SHOP: POMPETTE WINE SHOP OPENS ON 131ST STREET
We met the owner who happens to be a 4th generation Harlem resident who grew up a couple of blocks south of the new business on Lenox Avenue. After working for other vintners in the past, the Harlem local decided to open up a store that featured only small vineyards that only work organically producing their goods and soon found a business partner. Those looking for the harder stuff should check out the local brands that are made in Brooklyn that Pompette also carries in the back shelfs.
Interested shoppers should drop by at least once to check out the wonderful interior which includes hand written price labels for each selection and really great personal service. Otherwise, the store does delivery so folks can check out Pompette online to make orders: www.pompettewines.com
Pompette also has free wine tasting from Thursday-Saturdays in the early evening hours.
