5 Reasons Why Groton Market is a Great Place to Buy Wine

This is the first in a series of blog posts that will focus on Boston-area wine stores and some reasons why each is a great place to shop for wine.  I will be cross-posting to Bob Dwyer’s wine blog The Wellesley Wine Press so we can cover the greater Boston area in our respective blogs.

Groton Market, located on Route 119 (Great Road) in Groton, MA, is a great little wine shop for the following reasons:

Careful Selection of Quality Wines

The store has a good selection of wines, mostly from small producers, from most of the more popular wine producing regions, and quite often with good ratings from International Wine Cellar, Wine Spectator, or Wine Advocate, which are helpfully posted.  As a consumer, I like that information posted clearly.

Thoughtful Selection of Price Points and Sale Items

The store features at various price points 2-Fer sale bins, Featured White Wines, Featured Red Wines, items on sale on End Caps, and regular sale items in inventory.  I assume the 2-Fer sale bins are the most popular with most consumers, but even the cheapest offerings there that are 2-For $12.99 represent good quality.

Return Policy

How many wine shops do you know that will accept returns? This shop accepts returns on opened or unopened bottles, if you are unhappy.

Friendly and Helpful Staff

I always have a nice time chatting with J.P., owner John, and the other people who work there.  They also know their inventory, and their stuff.  Quite often there is a bottle open to taste.

Proximity to Filho’s Cucina

The shop is actually attached to and flows through to a very nice Italian restaurant called Filho’s Cucina, which conveniently has a BYOB policy.  The shop is also attractively airy and sunny, and although small, doesn’t feel too cramped.

I also want to mention that the shop has a very good selection of craft beers, although that is not really my bag.

  4. I am envious; we do not have such a wonderful assortment here in Phoenix. I just might have to make an effort to stop by next time my family visits the East Coast.
