Tips:
  • For the Quince experience without the price tag, sample a few of the dishes in the restaurant’s cushy lounge.
  • Don’t be underdressed. Jeans might cut it in the lounge area, but only if accompanied by uber-stylish accessories.

Quince Wine List Review

Quince Wine List Review

At VinoServant we talk about “Special Occasion Wines”, and Quince falls under the category of “Special Occasion Restaurant.” The wine list is made up of 600+ wines with the majority hailing from Italy (199 – 24 whites and 175 reds) and France (198 – 92 whites and 106 reds). Given the size of this wine list, and the fact that you can drink wines from the United States (154 – 25 whites and 129 reds) at numerous other restaurants, we are going to focus this review on the best values from Italy and France. The great news is that the list has a number of bottles under $80, and that is rare for a restaurant with the pedigree of Quince.

As with all VinoServant reviews, you will see the price at the restaurant followed by the mark-up over retail and if applicable, a rating from one of the publications listed below (Doyard, Cuvée Vendémiaire, Blanc de Blancs Brut, Vertus | $85 | 1.9x | WS 92 | TP). Mark up of 1.9x translates into a retail price of $43 a bottle, Wine Spectator rated this wine 92 points and it is one of our Top Picks at Quince.

Best time I've ever had at a restaurant
