Best wine list in Fairfield County?
I am looking for a restaurant with a wine list that will knock my socks off. Lower Fairfield County (Norwalk - New Canaan - Stamford - Greenwich) is preferred.
Price is no object, I am looking for great wines, rare wines, regional and varietal diversity, and a knowledgeable staff.
I am also a HUGE wine lover! Probably the best combination of both would be Rebeccas in Greenwich. They have great food and a terrific wine list. Mostly Ca. but they have everything from Cult Cabs as well as hard to get Pinots. They also have a nice selection of 375s. I'm trying to do a wine dinner there in the next few months.
Rowayton Seafood also has a nice selection.
Thomas Henkelman has a good list but the food and wine are way overpriced. Same with Vallbella.
Go to Osetra - check out the wine list. Don't know the vineyard? That's OK because they have wines that are over the top - by the glass and bottle -- small vineyards - they have a resident sommelier and they don't gouge you. How cool is that.
While you are there, check out the small plates.
