What is a better way to shop for wine than outside your own front door? Sharing the same building as Liberty Harbor East, Bin 604 allows you the ease and convenience of purchasing from a selection of some of the best wines. Carrying wines that cater to your everyday drinking to rare wines for collecting, Bin 604 has what you need. Try some of their new offerings, such as Chateau Pigoudet L'Oratoire Rose 2021, that tastes like a summery fruit blend of strawberries, apricot, melon, orange zest, and Spring Flowers. Or, if you prefer something a little more bold than sweet, the Daou Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 is centered around boysenberry and cherry, fruit-flavored with subtle nuances of sage and menthol.
If you are planning to utilize the pool at Liberty this summer, you may want to consider trying some of Bin 604’s canned wines. As no glass is allowed in the pool area, Bin 604 has you covered. Old Westminster Farm Fizz has the best fruity summer taste, with a flavor blend consisting of green mango, pineapple, and lemon. Or, try something like Xarmant Txakoli, which gives you a tangy citrus flavor that is perfect for afternoons by the pool. Be sure to stop by on May 25, National Wine Day, to stock up for the opening of the pool on the 26th!
Whether you want a traditional Rose, or want to try a unique wine, Bin 604 has it all for you to enjoy throughout the entire summer.
