FEATURED STORIES

Almost all the wines sold at Vinovore are made by female winemakers who are often unrecognized in a mostly male dominated industry, even though women are the biggest consumers of wine worldwide.
The concept of Vinovore is to celebrate the growing number of female winemakers in a male dominated industry and do it in a whimsical, playful, educational and unique way. There's something else that makes Vinovore unique compared to other wine shops...and its this wine tasting chart, kind of like a Chinese zodiac, that helps shoppers find the perfect wine based on their characteristics.

WHAT WE'RE HEARING...

Nice little spot that I found after an art show! It has different types of wines categorized by your personality type. On the wall, it will explain the different color of stickers represent what type of taste you are fond of. They also have birthday cards, wine openers, and gift sets. - Carola S.

Great small production wine with a good discount on half cases (10%) - John-Henry S.

A feminist wine shop! I'm so excited this gem is in the neighborhood.

Vinovore curates delicious wines from all over the world from lady winemakers, which is brilliant. I came here because they were hosting an adoption event with MaeDay Rescue. Getting to cuddle puppies and taste wine is pretty much the best way to spend a Saturday. Part of their wine sales was donated to the rescue, so of course we had to pick up a bottle of wine. We grabbed a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from High Valley Vineyard that we had tasted. It was reasonably priced, only $15, and it was delicious. Definitely tasted more expensive, so it's a wonderful value.

My husband became enamored with a slingshot with a fox's face on it, so we took that home instead of a puppy (probably for the best). So not only do they have lots of wine, they also have cute gifts.

I'll definitely be back to buy more wine and support female winemakers - Shannon R.

Feminist wine shop FTW.

It's been interesting to see all the changes on this little stretch of Hoover. Now having been to Vinovore, I think it's my favorite new edition. 

Stopped in here yesterday to pick up a bottle of wine for my friend's b-day. She likes a red that'll punch you in the face, and thanks to Vinovore's cleverly-worded descriptions, I felt confident that I'd found a winner: a wine from Uruguay described as a "broody weirdo." I also picked up a four-pack of Tin City's Poly Dolly Cider, a blend of cider and rosé that comes in a delightfully pink can (so basic, I know). I'm ready to dub this the Drink of Summer 2018. 

Love the fact that most (if not all?) of the wine they sell is from women winemakers. Makes shopping here just a little bit more special, and worth the extra coin that you'd save getting wine at Trader Joe's. Plus, I don't even need to get in my car (bonus!). - Sandra V.

Such a cool spot! Love the concept and love all the handwritten descriptions. The wines I got were super reasonable and delicious. And the inside was cute enough that I didn't want to leave. Excited to go back and so glad to have a spot like this in the neighborhood. - Addie D.

Great selection of unique wines. Much like a museum with art from around the world, made mostly by women! - SanLouis S.

All Womyn craft wines! What's not to love. The owner is incredible. I've been here a few times and ever time they're recommendations blow my mind. The design and color scheme really make the location pop. There is no parking lot, but you can easily find parking around the street. I love biking here to pick up a bottle for a special  - Israel V.

What a fantastic wine store! Incredibly thoughtful, knowledgeable and helpful staff. This store focuses mainly on female vintners, and the selection is perfect. I wish there was a store just like this in Boston. They also sell a local chocolatier, (whose name I forget!) that was a perfect accompaniment to the wine. So delicious! - Janet H.

I have no words that do Vinovore justice. This place was a fortunate stroll of serendipity. The staff and owner are incredible. Everything from their graphic design, labels, and decor makes me want to return. I hope they don't move locations because it's a sweet spot near my home. All Womyn made wines is something I stand by 100%! Love this place. They saved my life with wonderful recommendations. Great place to pick up wine for any occasion. If you have any doubt - don't. Go here! - Israel V.

I started out just buying a bottle here or a bottle there, but after being overly delighted with every single pick the owner suggested, I decided to face reality and became a yearly wine club member. I'm so so glad I did! There's something subtly different about all the wines coming from only female winemakers and the prices here are so affordable. No more wine shopping at Trader Joes for me--ever again! Their in-store tastings with these incredible women winemakers are so much fun and such a unique and special experience. I feel like I'm in my own version of Chef's Table by the inspiration I get from these winemakers and hearing their personal stories. Why would I want to spend a Tuesday night any other way? Next tasting though, I'm bringing a bottle of coconut water because these tastings are very generous! Thank you for being here and I look forward to the next month's surprise bottles. - Carissa D.

Always a great experience here and love that they are supporting wines made by women. Will continue to be back :) - David A.

Went here the other week to pick up a bottle of wine and the staff was super informative and friendly! They have a great selection with descriptions and good prices. A really great neighborhood wine shop! - Rebecca A.
I'm so happy to find a wine store focusing on wines made by women! Everyone was very helpful in finding the wine I was looking for and I walked out with a Gruner Veltliner and a pet nat gamay both of which were delicious. It's great to have a place to buy good wine in the neighborhood! - Ellen C.
Great boutique wine shop! Lots of unique wines I can't find anywhere else, and the service is extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely a bit more on the pricey side but you can find some great wines in the $12-15 range, and they cater to those with more expensive tastes as well. - Andy R.
I called to pay for a gift for a friend to pick up for their birthday. Koli recommended a super cool wine that I wouldn’t have normally thought of and it fit the bill perfectly. She went above and beyond to wrap it and write a little note on my behalf. Thank you for making it so easy for me and special for my friend! Also, what a cool premise, all female winemakers! Love supporting local shops that are fighting the good fight. - Thalia V.
Awesome idea and application. Super fresh concept, I didn't know what I was walking into but I dug it! Really knowledgeable and friendly staff. Go check them out! - Joshua S.
Great wine and very helpful staff. Glad to have this place in my neighborhood. - Kaleb B.
