Like abuse? You'll find it here. – I purchased wine here once or twice. The person manning the store had made some recommendations in the past, which I was definitely not impressed by. However, the store is on the route where I take my 4-month old son for walks in his stroller. So I stopped in to grab a couple of bottles of wine in preparation for guests who were coming over that night.
I was in a rush to get moving, but I remained patient as I had to wait for the attendant to get it together to ring up the sale.
Finally, he manages to ring it up, but before handing me my change, he starts guessing at the relationship of me to the child in the stroller. Are you the grandfather? For the granddaughter? Etc., etc.
VERY RUDE INDEED! It's none of his business. He's not my friend and I gave him no indication that I want to sit around and chat, be his buddy, or have him make insulting remarks/guesses to me.
I'll ignore this place like the plague! Poor selection of wines and a terribly rude cheif salesman (or whatever he is).
Ideal for Wine Dummies OR Geniuses – Great selection, very fair prices, and the highly knowledgable staff definitely enjoys the opportunity to tell you about thier wines and teach you something about wine in general. The store is laid out nicely, the tastings are fun, not stuffy, not a problem with the place.
GO HERE IF YOU LOVE WINE – i love this place. linus is incredibly knowledgeable, while maintaining a very approachable demeanor. these folks love wine & want to share their fabulous gems with people who are open to learning & trying new things. they have some stuff that can be pretty difficult to get, too. one of the best wine shops in all of new york.
