About The Wine Thief in New Haven, CT 06510

With the growing number of wine producing regions popping up in the world today, there is much more wine in the market to choose from.  Therefore, part of our job is to sort through thousands and thousands of producers each year to find you wines that are well made, have value and truly deliver their style.  This is a job we take seriously (not too seriously because it is also fun) all while keeping the consumer in mind.  We like to bring you an interesting and eclectic array of inventory that changes regularly to avoid stagnance.  These wines generally are slightly harder to find and maybe things you had never even heard of, we like that.

Our goal as a retailer is to maintain a casual un-intimidating environment that makes you feel comfortable to learn, and experiment.  This way, a historically uptight process of choosing the right bottle is more approachable.

So how else do we make wine so approachable? Easy, first we created the perfect wine shop environment—from the owner, to our staff, to our cozy atmosphere, The Wine Thief focuses on educating both the accomplished and casual wine lover while making them comfortable and confident to enjoy their selections.

Next, we work closely with a network of worldwide vintners, so our patrons can be confident knowing they’ll get the best bottle of wine for their money. In fact, as far as we know we are the only wine shop aggressively promoting a money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with one of our recommendations.

Finally, we realize that recommending wine is about more than knowing vintages and having a fancy vocabulary. It’s about knowing people-and really understanding them. That’s why we talk with our customers, get to know them and their tastes. Because enjoying wine is about being comfortable, sharing experiences and truly enjoying the moment. At The Wine Thief, it is important to us that you feel like you have made the right selection –every time.

Our Mission
The Wine Thief upholds an uncompromising mission, to ensure every bottle of wine we sell is savored and enjoyed. If your wine selection fails to meet your expectations, simply return the unused portion for a complete refund.
