Bottlerocket is a new kind of wine, beer, and liquor shop that has opened up in Westport. They actually got their start in NYC and won #2 wine shop in NYC from Zagat. Yes, rather than sticking with just the classic way of organizing wine by varieties or regions, Bottlerocket also helps you select the perfect wine by leading you to the perfect pairing. There’s themes of seafood, meat, poultry, treats, take-out, recipes, organic, gift wines, and even more. Plus, throw in an awesome variety of wine and liquor with more than 4,000 square feet and you’ve got a killer liquor shop
