spirited gourmet belmont

I was waiting for the traffic light on Common St. in Belmont today, and saw a sign for the Spirted Gourmet Fine Wines and Specialty Goods in an empty bank bldg. I went on their website, and saw that they have a Winchester store. Anyone been? Is this a positive thing, or an overpriced place? Couldn't find anything on the board.

    I have been to the Winchester store numerous times and like it. Prices are about average though they do have a discounted section, and have discounts at each of their tastings. They have a good selection of wines and beers. They have a free beer tasting every Friday night, and a free wine tasting every Sat. afternoon (with usually 6-8 wines). Plus they sell lots of cheese and gourmet foods. Service is very good.

    The Belmont is tentatively scheduled to open Nov. 12

        Always nice to see one less bank in Belmont Center.... happy to have anything else.

        Aren't we a dry town, though? All the liquor stores that conveniently happen to be just across the border from Belmont (on virtually every major street) are going to suffer.

          Belmont just recently changed and are allowing one or two liquor/wine stores to open.
