Ball Square Fine Wines

2011 Best Wine Shop

There are glossier retailers of rioja and champagne. But Ball Square’s supreme approachability has us bubbling over. Once a perfectly respectable neighborhood store, this shop has gradually expanded into a wine-lover’s heaven, with staffers that make education—not the upsell—their mission. Whether you seek something for the cellar or something you can drink, um, right now, it’s impossible to walk out unsatisfied.
