Profile

Though this wine shop’s initial buzz in 2005 undoubtedly had something to do with one of its three founders being elite restaurateur Drew Nieporent (Nobu, Montrachet, Tribeca Grill), the store’s lasting appeal can be attributed to a uniquely straightforward design that makes its refined selection of lesser known producers easy to navigate: Every label is visible as each bottle is displayed horizontally via metal prongs. The arrangement would put a crick in your neck, if it weren’t for the accompanying description tickets dangling upright. (Notes can be taken home if you want to study the stats of your new purchase or contemplate buying an unfamiliar vintage.) Better yet, frequent tastings focusing on regions allow shoppers to sample complex flavors, not just read about them.

Delivery

Free to all five boroughs: Two-bottle minimum 47th St. to 79th St., East River to Fifth Ave.; minimums vary elsewhere.
