Well lookie here, a new wine shop is opening at Havemeyer and S. 1st St. in Williamsburg just across from the neighborhood's not-organic/pre-gentrification grocery destination C-town. Called Nini's Wine Cellar and—judging from the semi-stocked wooden shelves and flourishing plants inside—looks to be opening soon. Finally, a place to grab wine near the market without having to go to all the way to Union and Metropolitan. Or S. 4th and Marcy. Or Grand and Roebling. Or Driggs and N. 8th. Or?
