New Wine Shop in Windsor Terrace

There is a new wine shop in Windsor Terrace on Prospect Avenue near the Ft. Hamilton F train stop. It is just down the street from the Crossroads Cafe. I have not yet had the opportunity to go into the store but was wondering if anyone in the neighborhood has checked it out and if so, do they carry a decent selection of wine and/or liquor. I will definitely be going there soon since I strongly believe that if we want more of these types of businesses in Windsor Terrace, then we have to support them financially or they will go away. Windsor Terrace really could use more and better types of food and food related establishments.

  1. It's great. Still the same basic setup as the old one in that space, although I think that's changing, but a whole new attitude and selection. I kind of liked the old owners despite, or maybe because of, their surliness, but the new guy will give you a 2 minute description of any wine in the store, recommend comparable wines, etc. He seems to really know his stuff. I did a double take the first time I walked in there and heard someobdy using the word "grassy".

    1. I'm in there all the time. The have a good selection at all price points and the owners are knowledgeable. Well worth a visit.
