Dandelion Wine


I popped into Jen A's local wine shop a while ago--Dandelion Wines in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She had raved about it to me a few times before we went together.

It's a super-cute spot just one avenue from the G train's Greenpoint Avenue stop.




Inside they have a nice, long chill case for your whites, and an even-longer display of room temperature reds, ros├ęs and more whites.



The staff are friendly and have put recommendations and easy-to-understand descriptions for all of their favorite wines. I'm not an oenophile, I just like delicious wines, and Dandelion makes it super simple to find those.




I was also delighted to find: WHITE PORT! I haven't found this since a few years back when Alfama owner Tarcisio Costa introduced us to it at a Murray's Cheese class (a port and cheese class). (Note: Alfama was one of my favorite places for years. The West Village location had to close in 2009 but it has reopened in Midtown East--stay tuned!)



I snagged the white port and a summer red and we headed back for some outdoor dining and drinking--what a delicious summer this has turned out to be! If you want something that's sure to be a hit at your next party, dinner, dinner party, etc, stop by Dandelion for a surefire winner!
