New Store Hours and A New Face

Etienne Guerin | September 7, 2023

Bonjour, hi!

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Étienne Guérin, I am the new Wine Concierge at the Sotheby’s Wine Store on York Ave. I’ve spent three decades of my wine career in fine dining and hospitality, both in my hometown of Montreal, and here in New York since 2013. I joined the Sotheby’s Wine team a few weeks ago and I am eager to meet you in person, at our retail store.

I have put together a short list of personal favorites that you can find on our shelves right now. A hefty Barolo that will reward your patience, an intriguing red Saint-Aubin from the Pope of Puligny-Montrachet, an electric Saumur from the most esteemed Chenin Blanc vineyard in the world and a vibrant and hearty Bandol for the upcoming cooler fall nights. These are wines I have been cherishing and working with for quite a long time. I hope that they provide you with a glimpse of my taste.

I’m also excited to announce that starting September 11th, our NYC wine store will be open on Mondays from 12pm to 7pm, in addition to our regular store hours of Tuesday-Friday 11am-7pm and Saturday 10am-6pm.

We are gearing up for a busy holiday season and are thrilled to offer recommendations tailored for all occasions, from your most humble weeknight-stay-at-home meals to your most extravagant grand dinner parties!
