Ever daydream about opening a wine shop? Wouldn’t it be nice to hang out in your lovely shop all day, tasting amazing wines made by artisanal vintners worldwide, listening to a perfect mix of tunes from your personally-curated playlist, and chatting with all your wonderful regular customers who cherish you and your shop and your wine more than just about anything else in their stress-riddled lives?
That all actually could happen someday, but you actually have to get that shop open first, and that’s the part that will put any entrepreneur’s spirit to the test.
Vine Wine, a shop specializing in small production, natural, organic and biodynamic wines, opened last month at 616 Lorimer St. in Williamsburg, and they posted a fun piece capturing the chaos of the run-up to opening their doors. We think you’ll enjoy it: How to open a wine store in 10 easy steps.
Congrats to the Vine Wine crew on their big opening!
