According to the Wine Institute, wine consumption in the U.S. has been on an upward trend ever since they started tracking wine drinking in 1940. In 2018, Americans drank 966 million gallons of wine, up from 747 million gallons 10 years earlier. As wine continues to become more popular, so does wine storage and education. What turns some on to wine (and others off) is that each bottle can vary by year because of winemaking techniques, global temperature fluctuations, attacks from predators and/or plant-born diseases, and transportation/storage conditions. Therefore, in the wine world knowledge is power.


Luxury residential developers have taken note and instead of just offering wine storage cellars and amenity spaces to enjoy wine in, they are now upping their vino game and offering wine education, tastings, and expert consultations as part of their amenities package. From star-sommelier services to standout store selections, the luxury residential amenities offerings just got better with age.

30 Warren

The bold and beautiful Post-Office Architectes luxury condominium at 30 Warren is just blocks away from even bolder star sommelier Paul Grieco’s Terroir Tribeca. Terroir is a local institution and the birthplace of the “Summer of Riesling” movement, and Grieco is an irreverent, in-your-face, non-wine-snob, wine expert. Similarly, 30 Warren is no wallflower as it embraces its location with its design and facade that burst with downtown personality. 30 Warren and Greico will offer an array of services including private wine tastings and one-on-one consultations about collecting, food pairing, and auction participation. From acquiring hard-to-get bottles to storing expensive collections, this unique program streamlines the wine-drinking experience for residents, allowing them to enjoy and then easily re-cork customized selections without any hassle. Additionally, residents can enjoy VIP reservation status at Terroir, as well as in-home catering.


Beyond the Grieco offerings, the building also offers residents wine collecting and cellar storage: Chambers Street Wines, specialists in naturally made and rare wines, offers 30 Warren residents access to its unique selection and provides convenient, temperature-controlled wine storage service. This is in addition to individual wine refrigerators in each of 30 Warren’s units.

One Hundred Barclay


The Ralph Walker-designed One Hundred Barclay boasts a Jeffrey Beers-designed wine room on its sleek Club Level. It is conveniently located next to the 54 wine lockers (which are for sale to oenophile residents in the building); each locker holds more than 100 bottles. New York Vintners will be on hand to provide sommelier services, wine tastings, and wine locker stocking.


Shane Benson, the Managing Partner of New York Vintners said, "We are thrilled to partner with One Hundred Barclay and offer residents the opportunity to create their personal dream collections customized to their taste. Owners have access to our experts who can assist with building impressive wine collections, hosting private wine tastings with food pairings and any questions an oenophile may have. Our flagship events space and store is located just down the street at 63 Barclay, should anyone need help curating a last-minute event or tasting. We enjoyed the creative process of consulting to create a wine oasis where residents could escape to after a long day and we look forward to our continued partnership."

The cellar is lined with gravel imported from Bordeaux and has custom wine armoires that are equipped with a climate control system designed to regulate temperature and humidity for optimal storage. Additionally, the building offers consultations with the prestigious retailer Sherry-Lehmann to help build a cellar for drinking or investment.
