Hardly know a Chardonnay from a Cabernet? Whether you’re bringing a bottle to a holiday party or just wondering what to have with dinner, head to Wine in Due Time, a boutique wine shop on the Yonkers waterfront whose center section is organized by food pairings, from salad to barbecue. This is a great help even if you do know some of your stuff, especially if you’re in a hurry—and they’re just as strong in the bang for your buck department, too. If you prefer to shop by region, browse the very manageable, narrowed-down selection on the walls, displayed with a refreshing amount of white space between bottles. All are highly rated wines carefully selected by the store’s knowledgeable, passionate owner, Sepi Pashaie (whom you’ll meet in this video). Stop by for complimentary tastings on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 8 pm.
