    I really like Casellula. I also like Zampa and 'ino, although service at Zampa wasn't as warm as it could have been.

        Bar Veloce is a good option if you really don't want to go far at all. Bar Stuzzichini on Broadway at 21st is also good and not that far of a trek. If you are willing to hop on the subway, Terroir Tribeca and Ten Bells are both popular among the geekier wine set. Blue Ribbon Bar attracts an industry crowd late at night.

          It's small, but I love Bar Jamon in Union Square.

            +1 on Bar Jamon. Very good tapas and a robust selection of Spanish wines..

            A good, but easy subway ride away (2 or 3 trains) is Vintry on Stone Street in FiDi. (Exit @ Wall street). www.vintrynyc.com. Expensive, but v good. Can get noisey when the Wall Street children are released. You may well find other interesting spots along the one block pedestrian street--about 12 restaurants within a small radius.

                Bar Veloce serves only Italian wines, IIRC, but the selection is good. The food is basic and so-so.

                In the nearby West Village, Gottino has a well chosen, again mostly Italian wine list and good small plates. It is on the pricier side.

                Otto has a very long wine list with a range of quality. I've had some mediocre wines, there, as well as very good ones and they don't always correlate with prices. IIRC, there aren't many seats in the bar area. For the most part, patrons stand at bar tables and lean.

                For just pleasant places without necessarily a stellar wine list or great food, Soccarat Paella Bar in Chelsea has a friendly wine bar adjoining. Turks and Frogs in the West Village is very friendly and low key. I've had some awful wines there, though.

                  The Tangled Vine -- Amsterdam and 81st St. -- Worth the trip uptown because not only is the wine list extensive and interesting, but the food is superb!
