  1. Crush usually carries some.

    1. brooklyn wine exchange on court street and atlantic ave in cobble hill has it.

      1. In Manhattan:
        Crush
        Union Sq Wines
        Columbus Wines
        Mister Wright Fine Wines

        In Brooklyn:
        Gnarly Wines,
        Uva Wines

        1. http://www.wine-searcher.com/ - very handy website for such things.

          It appears Mister Wright Fine Wines has the largest variety of them, but if you're looking for a specific varietal / vintage, check winesearcher.

          1. I've gotten it from FreshDirect (by way of Union Square wines). Personally, I found the stuff undrinkably sweet and unpleasant. I poured most of a $20+ bottle of wine down the drain.

            1. thanks for the quick replies guys. have you tasted multiple by Scholium and do you have a preference? I've only tried one.

                I especially like the "Prince in his Caves" style- I find them almost impossible to describe.
                Union Square seems to have the most choices, in my experience, though I've never been to Mister Wright...they do seem promising.
                Note that you can buy directly from the vinyard, too:

                If you like this sort of thing-have you tried Arbois savagnin from Puffeney? Bar Boulud's had it by the glass the last couple of times I've been-it's one of those wines that when you order it they ask "have you had this before?" because it's so - different.

                  Thank you David, I followed your suggestion and bought a bottle of Arbois Savagnin.
                  Did you have it paired with any food in particular? thanks again,m

                    I first had it with an aged Comte cheese (also from the Jura region), which is the classic pairing.
                    At Bar Boulud I think it pairs well with the pates and sausages, especially the boudin blanc with truffled potatoes.
                    I've also had it with just Marcona almonds.
