A boutique wine shop like none other! A lot more than wine…craft beer, unique spirits, cocktail culture accessories and mixers. Best Bourbon selection around, biggest selection of local and organic spirits anywhere. Hand selected wines of high value and low exposure, everything tasted and chosen by our Sommelier owner.

Very helpful staff, wine tasting every day, a fun and unique experience. Events calendar on our web site with guided tastings, wine, education, art, poetry, music, private events available too.

A great selection of regional, American and European cheeses, charcuterie, foie gras, smoked salmon, caviar. Gourmet and specialty foods not found anywhere on Cape Cod, local and regional specialties, local and artisanal chocolates, Stonewall Kitchen, and more. Offering beautiful linens, melamine, glassware, picnic accessories, hostess gifts and other tabletop delights.

A little bit of Europe on old Cape Cod!

Stocked with all the right stuff! Specialty Wines, Liquor, Aperitifs, Cheese, Charcuterie, Cigars and related paraphernalia. A real Gem. Stop in and pick up light summer wines or prosecco or cognac for a different taste. These folks really got it going on !

Co-owner, Bob Shortsleeve greeted me and took me to their Spain section - to try something new. I ended up with a red blend called Can Blau, and I've been changed man ever since. Now... More
