Tasted & Approved
One of the things that sets 56 Degree Wine apart from just about every other store is the simple fact that we personally taste and approve nearly every wine we sell, selecting only those wines that we feel are excellent examples of their type, region or grape - always with an eye towards value! We never outsource our decisions to the press or other outside critics, preferring instead to personally know the wines we sell so we can better communicate with our customers and find wines that truly meet or exceed their expectations. We travel every year to get first-hand knowledge of new vintages, new releases and new growers, as well as taste with those whom we have had long-standing relationships. We also greet hundreds of winemakers from around the world regularly in the shop to taste and learn about their wines. We do have a preference towards organic and biodynamic production, although many of our growers are not necessarily certified, many are practicing some of sustainable winegrowing with the goal of making wines that express their grapes, terroirs and traditions in the very purest sense. The team is headed up by Chris Cree, one of only 31 Masters of Wine in the US, who is happy to share his love of wine, food and people (and over 30 years experience) with all of our valued clients. We hope you will visit us online or in the shop and get to know a little more about what makes 56 so special!
Our Cellar Defenders™ are affordable, delicious wines to drink everyday while you wait for the gems in your cellar to mature (and to keep guests, friends and family away from your stock of aging classics!) Personally selected with the same care and attention to quality and their higher priced counterparts, and we spend more time and get as big a thrill) in finding these deliciously affordable gems as we do our cellar worthy gems. Search the site by price and region or grape variety to see our listing of great, affordable everyday wines - Cheers!
One of the best new trends in the wine and spirits business is the resurgence of small batch artisan distillers. Much like the micro-beer business that came back after years of consolidation, craft distillers are popping up all over the country with an incredible assortment of Gins, Vodkas, Rums and Whiskeys. We are taking the same approach we do to wine, tasting and selecting some the very best. Click here for the very latest arrivals!
