Thank you for 8 years! (& updates for our 9th ✨)
We celebrated 8 years earlier this month with one of my favorite sales that (I hope) had something for everyone. But yesterday (May 29th) officially marks 8 years of doing business on Fulton Street.
Our anniversary is a big day for me - I think about how much our little shop has grown. How our Brooklyn neighborhood, Clinton Hill, has informed my life (both in and out of the store).
And, this year especially, how grateful I am that this community encourages us to be unapologetic in expressing ourselves candidly: that trust has shaped how vigorously we communicate what we love, what inspires us, excites us. And, yes, sometimes what triggers us. That's trust.
Without it we could not be the business we are. My appreciation for you allowing us-to-be-us for eight years is endless - thank you.
There are a host of changes I would like to share going into our 9th year. Most of them simply make wine easier to receive: our first free national shipping policy, expanded NYC delivery zone and (!) even a 6 bottle discount. All of these exciting updates are below in detail.
One of the hardest but most important changes to make: reducing our case discount to 10%. It hasn't been an easy decision but, to be honest, costs have simply increased faster than our margin can support. It’s a little surreal; the rising costs touch everything from packing materials and insurance premiums to the simplest of maintenance needs.
This updated discount puts us in step with our peers in NYC retail but - far more importantly - it allows us to maintain our level of integrity in curating our inventory, supporting our team the way we believe is right (Healthcare, PTO, Paid Family Leave for FT staff) and taking care of our community. I appreciate your understanding around this.
Below you’ll see all the updates which we plan to begin next Monday, June 5th. Thank you again for all the support.
THE 1/2 CASE DISCOUNT
Sometimes there isn't enough room in the fridge for a full case - we get it. Take 5% off all orders of 6-11 bottles, 24/7. In-store, too!
And, take 10% off all orders of 12+ bottles with our updated case discount.
FREE SHIPPING FOR ORDERS $400+
The impact of rising shipping costs is real - for retailers, and our customers. We're really excited to be able to offer our first free shipping threshold ever: free for all orders over $400, nationwide (up to 12 bottles).
EXPANDED FREE DELIVERY ZONE
It also brings us great joy to continue expanding our delivery radius, from Brooklyn to Manhattan and beyond. Our next stop: Long Island City. Full details on zips with free delivery can be found here.
Note: order minimums apply for free delivery, and we've adjusted the Manhattan minimums to better reflect the costs of delivery uptown. We've also expanded options for paid delivery on orders below the minimum.
GET LEON CIRCLE - DELIVERED!
We're also now offering local Brooklyn delivery for our wine club, Leon Circle. Every month we share 3 bottles you might not have reached for on your own but you’ll always be proud to open.

THE UNDER-$25 MISSION CONTINUES...
We've worked hard to expand our inventory under $25 - now with 816 items in stock. It's not just about the economy (although, tbh, it's a consideration for us all); this is the price point that drives inspiration every day. And isn't that why we're all here?
