What We Are About




“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.” – James Beard

Having first encountered wine on European travels, our desire was to open a shop that offered wines that were meant for the dinner table all of us appreciate the intersection of the wine glass and the fork (or chopsticks) at the dinner table.

We enjoy cooking and gathering with friends and family around the dinner table.  Whether a simple soup or salad or a more complex gourmet affair, a glass of well chosen wine adds to the occasion.

Unlike some stores, The Caviste offers a curated selection of wine focused on small traditional producers.  We stock those that we have tasted and look forward to taking home to share with family and friends.

Questions we ask:

“Is the wine for a meal or on its own?”

“What are you cooking?”

“How many people are coming?”

“Are we invited?” Just kidding here, but . . . . .

We constantly have wine open for tasting.  Another way to experience the variety of the wine world and share your own perception of the wine. The wines range in quality and price and offer the chance to “try it before you buy it” or to simply expose your palate to new wines.

Come in and let us help choose wines to pair with your upcoming special events, casual get togethers or mid week dinners.  We enjoy the challenge of pairing old favorites or finding new discoveries to match a meal of choice.
