South Florida wine shops

#1 Post by Mike Reff » July 24th, 2019, 7:15 am

I seem to recall a store in or around Pompano beach that was more of a club then a store with old vintages for sale, however I have forgotten the name. Any local Berserkers who can help?

I am familiar with Total wine and ABC any others around?

Thanks

Wine Wave in Del Rey is good. And Wine Watch in Ft. Lauderdale is solid.

Not a club, but often discussed - WineWatch for high end in FLL

Wine Wave is my go to. They are priced on the high side for hard to find stuff ($135 for R lopez de heredia rosado), but they have best selection around. Went last week and grabbed Bedrock Pagani heritage 2017, Bereche Brut reserve, laherte BdB. They also have a fantastic selection of whiskey/bourbon. Their website is also great

I get emails every few days from Wine Watch and there have been quite a few times I've been tempted to grab an Allegiant flight just for some of their tastings.

Wine Watch is great especially for back vintage wines. Wide selection of quality fortified too which is hard to find in SOFL.

I really recommend Finding Wine (www.finding.wine). They've got a great selection of old hard to find Spanish wines, and Champagne... my go to place.They've sourced hard to find wines for me at great prices. Ask for Alyssa or Fabian, great people.
