Gold Winner Bishop’s Cellar
Silver Winner Rockhead Wine + Beer Market
Bronze Winner The Port by NSLC
Comforting, warm and impeccably balanced is Bishop’s Cellar, the waterfront destination for wine lovers and spirited spirits fans looking for some potent potables sold with expert knowledge. The north end’s Rockhead Wine + Beer Market, meanwhile, has a bolder taste that pairs well with its attached grocery shopping convenience. There’s nothing wrong with sharing a complex microbrew with some Our Compliments’ chips and to hell with you if you think otherwise. The NSLC’s new much-ballyhooed Port store—confusingly not by the ports and instead located on Clyde Street—takes home bronze.
