Selecting a bottle of wine can be one of life's more perplexing experiences. To begin with, what kind? How much should you spend? And what's the difference between this Burgundy and that pricey pinot noir? Should you just buy the bottle with the coolest label? Or screw bottles. What kind of box wine is best? Get schooled on vino if you're a beginner, or shop the best selection in town if you're a veritable sommelier, all at Rozi's Wine House in Lakewood. Three generations of the family have run Rozi's for more than 70 years, making them the preeminent experts around these parts and a friendly, helpful bunch to boot. Browse their selection in person or online, and stop by for one of their special events and tastings, where you can learn how to swirl, sniff and spit with the best of them. Or just figure out what $10 bottle goes best with your spaghetti.
