Tomorrow marks the 77th anniversary of the end of Prohibition. This was one of FDR’s promises to the electorate and he was able to fulfill that promise with the ratification of the 21st Amendment to the constitution.
Wine Tasters – a local wine store with an excellent selection in the heart of the village was there…way back in 1933. And was ready for the legalization of alcohol with the 477th liquor license issued in New York State. Since there have been only four owners since the store opened its doors back in the middle of the Great Depression – the license has been passed down from owner to owner and now sits on the counter at the front of the store.
The store itself is traditional and old-fashioned and it has a wonderful selection of wine and liquor – however, the new owner – Greg O’Brien emphasizes that it is primarily a wine store. The evening I was in there, I was in search of a fine Zinfandel for dinner with friends and with Greg’s help an excellent bottle was selected an enjoyed by all later in the evening.
There is a wine tasting between 2-5 PM every Saturday and the store offers the added feature of free delivery – a rare perk in today’s world.
Wine Tasters is located at 100 Chatsworth Ave near the Larchmont Tavern. Their phone number is 914-834-0800.
