The December Wine Hit List: St. Anselm, Popina, Compagnie, and More


As wine seasons go, December is the playoffs — holiday parties and family dinners, all those fizzy things for New Years. Our hunch? Even if 2020 gonna 2020, there will still be plenty of wine flowing this year, because goodness knows, you take holiday cheer where you find it.

Perhaps the context will be different, which is why some of our favorite New York wine destinations, like Popina and Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels, have pivoted toward retail. But there’s still plenty to be enjoyed — whether you’re out for a steak in Williamsburg or vibing deeply on orange wine in the East Village.

So here’s our special holiday edition of the Wine Hit List, with a toast to what happiness we can find this season, and to happier times to come.
