The Wine House

March 24th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Last week Ethan and I were on our way to my mom’s and stopped at The Wine House in Holliston.
I still get a kick out of any sort of  business in Holliston. I know, it doesn’t really make sense.  Holliston is a nice town with people living there so what is so strange about that?   I think just from growing up in this town, it just seemed any sort of food-related business was a big deal.  I remember when Bertucci’s opened my friends and I said  “Wow, a real restaurant opened in OUR town?”  Before that it was really just Norman’s, Pete’s Lunch (kids weren’t really welcome), Superette Deli and 2 pizza places, and Pot Belly Deli (that I never went to) other than that you had to go to Milford (for us rubes on the south side of town) or Ashland (for all the cool kids living in the Queens).  So even now when something like a quaint little wine shops opens I think “Wow, a wine shop decided to open in Holliston?”
It’s kind of small inside but they have a good inventory of all sorts of wine and have an area with various cheese and crackers.  They make wine baskets too so it’s a nice place to stop and get a housewarming gift or some sort of treat for an occasion.
They also have a website you can check out for more info:

    I love your blog (as usual) and I like your little story on the wine shop. It is funny how it is always a big deal when some food/drink establishment opens in Holliston. Remember when I worked at Food Glorious Food – not really a restaurant, but they had food & it was good. I remember taking the liberty to “taste test” many of the items while I whittled the hours away behind the counter there 🙂

    I know what you mean about food and Holliston. There never have been many choices, if any.

    I was in town last week and noticed a crepe restaurant opening next to Fiskes. It may be too narrow a focus, but I hope it does well.
