HONORABLE MENTIONS

Shubie’s Marketplace

The wine philosophy at Shubie’s has served them well for over 40 years: extraordinary wines made by interesting people, many of whom come to store themselves to share their love of the grape with customers. With unique wine tastings nearly every weekend, Shubie’s is often packed with oenophiles who can always count on owner George Shube, affectionately known as Marblehead’s “walking Wine Spectator,” to help them pick out the perfect bottle. A wide selection at all price points ensures a pizza wine is just as phenomenal as an anniversary wine. Shubie’s clever, informative newsletter touts the latest finds from far-flung vineyards, organic producers, and George’s latest obsession.

16 Atlantic Ave., Marblehead, 781-631-0149, shubies.com

 

Wine Connextion

With a focus on making wine approachable for their customers, the Wine Connextion’s motto is “eXcellent wines at eXceptional prices.” A tasting station gives you the chance to try before you buy, and themed events like a recent “90 Points and Above” tasting are extremely popular.
