ABOUT LE GRAND TRIAGE
Your destination for wine, whiskey, classes, and more
We're into wine and whiskey not because it's fancy and expensive, but because it's fun and social. And that's why we're all about making great bottles accessible to everyone—no matter the price point. In our retail space, we feature a highly curated selection of bottles from around the world whose producers are totally transparent about their production methods. In fact, about 70% of our inventory is either organic, natural, sustainable, or biodynamic (and we promise that the remaining 30% aren't owned by Monsanto). When you're ready to browse our selection, our highly qualified team of wine professionals—including 2 certified sommeliers and several wine enthusiasts—is here to help you find the perfect bottle, whether it's something to pair with tonight's dinner, a wine to sip on with Netflix, or a boutique whiskey that you're looking to add to your collection.
In addition to the retail space, we teach a host of wine and whiskey classes that are perfectly tailored toward novices and experts alike, and host higher-end tastings for more serious wine aficionados. We're unpretentious about drinking and firmly believe that the most important thing about wine and whiskey is figuring out what you love to drink. We're here to help you figure that out. Cheers to that!
Owner & Manager
Eric took his first step into the wine world when he moved to New York and needed to pay the bills. But one thing led to another, and after a summer of wine-tasting with his Bordeaux-loving father, Eric caught a serious case of the wine bug, became a certified sommelier, and eventually opened up this shop. Eric's particularly knowledgable about Bordeaux and other French wine, but you can ask him virtually anything about wine and whiskey.
Marketing & Events Manager
Manon grew up in both France and California, where her parents took her on numerous wine-tasting road trips. Despite this early start in wine, Manon's first passion was food, and for several years she worked in the editorial sphere at a few major food publications in New York. Now at Le Grand Triage, she's returned to her wine-loving roots and is working toward becoming a certified sommelier.
Sergio Remon Alvarez
A native Madrileño, Sergio grew up as most Spanish kids do: enjoying the occasional glass of wine with parents at the dinner table. It wasn't until he tasted an incredible Ribera del Duero, however, that he became truly obsessed with the Spanish winemaking tradition. Now in New York, he's diving deep into the world of wine and studying to become a certified sommelier.
Annie's passion for wine was first sparked when her parents decided to open a wine bar in Long Island. She immediately put herself to learning everything about the field, and after long hours spent with wine books and wine glasses (hint: it takes lots and lots of tasting), she's now a certified sommelier with a wickedly expert palate—and one of our most popular class instructors.
