You are certain to recognize the Southborough staff. We are very happy to have on board Erin, Carol, Denise, Steve, Mike, Kelsey and cookie chef, Paula Clapp. That's right, Chef Paula will continue to deliver cookies and Panzano bread.
Some of you already know The Vin Bin in our Marlborough and Hopkinton locations but if you don't,
we're a wine, artisan cheese, craft beer, and now fine spirits company with an award winning café.
Here's what to expect at the Southborough location:
Fine International Wines
A purveyor of fine international wine, some of which
we buy directly from vineyards we visit each year. A
consistent pulse on the best quality wines at the best
value. Five of our staff have WSET Wine Certifications.
Craft Beer, Spirits and Cigars
Dynamic selection of craft beers, quality spirits (when license approved) and fine hand-rolled cigars. Aaron Aykanian is notorious for tracking down hard to get craft beers for our customers. Everyone should get to know Whiskey Dan, our spirits savant. Dan works in Marlborough and will be spending time in Southborough.
Best Variety of Cheeses
We have two cheese experts on staff, Edi Raines,
the Cheese Mossad, and Rick Lombardi, store owner.
Each year, we visit farms, cheesemakers and cheese
shows across the country to find new and exciting
fromage. We have relationships with farmers and
even know certain animals by name!
Education is as important as the quality of our products. We offer a wide variety of classes to satisfy our customers interests, three semesters a year - fall, winter and spring. Each class is run by wine educator Marianne Haldoupis. Click here for a list of classes and to register online. Classes fill up quickly.
Gifts, Specialty Items and Foods
The Vin Bin was awarded best gift shop in Marlboro for its creative and desirable gift baskets. Custom made using only our highest quality goods, gift baskets will be created out of our Southboro location. Gourmet dry goods, chutney, jams, honey, fig spreads, membrillo, crackers (gluten free as well), olive oil, and balsamic vinegar are among our list of specialty foods.
Community Giving and Local Focus
As part of our mission,
we give back to the community that supports us.
We’ve donated thousands of dollars of merchandise
to hundreds of organizations over the years. Over the last ten years, we have
worked to build strong relationships with local
wineries, distilleries and farms to bring you the
very best with a focus on local.
Awarded and acclaimed as the best lunch spot in the
Metrowest. Headed by Chef Mike Lombardi, accomplished
and classically trained chef. The café provides exquisite
sandwiches, soups and salads with local fresh ingredients.
