Veronique Cecilia Barretto and Melissa Unsell have become the new owners of Wine: A  Fine Wine Shop at 7271 Wurzbach Rd. The new shop will still focus on wine, but the name will change after the first of the year to Vinously Speaking, which is also the name of Barretto’s blog.

Brotherhood Holiday Spice Wine

The store offers a broad array of wines for all tastes, whether you’re looking for some Old World reds, New World whites or sparklers to fit a few budgets. A lineup of wines from Yarden in Israel includes a Cabernet Sauvignon that Barretto recommends for holiday dinners. The kosher winery doesn’t rely heavily on oak, allowing the natural flavor of the grapes and terroir to come through, she says. The wine sells for $45.

Dolce the shop dog.

Also at the wine shop is Holiday Spiced Wine from Brotherhood, the oldest winery in the country. The New York wine features “cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice and a secret variety of other herbs and spices,” the label says. Serve it warm on a cold day. The wine sells for $15 a bottle.

Plans are to add a wine bar area after the first of the year.

While you’re at the store, say hi to Dolce, the shop dog.

The store is open Tuesday-Saturday from noon to 7 p.m. For information, call 210-240-5866.

    I urge each and everyone of you San Antonians to visit this establishment. You will be enlightened by the vast knowledge of these 2 fabulous women, and the wine selection is that of Royalty, and comes with a price tag we can all afford.
