Neighborhood Wine Shop

Jordan Mackay | June 15, 2012 | Story

Trader Joe’s may be cheap and Whole Foods convenient, but Noe Valley Wine Merchants illustrates the virtues of going small when buying wine. Opened by wine retail genius Jim Mead in March, this intimate shop is strong in Italian wine and burgundy. Mead also has great craft and Belgian beers, plus a small spirits collection that even geeks will love. 3821 24th St., 415-374-7249
