The Urban Grape is one of our very favorite places to shop for wine. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable which is wonderful and absolutely necessary because the store organizes its wines by weight. It can be a bit confusing for first time visitors.
There are wine tastings held in the store on Thursday and Friday nights from 5-8pm and Saturdays from 2-5pm. The Urban Grape has two unique Enoline wine tasting machines that serve small pours; you have to check them out and sample some of the 16 wines available. You can also part in a new wine trend: couples can create wine registries at the Urban Grape so that friends and family can help brides and grooms build a wine collection. There are always special events on the Urban Grape’s calendar so we’d recommend subscribing to the newsletter.
