“I am a boat owner and kept driving by this little store, decided to stop in as my wife hates the wine I keep buying from Costco…. I told the owner what my wife likes in a wine “full body, not sweet, dry but not too dry, not too fruity, etc.” without any hesitation he recommended 3 different bottles of Cabernet…. all around $20 each.
I bought all three hoping that my picky wife would at least like one of them. Well she loved them all… I have gone back and bought more, and will continue to buy more. Nice service, nice shop, easy to get to if your in the area of course. I believe the prices are really good as well. I see some low priced wine, so if you don’t have picky taste I am sure you will get some great bargains as well.”

“The selection is amazing, but the prices are unreal! The owner is clearly in the know, always has great recommendations, and prices a lot of wines less than $10. Cheaper than a grocery or a liquor store, and much more personable. It’s always worth a visit!

“If it can be found in a grocery store, It will not be here. Owner Robert Gelmen has been in the wine business over 30 years and it shows. He prides himself on providing hard to find brands such as Rochioli (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), and even has Avalon Cabernet at a ridiculously low sale price.
If you are not a wine person, You know you can come here on any budget and Bob will take care of you. You will walk out with a wine so good, your date will never know how cheap you are if you take off the price tag. But if you are willing to pay for quality, he has an entire wall of upscale wines that score well above 90 on the grading scale that will not disappoint even the most finicky and refined palette.
There is a tasting bar onsite, and pleasant outdoor seating. Call up Bob for your next party and he will provide onsite tastings for a very low price. He has a great personality and will make it a fun event for you and your guests.
There are monthly specials, always new finds and sales, 10% off on any 6 bottle purchase, and free delivery on orders over $100. Stop by on the weekend and there is always a tasting or event for something fabulous. Call ahead and find out what is going on this week because some events are so popular that you must make a reservation. Whether you are a demanding wine snob or a clueless wine rookie, Bob Gelman of Grape Connections will take care of you. Most places just want make a sale but for a man as passionate and knowledgeable about wine as Bob, its about more than that. He wants the best for all of his customers whatever their needs may be. Open 10-7 Monday through Saturday.”

It’s a very personal thing to buy wine. Each of the owners gives you all the help you need in choosing the wine that will please you. There is a wonderful range of prices and wines, with very nice specials always. I learned a lot about wine here, even without going to the great tastings.
