About Us

In 2009, Nini's Wine Cellar's first brick & mortar store was established in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Starting out as a retirement project for Dr. Govindan Gandhi, the store quickly developed a cult following for occasional wine drinkers and master sommeliers alike.

Dr. Gandhi's love for wines and spirits has birthed a new standard in alcohol retail. Every product we sell is carefully selected based on the good Doctor's philosophy of getting the best value and character from each grape and grain.  

Nini's Wine Cellar is the New Yorker's best kept secret for artisanal wines and spirits from small producers. Looking for organic? No sulfites? A female tequila maker? Absolutely, we have all your needs under one roof.

As you peruse our website, please pay attention to the various tags and descriptions. We offer many categories you rarely see. Whether it's locally sourced, Demeter certified, Wine Spectator Top 100, biodynamic, vegan, or all natural; we have combed every agricultural region to bring you a diverse list of libations you should try at least once in your life. Think of us as your personal wine geeks.

Oh, and if you are ever in the neighborhood, come and say what's up to Dr. Gandhi and the staff. We are at your service every day from 2pm - 10pm.
