You would never expect to find as sophisticated a shop in a little coastal village. Max, the owner, really knows his wines and enjoys introducing you to wines that are most likely new for you. Lots of excellent values as well. In addition there is a superb selection of cheeses and olive oils. Service is knowledgeable and very pleasant. Also... More

Max and crew run a wonderful shop full of temptations which span the spectrum of necessary indulgences. Great wines, beers, cheeses, bread (fresh from a local baker,) charcuterie and oils, etc. The list is long. They have regular wine tasting sessions, but don't hesitate to ask for advice. The responses I've received have been refreshingly candid and honest. Not a... More

This is a funky shop, which I love. It has more than just wine, and every time I go, I find more, like bread, cheese, espresso, etc. I think I even saw someone eating what looked like quiche, though I'm not sure. Max is very helpful and knowledgable. If I don't find exactly what I want, Max can always recommend... More

I've been going to Blue Hill every year since about it's opening. Each year when we visit Stonington we stop several times to load up on wine. In my view, Max is about the best at recommending wines. He loves to help isolate wines that one will enjoy. Amazing place for a small town.

Great place! We go there for cheeses, granola, breads, local farm produce aas well as wine. Max is very knowledgeable and reliable with selections. As he say,s anybody can find you an expensive bottle of wine, but he specializes in finding those great bottles at reasonable prices.

Service is friendly and knowledgeable. We have purchased many good wines on their recommendations without breaking the bank. The cheese selection is lovely too and they will let you taste before you buy. Very intimate atmosphere in this lovely old restored building.

I have two new favorite wines, thanks to Max, the owner of this wine shop. With a few short questions, he steered me to a white and a red that turned out to be just what I was looking for. I wanted a low alcohol riesling and that's what he found for me, without giving me the usual line about... More
