We asked our lovely Sommalier, self-titled “wine geek” Savanna Ray, where she likes to have a glass around town.
I love Metrovino because they have the Enomatic Wine System. They have 90+ wines by the glass, and you can order by taste (1.75oz), glass (5.25oz) or bottle. They open some pretty cool stuff, too, because [Enomatic] preserves the wine for 30 days or more.
This allows you to get tastes of bottles that you might not normally be able to afford, like Grand Cru Burgundies, special bottlings, Chateau d’Yquem, expensive stuff.
I also love Wine Wednesdays at Paley’s Place. They do a choice of three individually priced flights with a complimentary mystery wine and special offerings to match from the kitchen. It’s really fun for wine geeks because if you guess the mystery wine, you get the whole flight for free. There’s a catch, though–you have to guess the grape varietal, where it’s from, and the vintage. Also, Paley’s Steak Tartare is the best in the city.
For more wine know-how, including the best pours on our list, catch Savanna at Wildwood most evenings.
