The wines of Mount Etna, the only continuously active volcano on the island, have been the first wave of bottles to put Sicily on the map for sommeliers and casual wine drinkers alike. Tenuta delle Terre Nere’s entry level Etna Rosso along with their single vineyard bottlings are now both ubiquitous in New York City, thanks Eric Asimov’s praise for the wines year after year. I’ve always bought the hype behind Etna Rosso, but I’ve never been quite as impressed with the whites from this stunning landscape… until now, that is. This organically-farmed blend of Carricante and Catarratto is aged in stainless steel, but aged on its lees, which ultimately provides the wine a creaminess that is balanced ever so well by its naturally high acidity. Smoked blue fish pâté and a bottle of this? I don’t see why not! Nashville hot chicken and waffle fries? Bring it on – and please bring that over, we’re open until ten.

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.

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.

There are lots of wine stores in the neighborhood and if you tend to drink the same kinds of wine all the time, there are other stores that might be more to your liking. But if you want to explore the world of wine – really get to know the multitude of wine regions and get exposed to different grapes and truly small, artisanal producers – Amsterdam Wine Co can take you on an amazing journey. Thank you, Amsterdam!
