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!  

Tastings and Events

We offer multiple free tastings a week ranging from wine, beer, cheese, gourmet foods and eventually spirits. We also have various events at the store ranging from holiday events, town-specific events or fundraisers and private events. Watch our weekly newsletter for details.

The Academy

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.

The Vin Bin Café and Food To Go

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. Look for our popular take home items in our grab and go case.

We're thrilled to continue to serve you with everything The Vin Bin has to offer.
