574 W. MAIN STREET BOISE, IDAHO 83702 (208)972-3385 SALES@CITYCENTERWINES.COM
City Center Wines is a wine bar and bottle shop located in the Old Boise shopping mall at 574 W. Main Street. We are open 11-8 Monday thru Saturday. We focus on European and domestic wine and beer, in particular small producers who practice organic and/or biodynamic farming. We have free tastings weekly and on First Thursdays.
We aim to carry wine that has the "quality of deliciousness". We stay away from mass produced wine and instead carry wine from family owned wineries, some of which have been in existence since the 1500s. We love wine that is clean and as natural as possible, where you taste the terrior, the land the grapes grew on.
Our sparkling wine comes from around the world-- Cava from Spain, Prosecco and Lambrusco from Italy, Champagne and bubbly from France.
Our beer selection is entirely European-- no micro brews here! We have beer from the oldest brewery in the world, beers brewed by monks...all in a wide range of flavors and styles. Saisons, doppelbocks, hefeweizens, dubbels, tripels, quadruples, sours, farmhouse ales-- if these are unfamiliar, come see what you've been missing.
VERMOUTH SHERRY PORT ETC
The lesser known wines like sherry and vermouth can be a surprising aromatic delight to have before or after dinner. They also make great cocktails-- sweet vermouth in a Manhattan, dry vermouth in a martini, for example. Port is a fortified wine, in white, ruby and tawny varieties, that is wonderful with dessert or just to sip on.
OLIVE AND VINEGAR
Our olive oils and vinegars are full of herbs and spices, perfect for dipping bread into, or drizzling onto salads or vegetables.
We carry stylish bottle openers, stoppers, holders, etc. Some glam, some rustic, all chosen for the combination of beauty and function.
We carry a selection of stemware and stemless glassware, plus decanters. The right glass makes drinking wine much more enjoyable!
Our chocolates are locally made by Truffles Etc. We carry a selection of mini truffles, 4 packs of larger truffles, and wine carriers-- 2 and 4 packs you can hang on a bottle of wine for gifts. Flavors range from dark chocolate with strawberry balsamic, to milk chocolate caramel, to Baileys espresso and everywhere in between.
