CoolVines Featured in New York Times!

Congratulations to Mark Censits and the CoolVines Team for their mention today in the New York Times! In today’s lead column in the Dining section, Eric Asimov talks about the new generation of wine shops, bringing interesting wines to customers in an unintimidating way. He mentions only three stores outside of New York City, one in Los Angeles, one in San Francisco, and CoolVines in Princeton!

Here’s the excerpt.... “The recent vintage of shops can be found in pockets of wine enthusiasm around the country, including DomaineLA in Los Angeles, Terroir Natural Wine Merchant in San Francisco and CoolVines in Princeton, NJ. But enthusiasm seems to burn hottest in New York City.” The full article can be found at:

I've said it once, and I will say again that Mark and his team at CoolVines are awesome! Mark has a great vision, and took a great concept and ran with it: To bring great, small production wines to the customer at affordable prices. One of the real beauties of Mark's vision is that a lot of these wines are drinking well now, but also have the stamina to last many decades in the cellar. Some of our favorite wines that we have picked up from CoolVines include 2006 Sine Qua Non Syrah Raven Series, 2005 Downing Family Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006 Leviathan, 2007 Domaine Yves Cuilleron Condrieu La Petite Cote, 2007 Gérard Bertrand Vin de Pays d'Oc Cigalus Blanc, 2007 Diatom Chardonnay Huber, 2005 Jean-Michel Guillon Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, and 2006 Iris Hill Pinot Noir, which was our 2009 house red.

That being said, check out both of their locations in Princeton and Westfield! They host tastings at both stores, on both Tuesday’s, as well as Saturday’s from 2PM-5PM! Check it out, and let me know what you think! Cheers! -F. Scott
