There’s nothing better than curling up to the fire with a delicious glass of red wine or having a few laughs with your girlfriends over a bottle (or two!) of white. However, finding a great bottle of wine can sometimes feel like searching for a needle in a haystack, which is why we’ve rounded up the top five wine shops just in time for the holiday season.

BevMax

Buying a fine wine doesn’t have to break the bank. BevMax is the go-to discount wine and liquor superstore featuring a wide range of wines at low prices. Whether you’re looking to try something new or want to stock up on your favorites, BevMax has it all from full-bodied reds to crisp whites. Try any one of the featured wines on its “Best Buys Under $10” list, such as Cavit Pinot Noir, Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno, or Riondo Prosecco.

Stamford Wine and Liquor

The friendly and knowledgeable staff at Stamford Wine and Liquor has been servicing customers for over 35 years. The quintessential neighborhood wine shop believes that good wines make for good times and we couldn’t agree more. Just recently, Stamford Wine and Liquor started its Wine of the Month Club, in which members can enjoy three preselected wines, included with a fact sheet and tasting notes.
