South Florida Boutique Wine Shops – Where to buy wine

The best wine finds are at boutique wine stores, independently owned and operated. The best, because of the individual attention and knowledge the proprietors possess, who are more than willing to share their wine savvy with you. These people live and breathe wine 24/7, their palates, understanding and wine familiarity are trustworthy. You’ll find gems and brands unknown, as well as wines that are off the grid; this is the beauty of shopping at these places, to take you on a wine journey around the world. Most often you won’t find brands that are on the shelves of your local supermarket, chain liquor stores or big box [retail] stores. Shopping at these wine stores is about the experience and the education, not about picking up that familiar name-brand bottle for $15, but rather a $15 bottle with history, meaning and taste. Most of these boutique wine stores also have tastings, seminars, and events which enhance your overall wine experience. Starting in Palm Beach Gardens and working our way south here is a list of independent one-store boutique wine shops worthy of you checking out.
