Wine Shops- Lower Westchester

ric z Sep 14, 2006 03:07 PM

I'll be a few days staying in Westchester just North of the city and would love to check out some of the best wine shops the area offers. High-end, especially Italian stuff A+ as is a large selection.

    Zachy's in Scarsdale.

    http://www.zachys.com .

    I also like Wine Connection in Scott's Corners. Smaler, but truly great advice and a nice, rural New England setting.

        I agree - Mt. Carmel has an excellent selection of Italian wines and spirits in all price ranges. They're on 187th in the Belmont section.

        Rochambeau in Dobbs Ferry is also worth a visit for a good and interesting selection of quality wine (www.rochambeauwines.com).

          Grapes in Rye, NY. They are extremely knowledgable, will order anything you like and are pleasant to visit with. In addition, they often host tasting that bring new and interesting wines to people who might not ordinarily branch out from what they already enjoy.

            Go down to Manhattan. The hell with Westchester stores. And I say this even though I have worked at some of the best such as Zachy's in Scarsdale and the Wine Emporium in Bronxville among a few others, and that friends of mine own other stores in Westchester.

            Boy am I going to get crap for saying this! LOL

              Try the Budget Liquor store on Old Tarrytown Rd in Elmsford, It's also known as Pickwick and Pindle. They have lots of interesting selections and are very helpful. Say hello to Dale the owner, very knowledgable and a nice guy.

                I've always found Zachys to be the best place to go, especially when they're running sales. Stew Leonard's in Yonkers has decent variety. JMF, what stores in Manhattan do you like?

                Zachys in Scarsdale for sure and also, in Mamaroneck, Sound Shore on Boston Post Road. Ask for Bobby, the owner. He has a keen eye for Italian wines. My DH is in the wine business and this is his input.
