2019 Best Wine Shop

Urban Grape

Hadley and TJ Douglas, Urban Grape’s married co-owners, developed an innovative method of organizing wine—and then wrote the (literal) book on it. Dubbed the “Progressive Scale,” their novice-accessible, demystifying approach organizes the shop’s myriad bottles by body (light to heavy) rather than region or variety, making it easy to find a favorite robust, biodynamic rosé; or rich, regal red.
