    There are many places you can buy wines, whether it's online or at a neighborhood shop. But we founded Vanderbilt Wine Merchants to be truly different. To make the joy of wine human and accessible by sourcing the greatest wines of the world at great prices, without compromise.


    Often mentioned as one of the top wine stores in NYC, Vanderbilt Ave Wine Merchants has become known as a destination for the top artisanal, natural, and benchmark wines. We are a small but experienced team, comprised of Certified Sommeliers, career Michelin-star restaurant beverage experts, and long-time wine buyers at the top stores in New York. For as much as we focus on sourcing the greatest bottles for you we put hospitality first and foremost. Working with you is our greatest pleasure.
