I just stumbled on a new wine store in Frederick. Its called the Frederick Wine House and it is located right across the street from Frederick Memorial Hospital (405 W. 7th Street, Suite B). They’ve only been open about a week and it looked like they were still getting things set up, but they had a good selection of wines in a nice uncluttered layout. I was in a hurry, so I didn’t have time to browse at length, but it appeared they had a lot of different wines that I haven’t seen in our area before. It also looked like they had a good selection of Spanish and Italian wines. The emphasis seemed to be on value as I didn’t see much over $30 and almost nothing over $40. The proprietor, Gary, was very friendly and made a few recommendations based on what I said my preferences were. I bought a few bottles and it will be interesting to see if his palate matches mine. Gary said they are going to have regular free (my favorite word!) tastings there on Fridays and Saturdays. I shall definitely be back. I will also let you know how the purchased bottles turn out.
