Meet us where wine is savored

If you’ve seen the lively enotecas in Italy where friends share bottles of wine on the patio, then you can imagine the atmosphere of Anfora Wine Merchants.

This is much more than a store selling wine by the bottle. This is an education center where tastings and classes are hosted. It’s also a place to enjoy a bottle of wine with friends.

That bottle of wine is certain to be both delicious and sustainable. Ninety percent of the bottles stocked at Anfora are organic and all have an environmental focus.

Pro tip: Anfora enjoys a partnership with Carnivore, the artisan butcher shop across the street. The entire menu is available for Anfora guests so that you can sip a bottle of wine on the wine shop patio while enjoying a steak!

In a neighborly example of delicious collaboration, Anfora also partners with Blackout Baking Co. to offer delightful bite-sized cookies to go with your wine. Cheers!

You can also arrange a guided wine tasting for your private parties (think book clubs or wedding showers!)
