Coolvines of Westfield NJ
For those in the know, the rest of us are utterly pathetic when it comes to choosing wine. Sometimes pretty names and cutsie labels are all we have to go by in the selection process. Thank goodness for Coolvines of Westfield NJ, a shop which sells an enormous and varied selection of wines, along with hand crafted beers and spirits.
Coolvines, located at 127 Central Avenue in Westfield, (as well as a store in Princeton), offers complimentary wine tastings every Saturday and Sunday from 2:00-5:00 PM, wine dinners, classes, and special in-store events, and even home delivery. They have created a place where anyone, even the wine-unsavy, can feel comfortable shopping for wine without feeling overwhelmed and under-educated. They take pride in hand-selecting their wines, which means their shelves might now always house the “typical” or well known names, but instead has those made by lesser known dedicated wine makers who offer more of a “great find.”
The wines here are arranged by taste, and are accompanied by a guide to help customers choose a wine according to preferences and occasions. In order to assist with selections, they provide a labeling system, represented in a simple visual format, that explains the character of the wine with regard to its taste and its affiliation with different foods. It’s an easy to understand system so that customers can peruse and choose on their own, but the staff is always ready to lend a knowledgeable helping hand. All you have to do is tell them what you like, what you’re going to be eating, how much you’re looking to spend, and they can hook you up with the perfect match!
Looking for the perfect wine to serve or gift for the holidays? Then don’t miss the wine tasting on Saturday, December 8th, in the regular time slot of 2:00-5:00 PM. Enjoy learning about the comforts and “spirits of the season!” And, to sweeten the pot, get an additional 10% off of all of the wines highlighted at the tasting!
The holidays are about wine-ing . . . . not whining! So, check out Coolvines of Westfield NJ for some great selections for your holiday parties and gifts. Learn a little something while enjoying some wine – a win-win…. not a whine whine!!!
