Vintology Wine & Spirits is expanding and moving to a larger shop. Early this fall, Vintology will leave its current location and reopen just a few doors down in the corner location at 2 Palmer Avenue in Scarsdale. The expansion, which also marks Vintology’s 5th Anniversary, includes a larger, more varied selection, and a vibrant event calendar.
Vintology’s expanded selection reflects the ever-changing wine scene. Organic and biodynamic wines, local New York State producers, and artisanal domestic and imported spirits will grow in selection and volume. Proprietor, Dean Morretta and his team are currently tasting daily with importers and domestic producers to find new, exciting selections.
New events, as well as Vintology signature events, take advantage of the larger space and fill up the calendar. Vintology teams up again with Chef & Culinary Instructor Jennifer Rossano for the 3rd “Organic: From Kitchen to Vineyard” on Friday, October 4th. This evening of delicious organic food and wine includes education about the evolving landscape of sustainable and organic winemaking.
On Tuesday, October 8th, the 3rd “Go-Getter Girls & Grapes” brings professional women together for a networking event and a sampling of wines from female winemakers. Vintology will collaborate with the Scarsdale Adult School on Tuesday, October 15th for “Circa 1938: A Post-Prohibition Wine Class & Guided Tasting.” These events, in addition to Vintology’s signature series “Taste with the Experts” featuring ongoing visits by winemakers and importers, excite in the coming months.
Vintology’s expansion marks five years of hard work by owner Dean Morretta. After 20+ years in the wine business, with experiences ranging from buying to importing, Morretta decided to use his extensive knowledge and contacts from around the world to open his own wine shop.
Vintology opened its doors in 2008 and sales have grown each year. Elizabeth Miller, Manager, formerly of Blue Hill at Stone Barns and Red Hat on the River, joined Morretta in 2011. Miller’s training began at the American Sommelier Association, and she is a Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) through the Society of Wine Educators. Seasoned wine professionals Mike Horton and Garret Whitney round out the staff. Together, the team has over 65 years of combined wine knowledge.
