Navigating New York City’s Wine Bars
In New York City, it seems that a new wine bar is springing up every other week. This rise in popularity is due to wine drinkers getting younger (people ages 25 to 34 now account for the largest group of wine consumers, according to Impact) and accessibility increasing. Wine bars are making the beverage more accessible by providing wider selections of unique and interesting wines that might otherwise be overlooked, or hard to find, on the shelves of a retail store.
