Appellation Wine & Spirits: New to NYC

As the wine trend continues to explode we've brought you a slew of articles that have ranged from topics such as solar powered wineries, to synthetic vs. organic corks, to the wine barrel folding chair. We've even talked about recycled wine glasses you can use to drink your organic wines from. Now we'd like to introduce Appellation Wines & Spirits, the first wine shop in New York City that focuses on selling organic/biodynamic/natural wines. Owner Scott Pactor (formerly the assistant wine director at Balthazar) opened his store in Chelsea last month with the belief that "winemaking is an expression of the winemaker and their land and passion." He strongly promotes wine education and has a bookshelf stocked with books ranging from viticulture to cooking. Each night guests are invited to share a new bottle from Appellation's inventory from 5:30-7:30. Can't find what you're looking for? Pactor will specially order a bottle for you and arrange for a wine consultant to deliver and actually pour the wine for you and your guests. Á votre santè!
