Tinto Fino


85 1st Ave.,
New York,
United States,

Building on the Spanish food trend in the city, of which jointly owned Chelsea tapas bar Tía Pol helped spur, this simplified East Village wine shop carries around 250 or so different labels from around the Iberian peninsula, organized geographically, with special attention being paid to sherry. The owners have traveled extensively in Spain and know many of the vintners personally, and they can help recommend the perfect Galician white or classic Rioja. Free tastings are held at Tinto Fino every Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 4p.m. to 7 p.m.
