so, i know of bar veloce, solex, and in vino in the area. does anyone know of (and can recommend) other good wine bars in the east village. lets say between houston and 14 between bowery and ave B.
what i'm looking for: a good selection of wines with someone who can guide me towards a couple good glasses without totally blowing the bank. i'm not particular about what region the wines come from. i'm also looking for places in the area that do tastings - i'm trying to learn a little about wine but don't have the time/money for a class.
