Tiny, impossible to find, and loaded with bargains on Rhones, Burgundies, and the undiscovered wines of France, Austin Wine Merchant is more of a custom wine purveyor than a retail store. Almost every bottle in the store is a winner. And they're not too snooty to keep a supply of good "plonk," decent quality wine in the $8-$10 category. Let John or Kate recommend a bottle or two and you'll never go wrong.
