Gordon’s Fine Wines & Spirits

If you love French wines, you’ll love Gordon’s. Wine director David Raines spends three months a year scouting the best from Burgundy, Alsace, and the Rhone—although he also showcases Italian reds and boutique Australian bottles, many of which you can taste on the premises. There are 3,000 wines in all to choose from (and free delivery within a 15-mile radius with a $100 order).
