This is a great place to get to know and understand wine. Nick, the owner (or any of the other employees), will most likely remember your last bottle purchased and they'll do their best to steer you to something else you might like next time you visit.

I consider myself lucky to have such a great wine shop in my neighborhood!

Pros: Most of their wines are not run-of-the-mill

Cons: They should stay open later than 9pm weeknights!

When I moved to Brooklyn from Manhattan nearly two years ago, I was sad to give up my neighborhood wine shop. That lasted only until I stumbled into Sip! Nick and all of his staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It's clear that they all actually love wine and that they taste what they sell. If you're adventurous, they'll look at what you've bought in the past and make recommendations based on that. At Sip the service is very personalized, delivery is cheerful and the mixed-case discount is excellent! I have never had a disappointing bottle of wine from Sip - it's like having your own sommalier.

Pros: well chosen and diverse selection, friendly and knowledgeable staff who will remember you

Cons: i always leave with more than I can really carry!

Don't really understand the boutique appraoch. The staff is never very friendly (sometimes borderline surly) and aren't particularly helpful in choosing wines. The closest two shops are much less impressive from the exterior but ultimately have more of what you would expect from a smaller store and have a wider variety of prices.

Where do I start? I've never been disappointed with any bottle of wine I've bought at Sip whether it be from the tasting on Saturdays or from the staff's recommendation. They have a good representation of many different wine regions and price ranges. I'm happy to be a Sipster.

Pros: Knowledgeable staff, variety, value, ambience

While visiting family in the area, I was pleased to stumble across this fabulous new wine shop! I was so impressed by their varied selections and pricing that not only did I purchase a bottle of wine for my cousin and his wife, but also a gift certificate for them to use at their leisure. The owner and staff were very knowledgeable with regard to their wines and readily provided me with several recommendations within my price range, which for the record was to stay close to $20 per bottle. The displays were lovely and browsing was a pleasure. The staff was attentive, without being pushy. My only disapointment was that we don't live in the area and therefore can't shop there with any regularity. I was truly pleased when I mentioned this to the proprietor and found out that he will ship wines to me, overnight, which I have since done several times, with great success. Meanwhile, my cousins shop at SIP often, having used up that gift certificate long ago!

Sip is great, a lovely (fairly recent) addition to the neighborhood. They have a diverse selection across all price ranges. I'm surprised and perplexedf by the guy's post that it's depressing and that they try to upsell. Perhaps "lye back" is what some folks perceive as depressing? And the one time I bought a mixed case for a party, Nick almost preternatually met the dollar average I was looking for

Yes, sometimes a wine you've become fond of won't be available, but I think that's the nature of a shop that is thoughtful and exploratory in what they offer, rather than just offering up standard plonk.

Sip does a weekly wine tasting on Saturdays, if you live in the neighborhood it's a great opportunity to try new things.

What I find singular about them is that the owners are not wine snobby in the least (despite their educated palated), they will meet you at whatever level you're at if you seek guidance on selection. If you ask for a description of what biodynamic culture means, you'll be met with a forthright description (rather than, I'm so sorry you [stupid person -- I wanted to use a word for Jamaican chicken but CitrySearch's filters objected to that, surprisingly} that I have to educate you on this),.

They are also very careful on how they chill their whites, they rotate everything very carefully .

Last, I'd just say they epitomize what I love about Brooklyn (at 5 years here after many years in Chelsea, I'm fairly a newbies). They are very personable, and heartfelt in what they're doing, and help shape the sense of community that is here.

I'm disappointed in this local wine store. The appearance is very pleasant and the service is OK, but the atmosphere feels weirdly depressive and the greetings are way less than warm. The first three or four times we shopped there, we were steered to substandard, uninspired wines. For a boutique shop, that's unacceptable. My girlfriend wanted to keep trying the place since it's conveniently located, so we have given it additional business. Invariably, when I cite a price range, the first thing I am shown exceeds that range by several dollars. On the one occasion I HAVE been impressed with a recommendation, the store had run out of the wine by the time (2-3 days later) I returned to buy more and wasn't able to steer me to something comparable. I know a bit about wine and I'm articulate in expressing my preferences, but the staff don't seem to know what to do with that input. Honestly, I'd love to love this place and believe strongly in supporting local businesses, but between the lukewarm greetings, the lackluster wines, and the difficulty responding to my price parameters (i.e., poor listening skills), I'm running out of good will and am pretty convinced the place is more style than substance.

Cons: Disappointing recommendations; less than warm reception for customers

Great selection of "boutique" wines with something for everyone, by far the most interesting selection of wines in the Slope - and the "hot men" working there make this a must go to wine store for Park Slope "sipsters" (the guys are also friendly and happen to know alot about wine). I have bought one bottle and/or cases for special events - the staff is always happy to work with whatever budget I give them.
