Gianluca from In Vino Veritas 74th and First ave.
(More photos to follow)
I am a lucky man because I am a fan of red wine and the best/ coolest looking wine store in NYC is a hop skip and a jump from my front door on 74th street. In Vino Veritas first drew my attention because it is the nicest looking wine store i have ever seen and the owners and employees are great people. I like to support places in which I like the people, I believe in voting with your wallet and I try not to shop at places where I dont like the service or people and if everyone did this people would wise up quick in this world would get a bit better. I stop in the store almost daily to shoot the breeze (no I am not buying wine everyday, I work to hard for that much drinking) Overtime I started to learn about the history of the place and the family and it is a really cool story, plus they let me photograph their old wine keg to use in my mural work. Here is the interview with one of the owners and a friend, Gianluca.
