About The Village Wine Merchant.
At VWM, we believe that your enjoyment of wine should be a fun, adventurous, and satisfying experience.
Customers should never feel overwhelmed or intimidated by choices so we use our small size to your advantage. We're very selective. We taste everything and choose quality wines at all price points. Almost of the wines we sell are made by small, conscientious producers. We have great confidence in our selections and in this way we can eliminate the guesswork for you.
We don't believe that a "highly rated" wine is necessarily "better" than another wine just because it was reviewed in a publication. Everyone has different taste preferences and for us, wines are situational and seasonal. We want to help you find great quality and value in wines that you’ll enjoy.
The more you know, the better we can serve you. As such, we’re committed to giving our customers consistent opportunities to experience wine and spirits with frequent tastings, food and wine events, and educational classes.
At VWM we’ll work with you and your budget to craft the perfect experience. Our expertise in helping you choose from a carefully vetted collection can help you discover the right wines and spirits for your occasion.

Michael's Current Pick
Philippe Tessier Cheverny Blanc 2014. The Tessier Cheverny is an uncommon blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with a bright a and lively tropical note that reminds me of pineapple rind. I like it with sushi, grilled shrimp, or a lunch salad with grilled chicken breast.
Prior to working at VWM I always drank familiar things like Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio as my wines of choice. Now I love to experiment with wines made from different grapes that I would never have considered or known about before working here.

Paumanok Dry Rosé 2015. One of my favorite wines during summer is rosé and my top pick is the Paumanok Dry Rosé from the North Fork of Long Island. It is a fresh and bright rosé with a dry finish. It has enough complexity to stand up to summer picnic fare or to sip on its own.
