2010 BEST Wine Shop

Central Bottle and Provisions

We like to think we know wine. But like 99 percent of the population, we really just like to drink it. Thank heaven for Liz Vilardi, the nose-in-the-know at sparkling new shop Central Bottle. While her knowledge of wine is encyclopedic, she and her staff take a decidedly non-snooty approach to tasting and selling it. Explain what you’re after, and they’ll even help you pick out cheeses, cured meats, and house-made appetizers to nibble along with it.
