Food & Drink

One of the things we’re most proud of in Amherst is the wealth of dining options available Downtown. How many towns can boast an African restaurant across the street from a gourmet French restaurant, or a locally-grown Chinese restaurant across the street from an award-winning brunch place? And that’s not even considering our excellent cafe culture! Come downtown and check it out.

Email: Amherst Wines & Spirits is totally dedicated to the enjoyment and learning of wine. Our shop features a selection unlike most others – many labels you won’t find elsewhere. This is because, in selecting wines for the shop, we care about only two things – what does the wine taste like and what does it cost. If it does not taste like what’s on the label (a Chianti, for instance, should taste like Chianti) or if the price is too high for what we’re tasting, we don’t stock it. Pretty simple actually.
