Where we've featured it
Vinovore is a Virgil Village wine shop that exclusively features bottles from women winemakers. There are varietals from across the world, and every bottle comes with a card that’ll tell you about the wine you’re drinking - whether it’s a note about Chenoa Ashton-Lewis’ Ashanta Wines, or a chillable red wine that’s “showy and explosive, like your crazy BF from college.” Most bottles are under $75. Order online for curbside pick-up, local delivery, or FedEx shipping, or stop by their pick-up window.
A great Virgil Village shop, Vinovore has a wide selection of bottles from women winemakers across the world. Every bottle comes with a card that’ll tell you about the wine you’re drinking, whether it’s a note about Sandy and Tatiana, two sisters making moschofilero in Greece, or a Los Alamos wine that’s “exciting and different, like a weird party.” Plus, most bottles are under $50. They’ve got pick-up and local delivery through their website, or app delivery also available.
Honestly, shout out to wine in general this year, but also specifically Vinovore for helping me get through 2020’s roughest patches. My boyfriend and I have become pretty obsessed with this Silver Lake wine shop as of late, which focuses on female winemakers, but also has excellent snacks like hard-to-find cheeses to tinned sardines. We usually do their 12-bottle “Who Runs The World? Girls!” box (because why not?), which you can order online or by calling them directly and just letting them know what you’re in the mood for (tip: do that). Either way, they’ll have your order packaged up and ready for consumption in under a half hour.
Silver Lake wine and goods shop Vinovore has a ton of custom wine boxes, but this one is definitely the most… sensual. It includes all sorts of goods for anyone interested in a little exploration, like silicone handcuffs, a sexy truth or dare card game, natural lubricant, a sexual astrology book, and of course, a bottle of wine. And they say the perfect gift box doesn’t exist…
