Although customers often swear loyalty to nearby Greene Grape, gentrified Fort Greene should be able to accommodate Olivino for affordable bottles too. The snug space has (surprise) pale-olive-green walls hung with local artwork, plus a portrait of namesake Olive, the owner’s pet pug. Roughly 300 $10 to $20 picks such as Long Island’s Wölffer rosé and South African chardonnay fill most racks. There’s also a range of well-priced sparklers from Lambrusco to the sweet Jaillance to bargain favorite Charles de Fère. Ports and a few high-end champagnes are tucked within a grille-front wooden cabinet.Free Tastings
