selection at Grapes The Wine Company has made its way from the world's vineyards to the hands of local oenophiles. Written up as a 2009 Best Wine Shop in Westchester Magazine, Grapes' wine list contains everything from red Burgundys like French Lapalu Beaujolais Villages 2009 and South African Guardian Peak cabernet sauvignon Lapa 2006 to offbeat blends like Australia's bombastic Two Hands Gnarly Dudes 2007. Warm up insides with carefully curated vino and the knowledge that, for this wine merchant, sharing still means caring; on Fridays and Saturdays, Grapes hosts free wine tastings, open both to experienced sip-and-spitters and those who believe Burgundy is for finger painting.
- This White Plains fine-wine dealer is an oenophile’s dream, carrying hard-to-find and small-production vintages like Domaine Romanée-Conti (Burgundy), Château Petrus (Bordeaux), Screaming Eagle (California), and Harlan (California). – Westchester Magazine
- Owner Daniel Posner has a great palate, so his selections are impeccable. Prices are always very fair. It’s worth getting on his e-mail list. – Glenn Vogt, Westchester Magazine
