The bottles that make up Thief Wine's diverse inventory are not stolen, but they may as well be. The shop's name—a reference to the long tube or "barrel thief" used to sample maturing wines waiting to be bottled—reflects the air of mischief shoppers experience in encounters with otherwise inaccessible wines that makes each of the shop's selections feel like the product of a thrilling cellar heist. The fruits of Thief's careful wine curation decorate the walls of Thief Wine's two locations with more than 650 selections, which mix familiar labels with artisanal up-and-comers from around the globe. At each location's wine bar, certified sommeliers pare down the hulking inventory to about 30 essential bottles, which slosh into thematic tasting flights or full glasses to flank small plates of cheese and charcuterie.
You could call Vino 100 a wine boutique or a wine bar, but you might also view it as something of a wine library. Each bottle in the collection has been scrupulously cataloged according to the Wine Barometer system. Its tag decodes the complex flavors along two scales: flavor (dry to fruity) and body (light to full to solid). Buyers apply other selection criteria, too: the company guarantees it'll stock at least 100 bottles priced at $25 or less at all times, and that all those bottles will come from artisanal, limited-production wineries. Shoppers who can't wait to taste the evidence of the system's accuracy can take a bottle over to the wine bar for a small corking fee. Vino 100 also hosts wine classes and trivia nights to slake the thirst for knowledge.
Part wine bar, part shop, and part restaurant, Wine Maniacs is the perfect place to discover a new favorite wine. Staff members help visitors broaden their horizons while maintaining casual, easygoing spirits instead of putting on pretentious airs. And, in addition to pouring glasses at the bar, Wine Maniacs fills its shelves and cubbies with an eclectic, ever-changing assortment of bottles from around the world.
Meanwhile, the kitchen's American-style bistro cuisine complements the shop's wine selection. Dishes can include cavatappi pasta and lobster doused with sharp asiago cheese sauce, and hand-chopped, sashimi-grade ahi tuna burgers mixed with ginger, shallots, and sesame oil and glazed with wasabi-lime mayo.
