My husband and I just decided to stop off and check out the store. We were greeted by the owner Françoise. He was kind enough to give us samples of his meats, cheeses, wine and liquors. All of them were amazing. But we particularly enjoyed the company and the store was absolutely beautiful. Definitely a pleasant surprise that we stumbled... More

My wife and I were traveling around the island where we spotted this place. We love wine, tapas, and local spots and this place was awesome! The man was super friendly and knowledgable and showed us so many wines to pair with our food. We also purchased cured meat, cheese, duck pate, and olives. Everything was so delicious we had...

We asked our concierge where we could find nice Gourmet Products so that our taste buds could take as much pleasure as our eyes; Sint-Maarten is really beautiful! He suggested us to go to the Grape wine gourmet shop. The store looks like the cave of Ali Baba: Grand Cru wines and champagnes, fine delicatessen, foie gras, fresh bread, coffee,... More

Great selection of alcohol and imported food. Some single malts I did not see in Philipsburg. Reasonable prices on cigars and jamon serrano - their 100 Grams of Bellota-Bellota Grand Cru was $1 less than the price in Spain. Decent selection of Puligny and Chassagne Motrachet. If you are staying a while in St Martin/Maarten and have a kitchenette and... More

Grape Wine in St. Martin was absolutely fantastic. The owners were extremely patient (especially with my rusty French) and made some terrific recommendations too. This is my second review written in many many years of travel. Plainly put, I vary rarely write reviews unless it is that good. Highly recommended. In fact, so much that I just sent e-mail to...

We loved this shop. I wish it was near my home. We bought some lovely French wine, cracker, salami, cheese, and olives. The owner was very friendly and helped us select our wine, which by the way, was wonderful.

My husband and I travel a lot and we decided to do this review because we were really impressed finding Grape Wine store on Saint Martin . It is a gourmet jewel. We like good food and appreciate a simple baguette with good cheese and a glass of wine . Does not have to be complicate to be good but... More

My wife and I always stay on the Dutch side of the island, but we always make a drive to buy our wine at Grapevine just outside of Grand Case. The selection of French wine is excellent and the owners, Francois and Veronica are very knowledgeable and welcoming. We first visited this store a few years ago when they first... More

We saw this wine shop next to the grocery store and decided to stop in. We were helped right away by owner who helped us find the right white wines for us. We found a nice collection of white wines which we took home. One unfortunately broke in our luggage, so make sure you package them adequately. I spoke with... More

Just got back from Saint Martin, where I had a wonderful time, and where I discovered this great wine shop. The selection of wines is really amazing, with great vintages of Bordeaux, good discovery from smaller region, and certainly the best offer of Champagne on the Island. Feel free to pass by, and François,the owner, will be happy to give... More
