Laura Catena is the mastermind behind Luca wines, and she has a dream to produce Argentinian wines which express a distinct sense of place. Laura has a deep connection to Mendoza wine country (her father is Nicolás Catena of the famed Bodega Catena Zapata). The vineyards that this wine comes from are at an elevation 3300-5000ft. The cool climate malbec offers such depth that isn’t always seen. This deep inky colored wine has blackberry and violet notes, black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa and freshly brewed espresso. Lively acidity then leads to an incredibly long finish. I call this wine my “comfort” wine. And with fall coming, it’s just the thing.

What People Are Saying
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.

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.”

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.
