“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Thoughtful, accessible, carefully curated wine selection with options in all price ranges; excellent selection of cheeses, a sprinkling of other fine foodstuffs (good bread, good coffee, olive oils and the like), with the lovely ambiance of a wood-burning stove. Don't miss the Saturday wine tastings!

“Hope this gem stays hidden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I almost don't want to write this and have people discover this place. It's wonderful... interesting wines, monthly tastings, excellent prices and great service. Once Max gets to know you (and it doesn't take long- not sure how he keeps it all in his head) you will get recommendations as soon as you walk in, plus he'll never let you buy anything you might not like. Often he looks at what I am about to buy, goes, "hmmm, you don't want that" and grabs something else. It's always good.

Plus- the coffee, the hot cocoa, the beer selection, cheeses, bread... it's all a treat.

“Its right for Blue Hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

As with most of Blue Hill, this is one place to walk and poke around. Many wines in all price ranges. And many you can't get just any where. Cozy and feels good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

We drink lots of wine and always appreciate the recommendations we get from Max, the owner. He points out the bargains and always has something new to try. Recommended!

“An Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

It's all about the atmosphere. If you want a snapshot into the local Blue Hill scene, go in to the Wine Shop and order a coffee and...wait. Colorful people and conversations, great cheese and charcuterie selection, nice wines. You could shop elsewhere, but how boring would that be?!
