Thank you for a wonderful year. Happy Holidays!

Our main focus at The Wine Cask is to deliver value. We believe that value in wine is not defined by the lowest price; rather it’s where quality and reasonable price coincide.

We were one of the first stores to publish a monthly newsletter that included great-value ‘Wines of the Month,’ and we still do it. During the fifty years we have been serving our customers in Somerville and Cambridge the wine world has grown immensely, and we have grown with it. The diversity of wine is its greatest virtue and we seek it all over the world.

Our store has around two thousand different wines to choose from, and almost all of them have been tasted by a staff member. If you don’t see what you’re looking for we are more than happy to special order a single bottle for you.
