South End Wine & Beer
Our Wine Selection
Our wine philosophy is simple: we like tasty and unique wines from small producers. Our space is limited, so we personally taste and carefully hand pick every wine on our shelves. We admire and support sustainable, organic and biodynamic producers who believe in letting the personality of their grapes & land shine through. We stock small grower champagnes, made by producers who grow their own grapes.
We strive to meet winemakers in person and whenever possible to visit their properties to gain a more complete idea of the winemaker’s philosophy, the terroir, the weather, and the local foods and cheeses. Julie Cappellano, our wine buyer since 2004, has visited wineries, winemakers, and cheesemakers in France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain and Portugal. We are also proud to offer rare wines specially chosen to pair with our cheeses, like our selection of wines from the Loire Valley, and from the Jura and Savoie.
Because many of our wines are obscure or rare, our goal is to make them easy and accessible to you. Giving us an idea of wines you already like, or the types of foods you will be serving your wine with will help us to find the perfect wine for you. Ask us about our favorite wine and cheese pairings! For information on our wines, questions, comments, or to place special orders, please feel free to contact our wine buyer at email@example.com.
