It’s sour grapes for De-Vino at 30 Clinton Street. The always reliable wine boutique closed earlier this week after supplying the neighborhood for eight years. However, the news is not surprising. De-Vino had been on the chopping block since November of last year, listed with an asking price of $50,000 in key money and $2,500 monthly rent. A buyer has presumably stepped forward (though, not necessarily for that amount), confirmed by the sign behind the security gate announces the closure “until further notice.”  In the meantime, it appears the business will continue honoring internet orders.

Behind the glass, those walls of wine racks are now bare. The contents of the store now sit in boxes by the front door.

Born-and-bred Italian Gabrio Tosti di Valminuta opened the De-Vino wine boutique at 30 Clinton in 2005. His always-deep selection included an array of wines from various countries (at least 1,700 bottles), and became popular with the locals.
