Colagreco opened Mirazur in 2006 — a restaurant now considered the definition of luxe dining on the Riviera, all amid a panoramic view of the Mediterranean in the mountains in Menton, France. In 2019, the restaurant ranked number one in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and was Gault & Millau’s 2009 Chef of the Year.

That has made it one of the city’s few three-Michelin starred restaurants, although Ripert’s long string of accolades includes winning the 2003 James Beard Foundation for Outstanding Chef in the United States. He’s also co-owner, with his wine director, of New York’s Aldo Sohm Wine Bar, and of Blue by Eric Ripert, his celebrated restaurant in the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman.

Flatiron Wines – NY and SF
With locations in both New York and San Francisco, Flatiron has emerged as one of the premier wine retailers in the country. They have access to nearly every top-tier producer in New and Old Worlds alike — but the staff is just as comfortable helping with a $15 bottle for a Tuesday night as with grand cru Burgundy. Speaking of: the New York store has an especially deep selection of Burgundies and Loire wines, as well as an extensive selection under $20. Pro tip: Don’t miss the special deals available via their regular emails.
Domestique – DC
Located at the Florida Ave. intersection of several neighborhoods, Domestique brings the best natural wines to DC. Its remarkable curation of must-try producers — everything from the Joussets in France’s Loire Valley to Broc Cellars from California — would be a standout anywhere. But the Domestique team is deeply committed to serving the local community, and sharing great wine with everyone.
Edmund’s Oast Exchange – CHS
Edmunds Oast may be known for its beer, but the wine retail sibling to this immensely popular Charleston restaurant has quietly amassed one of the best selections in the Southeast. That includes many hard-to-find Burgundies, and yet manager Sarah O’Kelley and her team are equally enthusiastic about Austrian riesling, affordable Bordeaux, and much more — and skilled at guiding customers to just the right bottle.
Helen’s Wines – LA
Helen Johannesen’s too-cool-for-school approach has made the restaurants in the Jon & Vinny’s empire a destination for wine-fashionable Angelenos. Now she offers that same vibe in two retail shops co-located with the J&V locations in Brentwood and Fairfax. This is where to find the bottle that will be the talk of your next (socially distanced) get-together.
Montrose Cheese & Wine – HOU
The team that brought you Goodnight Charlie’s and Rosie Cannonball, including master sommelier June Rodil, has created a perfect template for a neighborhood wine shop: not just an impeccably curated set of standout wines, but beautifully chosen artisan cheeses, too, with a focus on small American producers. A one-stop spot for Houstonians to plan the perfect picnic — and more.
Verve Wine – NY and SF
Master sommelier Dustin Wilson and his talented teams on both coasts — in New York and San Francisco — have brought to retail the friendly, no-bad-choices approach to wine that we all wish for in restaurants. Yes, Verve has access to all the top allocated wines, but it doesn’t put on airs about its (standout) selection. The NYC location also arranges for Hamptons delivery. Pro tip: Don’t miss the user-friendly newsletters.
