Having known Mitch (owner) and his wife Deb for many years you are not going to find a more knowledgeable and nice guy from which to buy wines. Store is well stocked with great variety.

Some wine shops are so big that you don't know where to start. Others have no selection at all. This shop is simply terrific. The wines are carefully and intelligently chosen. You might call the selection "well curated." The service is terrific. If wine is...More

This place is awesome! The owner is awesome and super helpful! Came in to get some wine shipping boxes and he hooked me big time in a time of need. Will be back for sure! The little dog is pretty darn cute also.

I am in Naples, FL and needed to urgently source a particular, highly-rated pinot for a dinner this weekend. I searched shops online all over the country. By the time I found the wines reasonably priced at a shop in Sarasota just a few hours...More

Mitch is amazing. Knowledge of wine is second to none. Very relaxed atmosphere. Not pushy. If a wine is in his store it's gotta be good! Great price range. Fantastic wine bar to try new wines. Highly recommend. Forget Total Wine and go see Mitch!!!

This is one of the most decieving wine stores I have ever been in. It looks small until you start asking Mitch for some advice. He has a significant inventory. Great old world selection and some hard to fine vintages. He is over the top...More

Stop by enough and Mitch gets to know you and your palate. He is always quick to mention a good deal on a bottle. He never tries to upsell you into a more expensive bottle.
