We love Rex Hill! Not only is the wine fabulous, but the tasting room is always welcoming. The staff are knowledgeble but not at all snooty when it comes to talking about their great wines.

You can get fresh, uncooked pasta here that's divine! They also have other great cooking ingredients-I always buy my olive oil there. Their meats are fresh and cut right there in the shop. Yummy!
