"Staff extremely knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming... selection is phenomenal. You can find good-to-great wines from $10-$$$. Many new wines to try from surprising locations around the world & old favorites. Also offers classes/tastings, wedding services, special orders. This is a shop for all - newbies and snobs will find something great here."



"Metro wines provided the alcohol for my wedding at Camp TonAwandah and they were beyond wonderful and helpful!! Kristen helped us choose what alcohol to serve, and then she was above and beyond in her service every step of the way! She allowed us to do an early keg pick up, AND delivery of the rest of the kegs and wine on a different day. The prices were more than fair and our guests were so happy! Highly recommend!!!!! And thank you again Kristen!!!"
