Front Street offers daily store tastings as well as tastings at local restaurants (Finch Tavern, Purdys Homestead, Jaipore Royal Indian). The cellar is packed with wines from a multitude of different countries and manned with a representative to explain each bottle. Choose among varietals from South Africa, New Zealand, and all over the world. And if you order a case at a restaurant tasting, you can get 15 percent off.
This wine and spirits shop, set in the 100 year-old former Croton Falls Metro-North station, complete with Italian tile, big chandeliers, and a hand-painted wine motif on ceiling, offers daily store tastings as well as wine events at area restaurants like Jaipore Royal Indian. The emphasis here is on affordability (15 percent discount on cases), food pairing, variety (each restaurant tasting features 20 to 30 varieties), and non-traditional selections.
