Verve Wine - Wine Store in Manhattan New York in Tribeca at 24 Hubert Street

Verve Wine:

We are proud to announce our partnership with Verve Wine owners, Dustin Wilson and Derrick Mize, to curate thematic wine selections specifically for our storage clients.  All wines are from top-notch producers and vetted for quality.

This partnership will grant easy access to a Master Sommelier, waive taxes on wines transported from Verve to our facility and open the door to limited selections,

along with vintage aged wines, otherwise difficult to locate.  For your convenience, the wine will seamlessly be added to current inventory.   

Dustin, a Master Sommelier, is best known for his position as Wine Director of 3 Michelin-starred restaurant, Eleven Madison Park. This expertise led him to a leading role in the critically acclaimed wine documentary, SOMM and later featured in the film’s sequel, SOMM: Into the Bottle.

Derrick, an experienced wine merchant with roles at Vinifera Imports and Italian Wine Merchants, later  co-founded, New York Vintners in 2006. His vast knowledge of European wines and secure relationships are necessary to procure unique, high quality selections.

In 2015, Mana Wine launched a programming arm with events such as wine tastings, winemaker dinners, classes, and seminars, all held at Mana Contemporary, one of the largest and most innovative contemporary art organizations in the U.S.
