This is a wine I’ve been longing to highlight as much as I’ve been longing to return to the beautifulwinery and generous hospitality of the Pepe family. If you think you’ve tasted all that Montepulciano d’Abruzzo has to offer, think again. Emidio Pepe produces incredibly long-lived, read 40+ years, wines from the local varietals Montepulciano, Trebbiano, and Pecorino. Their farm is biodynamic and everything is done with the utmost care including pressing the grapes by hand and foot, no heavy machinery here! The result is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. This vintage is drinking well, the tannins have become more velvety and the nose is full of autumn leaves and mushrooms. If you’re celebrating something special, consider stepping outside of the Barolo-Brunello box and taking a detour to Italy’s eastern coast.

What People Are Saying
I like wine but I don’t have the budget to drink great wines as often as I’d like. The selection at Amsterdam Wine Co. is so well chosen that I feel like I’m always drinking above my means. Great addition to the neighborhood.

I’ve lived on the UWS for 20+ years and long ago had pledged my allegiance to one of the old stalwart liquor stores in the neighborhood. But something made we want to give Amsterdam Wine Co a shot. I did…. and I’ve never looked back. Great selection, great prices and amazing service. It’s my new “go-to.”
- Jason C.
After spending most of my nights selling wine to locals and tourists alike, it’s a relief to be able to walk into a local wine store that can give back that same level of attention and passion. Amsterdam Wine Co. will always be my go to spot on the Upper West Side for a great conversation and that perfect bottle of wine.
