A cozy wine closet we’d one day like to own a smaller version of in our cellar, with a proximity to Whole Foods’ healthful shopping that makes for an easy Harbor East one-stop weekend stock-up, Bin 604 has plenty to recommend it. We love the $99 box, nice selection with a range of price points to choose from without being overwhelming, knowledgeable salespeople, descriptive signage, and that no one looks at you funny when you ask about pink bubbly. It offers special tastings, classes, and a women’s wine-tasting club, Girls on Grapes, if you are inclined to learn more about vino, and more than enough hard liquor and cold beer if you aren’t, plus a couple of box wines if you just want to tip it.
