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 mission is to bring focus to the New York State wine regions and promote New York State distilleries and meaderies. We are a leading seller of New York State products, bringing together a variety of vineyards from the Finger Lakes, North Fork, Hudson Valley, & Brooklyn. Our customers have the ability to shop for wines from their favorite vineyards all in one place. Our goal is to be the premier NYS wine & spirit boutique for the consumers that love New York State and want to support local. Our New York State Wine Club is a collaboration of wineries from New York State where we educate on the wine, terroir, grape production, vineyards and the winemakers.
NY wines go beyond the sweet wines that some have come familiar with- Rieslings. There is so much more to explore-
Reds: Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Pinot Noir, & Gamay.
Whites: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Albarino, White Cab Franc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, & Grüner Veltliner, Viognier.
Rosé, Skin Contact, & Pet-Nats.
