Don’t feel intimidated if you come in and feel you are out of touch with the wide selection of wines. Sal is down to earth and an open book to questions about wine. No question to him is a stupid question.
Care for an appetizer? Wine Merchants has a menu of special pairing dishes especially created for wine tasting. So, enjoy a single glass or tour several different wines with a tasty pairing treat.
At the bar, a chalk board with a list of weekly wines is selected by Sal himself to taste or purchase by the glass. Since there are so many good wines at Wine Merchants, the chalk board helps to narrow down the amount of choices within the overwhelming selection of wines from the store.
Have no idea how to taste or pair wine? Yes, wine can be complicated, even for an experienced wine drinker. Wine Merchants offers wine classes every other Monday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a reputable wine expert.
Wine Merchants also holds a wine tasting event usually every Friday and Saturday with a special selection of wines each week with weekly live music. Sit at the bar or on the custom couch in the lounge. There is plenty of room to bring a group of guests or enjoy alone and converse with others.
