Can anyone tell me if you can find ice wine in stt or stj? My wife and I will be staying at Concordia Eco tents the third week in November 2014. She absolutely loves the stuff. I was wanting to start and end our trip with a bottle. Any info would be much appreciated.
Check Gourmet Gallery on STT (two locations). They used to carry it and still may.
A friend visiting from Canada brought some as a gift a few months ago. I'd not had it before; nice flavor, quite sweet!
In Red Hook St. Thomas there is a new grocery store called Moe's Market, they have a good wine selection. Haven't looked for it there, but perhaps they might have it.
You may also want to check on St John the liquor/wine store across from Starfish Market, as well as the new wine store Island Cork that recently opened up behind Mongoose Junction (I have no idea if they have ice wine, but you never know). Good luck!
I have to brag on island cork a little bit here. I inquired about the ice wine and mr Paul was very quick to respond. He didn't have what I was looking for but got it ordered! It will be there when I arrive! This guy and this store will now get all the business I can get him. Remarkable customer service. 5 stars!!!
That is great news! I am usually reluctant to recommend somewhere that I have never been, but knew it had recently opened (I saw it either this past June, or actually probably this past December - the store is on the 2nd floor in the building directly behind Mongoose). So glad it worked out - sounds like they have a new customer for life! Enjoy your upcoming trip to (or back to) St John.
