De-Vino Wine Boutique on Clinton Street for Sale

Posted on: November 28th, 2012 at 6:48 am by

In 2005, born-and-bred Italian Gabrio Tosti di Valminuta opened the De-Vino wine boutique at 30 Clinton Street. His always-deep selection includes an array of wines from various countries (at least 1,700 bottles), and is certainly popular with the locals. So, we were therefore concerned to come across a recent real estate listing for the shoebox shop.

Indeed, it appears as though the 335-square-foot De-Vino is for sale, with an asking price of $50,000 in key money and $2,500 monthly rent. Tower Brokerage is repping the deal.

Gabrio Tosti di Valminuta has been a fixture on the Lower East Side since the mid-1990s, when he followed his sister Beatrice (owner of Il Bagatto) to New York from Rome. Shortly thereafter, he opened the pioneering Il Posto Accanto next door, often considered the first wine bar in the East Village.
