Any GOOD wine shops in Philly/PA?

kcadams1980 | Mar 26, 2009 03:07 PM

I just moved to Philly for 6 months on a work assignment from Houston, and am really chafing under PA's oddball liquor laws! I am definitely a wine lover - have a fairly sophisticated knowledge/palate - and although I've certainly been impressed with the city's beer offerings, I've had a difficult time finding good spots for wine. I live in the Rittenhouse Square area, and have so far only gone to the state-run "wine & spirit" stores for bottles... They're okay for everyday stuff (though I haven't been too impressed with the selection at the 19th & Chestnut store), but are there any "better" wine shops with knowledgable sales staff? If I'm looking for something specific to pair I really like to be able to have a conversation with someone who knows something about wine... Thanks locals!
