Wine is like leprechauns: it’s both sprightly and, surprisingly, made from grapes. Skip to the pot of gold with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of wine at Station Plaza Wine and Spirits in Bronxville.
Established in 1936, Station Plaza is a heady World Cup of international fine wines, hosting more than 2,500 labels from Argentina, Hungary, the United Kingdom, and everywhere in between. Use today's Groupon as a passport to the store’s hand-selected bottles, which span a spectrum of liquid spirits as wide as an immortal’s chalice is deep; for collectors and scavenger hunters, friendly staff members will be glad to track down rare or obscure wines that will send dinner-table companions into fits of envy. Cabernet connoisseurs tip a glass of the fruit-, spice-, and licorice-flavored bouquet of Vinedos Alonso del Yerro Ribera del Duero 2006, a Spanish spirit with a deep red texture ($26.99), and fans of white wine traverse Australia's fermented fruit with the Henschke Julius riesling 2007, a complex concoction that juggles floral hints, lemon flavors, and mineral notes with one hand while applauding itself with the other ($28.98). Fruit, rice, and dessert wines round out Station Plaza’s massive assortment.
Station Plaza Wine and Spirits
In 1936, nearly three years after the end of Prohibition, Station Plaza Wine and Spirits opened its doors. And so long as alcohol has remained legal, Station Plaza has remained on Kraft Avenue, its shop stocked with top-shelf spirits including brandy, tequila, and sambuca.
Though it has a wide selection of hard liquor, the store really specializes in wine. Its collection includes more than 2,500 hand-selected labels from around the world. Wine consultants can help narrow down a patron’s search for the perfect bottle by wine type, region, or producer, and they can even steer customers in the direction of more hard-to-find varietals or organic wines. The Station Plaza team also champions wines that rank in their top-rated category. The discerning criteria for inclusion on this list are taste and seasonality, rather than whether it stains your lips an attractive color.
