Summary

Summary

New York has always been a city that enjoys great wine, but the wine scene has never been more vibrant than it is today. Longtime wine writer Matthew DeBoard sorts through New York's dizzying array of boutique vineyards, specialty shops, wine bars, and restaurant wine lists to unveil the area's premier destinations. From where to buy wine (the world's most prestigious bottles are available at Madison Avenue's classic wine shop Sherry-Lehmann) and where to savor it (TriBeCa's Bubble Lounge has a sparkling atmosphere to match its champagne), to auctions for rare vintages, the best tastings around town, and fabulous day and weekend trips to local wineries, The New York Book of Wine has it all! Book jacket.
