NEW YORK — Fine wine retailer Millesima USA has announced the opening of a new NYC luxury flagship store on the Upper East Side. The new store, located at 1257 2nd Avenue (at E. 66th Street), New York, NY 10065, was designed by the global creative agency Malherbe, an international leader in luxury design, to reflect the stories of the wines in Millesima’s cellars and encourage visitors to embark on a memorable wine journey, featuring everyday wines and hidden gems. The implementation of the project has been completed by the Architect Angelika Adams of Angelika Adams Design and the Project Manager Julia Feydel of Jules Hospitality and Renovation With Passion as General Contractor.
“We are excited to host our customers for a unique wine experience in NYC, a premier retail space where clients can not only buy fine wine and collectibles but also come together to taste and engage directly with producers and wine experts in our beautiful new space,” says Hortense Bernard, Sales and Marketing Director for Millesima SA. “As always, our wine experts are eager to welcome both our existing and new customers into the store in the coming months, guide them in their wine journey, and bring this vision to life.”
With a foundation in Bordeaux, Millesima is a family-owned company oriented on providing its customers with high-end wines, incredible service, and expert wine knowledge. To their regulars, Millesima USA is a neighborhood wine store offering a variety of wines from Bordeaux and beyond, while online they have a large number of highly sought-after fine wines from around the world and offer the ability to purchase Pre-Arrivals and Futures to their customers across the United States. The brick-and-mortar New York store at 1355 2nd Avenue (between 71st and 72nd Streets) welcomed its first customers in 2006, marking the beginning of a new and exciting journey for the company. This move to the new, larger location will be a continuation of this journey, providing their customers with a luxurious experience with each visit.
Spreading over 5,200 square feet, the new retail location is over double the size of the previous store. Yet, amidst its grandeur, this expansive wine library skillfully preserves an intimate atmosphere, presenting iconic wines and delivering the unparalleled white-glove service Millesima USA is celebrated for. A corner retail space with windows facing north and east, the new store is inspired by the Imperial Library to stay true to the family-owned company’s luxury fine wine branding. “This flagship marks a new Chapter in the successful story of Millesima,” says Fabrizio Germano, General Manager of Millesima USA. “Our goal is to create a space that is more than a neighborhood wine shop. It’s a wine library where wine lovers can discover new references, revisit their favorites, discuss wine, have educational sessions and tasting, and meet with producers.”
