Need plans Friday night that will take care of your wine shopping needs? Consider the Harlem Wine Gallery in Harlem’s Hamilton Heights.

New Boutique Wine Shop and Art Gallery Opens in Harlem’s Hamilton Heights

The Harlem Wine Gallery has opened in Harlem’s Hamilton Heights, according to a news release sent to HarlemGal Inc yesterday. The Harlem Wine Gallery, which is located at St. Nicholas Avenue and 148th Street, is owned by entrepreneur Ken Forte. Forte’s vision for Harlem Wine Gallery was borne out of Forte’s long-held disappointment with the quality of retail stores in urban communities. Inside the new establishment, the racks are arranged by region, taste and cuisine. Harlem Wine Gallery will also have free tastings and events several times a week. Stop by Harlem Wine Gallery soon. Details are listed below!

Harlem Wine Gallery
752A St. Nicholas Avenue at 148th Street

Hours of Operation: Daily from 1 – 10pm


What’s up with Harlem Vintage a reader asks?

Yesterday, a reader asked if we knew that the old newsstand on West 112th was ‘For Rent?’ Today, a reader is asking HarlemGal Inc., what’s up with Harlem Vintage? The reader explained that they were in Harlem Vintage recently and could not help but notice the “shelves just keep getting more and more bare.” Does anyone know what is up? Is Harlem Vintage letting their stock sell out to close? Or are they clearing out the store to make more room for Nectar Wine Bar ? I hope it’s the latter.

If anyone knows what’s up, give us the lowdown!



Meet Sugarleaf Vineyards and its tie to Harlem

Two weeks ago, I blogged about the top-selling wines at The Winery. When I wrote that post I was asked “where else can one purchase wine in Harlem?”  The response I quickly gave was Harlem Vintage or stop by for a drink at Nectar on Frederick Douglas Blvd and 120th Street. Soon after, I went through some of my old notes and emails, and I came across another option for Harlemites to purchase wine. Wha…la! And this option is linked to Harlem like the others.

May I introduce Sugarleaf Vineyards and Winery. Sugarleaf Vineyards is 100 percent wholly owned by The Bias’, who reside right here in Harlem with their two kids. They often commute back and forth to Virginia to manage their vineyard. However, their home base is a lovely brownstone in Central Harlem.

While the ingredients, barreling and bottling for Sugarleaf wines may take place in Virginia, they hold similar accolades as fellow Harlemite Marcus Samuelsson when it comes to White House honors and the Bravo TV Channel. Their 2008 Petit Manseng was served at The White House for the 2010 Governor’s Ball and their winery was featured in a recent episode of The Real Housewives of DC.

So if your interested in purchasing wines made by Sugarleaf, click here to order. They ship to New York City in increments of 3, 6, and 12 bottles. Or stick to the walk in plan, Sugarleaf is also sold at Harlem Vintage, Nectar and Red Rooster! Cheers!

The Winery in Harlem is moving

Due to a change in rent and needing more space, The Winery, which is currently located at Frederick Douglass Blvd. between 116th and 117th Street, is moving to 257 West 116th Street. Work is happening now on the new space in order for the move to be completed in about a week. Product offering will remain the same. The only things that are changing is location and the awning. When you come out of the B and C train at 116th, you will see the new Winery location on the northeast corner of 116th Street.
