Salem Wine Imports

Salem Wine Imports, Salem, Massachusetts

We are so fortunate to be located in the center of downtown Salem.  There are so many cool shops, restaurants and attractions, all within walking distance of the historic Hawthorne Hotel.

One of those cool shops is this one, located at 32 Church St. just across the street from Turner Seafood which is in the old Lyceum Hall building.


As you can see they also sell a nice selection of beer, as well as some handy gifts related to wines and beers.

Here is some information from their website, including information about their informative and delicious wine tastings:

Dedicated to the discovery and enjoyment of unique wines!

Salem Wine Imports, located in historic, downtown Salem, Massachusetts. Our simple philosophy is that wine is a common treasure available to all and that the discovery and enjoyment of wine is a life enhancing pleasure, almost,without peer.  Unique, singular, natural and rewarding, every glass can be thought-provoking and contemplative, or unassuming and unobtrusive, as the mood may be.

At Salem Wine Imports, we have carefully selected wines that come from small producers, who grow their own grapes and have been making wine for generations. We taste all wines before we purchase and refuse many.  You will find few commercial brands here, instead, we stock wines that have a sense of place, along with tastes of the soil and region, of its birth.  We focus on small production artisan wines, where sometimes "faults” (as in deviating from the norm), are actually attributes, making the wine unique and more enjoyable.

We welcome all those that appreciate wine, from the casual enthusiast, to the expert aficionado. Stop in and try something new, we always have a few available to taste or join us for our weekly wine tastings on Tuesday or Thursday nights at 6:30pm.

Taste for yourself what Thomas Jefferson, “good wine is a necessity of life for me” and Plato, “Nothing more excellent or valuable than wine was ever granted by the Gods to man...", realized lifetimes before us.

Every Tuesday & Thursday, 6:30-7:30pm, we have wine tastings in the store.

Here is a link to their webpage with hours and directions:

If you do stop in, be sure to tell Kathy Genis, the proprietor, that the Hawthorne Hotel sent you.

Thank you.
