While boutique in feel with top notch client service, our large footprint of more than 10,000 square feet gives clients from all over the region an array of brands and services from which to choose.
Specialty, High End Liquor Store
Our shelves and walk-in beer cooler offer a hand-curated array of more than 1,000 craft beers that represent U.S. and international breweries. Our collection of spirits – including, but certainly not limited to, bourbon, tequila, single malt scotch and American whiskey – is vast, and includes many in-demand, limited-edition, high-end, and hard-to-find cult spirits.
Rhode Island’s Best Wine Shop
Our all-inclusive wine selection has something for everyone, with thousands of bottles spanning every-day, quality value selections under $15, to first-growth Bordeaux such as Chateau Mouton Rothschild and high-end Napa Valley wines from the estates of Bond and Harlan.
Once you visit, you’ll see why we have consistently been selected as one of “The Best Wine Shops” by RI Monthly Magazine Reader’s Poll. We have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Wine Spectator, Providence Business News, Edible Rhody and The Providence Journal.

Engraving Master & Designer
Emma was raised right outside of Washington DC where frequent trips to the city’s great museums and landmarks instilled a love of the arts and learning from a young age. She studied ballet from the age of five, and trips to visit family in the great Ocean State fostered a deep love and fascination for the ocean. She ultimately decided to study graphic design so she could combine her art and science interests.
Emma received her degree in Multimedia and Web Design at New England Tech in 2008 and has been working in the field ever since. While the pointe shoes have long been retired, Emma continued her passion for wellness and movement through teaching yoga and Zumba classes. She brings her artistic prowess along with a love for people and connection to The Savory Grape. On her down time, you can find her cooking, enjoying documentaries or horror movies, or rolling dice at a Dungeons and Dragons table.
