Founded in 2016, The Gilded Grape has had a strong focus on local. Born & bred in Brooklyn, our proprietor wanted to add something special to the borough she was raised in. The Gilded Grape is a small boutique shop with a New York State of mind.
The shelves are filled with wines from Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley & North Fork- even as hyper local as Brooklyn. Not familiar with NY wines? Thats why we are here. We can tell you some of our favorites and walk you through the different varietals that grow in NY.
We have craft distilleries from all over the state- artisanal spirits such as gin, whiskey, single malts, amaro, and vodka. Don't worry, we have everything else too... But this place is your destination spot for getting hooked on NY. Welcome.
Our business philosophy and mission statement are simple with a strong focus on customer service, product education and anticipating the needs of a loyal, eager and ever-growing customer base. Being a small business we have nurtured and cultivated relationships with smaller New York State distilleries and vineyards. We focus on personal attention to customers with tastings, reviews and a staff educated and experienced in the wine and spirits realm. We pride ourselves on knowing what our customers like through personal relationships with them, but also what they might like to try. Anticipating our customers needs and tastes is integral to our success.
