Tappan Loss Is Sparkill Gain

   I've blogged about the Grape D'Vine- my favorite wine shop in the area.  Its owner, Joe Prinz, is an all-around great guy who really knows his stuff oenologically speaking (and who doesn't speak oenology?)  At any rate, Joe will soon be moving his shop from Main Street in Tappan to the village green in Sparkill.  The property he bought has two buildings on it, and he substantially rebuilt one, which will be the new wine shop location.  The other building, which formerly housed the sweet little restaurant Relish, will house a wine bar along with a wood-fired pizza oven.  The wine shop will open first, and while I'm a little sad to lose such a great business on Main Street in Tappan, I'm glad that Joe's new place is just a little more than a mile down the road from my house.
