H ave you been hunkered down, forced to work from home? It's been an adjustment to say the least, we know. 

Kids at home?  If they haven't driven you to the point of madness yet, let us step in before they eventually do. 

The Wine Merchant is ramping up delivery and curb-side pick up options for you, our loyal customers. If you've been hankering for a classic Italian Cold-Cut, an Angry Russian, Shrimp Salad, Crab Cake or any one of our signature pasta salads - but are unable to do so, look no further.  Don't let your tummy growl any longer, and don't fret over cold Spaghetti leftovers, we are still using the freshest bread to make our award-winning sandwiches. 

Of paramount importance (sustenance be damned), is having your wine rack, beer fridge and liquor cabinet fully stocked so you don't go full Jack Torrence/The Shining on those that you love. To make your shopping experience all the more stress free, we have quickly curated and highlighted some of our best selling and favorite wine options -  Click Here for Our "Top #26" Wine Picks!

We will be fulfilling orders as best we can with inventory on hand and will gladly be accepting special orders of any particular item you are searching for.  In most cases, special orders can be fulfilled the following day.  All special orders must be received no later than 3pm the previous day. 

Unfortunately, we are not in a position to deliver single lunch and dinner orders throughout town like jolly St. Nick, but we are more than happy to fulfill deli orders for delivery in conjunction with alcohol delivery. Please click  here to view our deli menu and call the store directly to hear our daily specials. 

While we are capable to offer same-day delivery on a limited basis where applicable, we are ordering goods every day, and next-day delivery is available under virtually all circumstances unless otherwise noted.
