About The Savory Grape
Since its inception in 2006, The Savory Grape has become one of the premier wine, craft beer and spirits retail and online businesses in New England. 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.
