Best Wine Store: The Wine Spot

Everyone likes wine — even if you sometimes sort of fake your way through it — but not nearly enough of us know a shred of anything about the stuff. Some of it is red, some’s white. It’s good! But the Wine Spot, which can look intimidating in its great and varied selection, is a wonderful place to go to learn more about this fine nectar. You can pick up an old favorite, but do feel welcome to stretch your vino muscles a bit and experiment with a bottle that either “looks cool” or comes with the employees’ well-earned recommendation. Then the best part: Go home and drink it.
