It’s been a year since Grapes & Grains made its way to Barrington adding both charm and character to the community. Matt Amaral not only has a passion for wine, but also a passion for a strong staff well versed in food culture and customer service. At Grapes & Grains you will be guaranteed an exceptional experience whether you attend an event, tasting or just stop by for a new bottle of Merlot.
The atmosphere is what entices customers upon their initial arrival. The cozy setting complete with a Reserve Room carrying unique labels immediately welcomes guests. This space is often used for events with its intimate size and Napa Valley aesthetic. The Valentines Day tasting included a masseuse and three variations of miniature cupcakes from The Sweet Shoppe accompanied by wine. No better way to celebrate the holiday!
The store layout is excellent allowing for customers to purchase a bottle of wine based on region, price or staff favorite. For those looking for spirits or beer, Grapes & Grains offers a wide selection of choices at a great price. Unsure how many bottles of wine to buy for an upcoming dinner party? In-store kiosks are a unique feature Grapes & Grains has incorporated into the shopping experience to provide the best service. If you are looking for pairings, Grapes & Grains is sure to help with that as well.
The Barrington location was the only option for lifelong resident and owner Matt Amaral. He saw potential in this growing community and he was right. “As a lifelong resident of Barrington, opening a Fine Wine shop in my hometown feels like I am providing a public service for the East Bay community.” Stop by Grapes & Grains Monday-Thursday 10:00 a.m-8:00 p.m. Friday-Saturday 10:00 a.m-8:30 p.m. or Sunday 12:00 p.m-5:00 p.m. and see why Rhode Island Monthly named it the best Liquor Store in East Bay and Barrington!
