Your friends at Prime Burger Bar are doing something very different with this wine list. Something we do not think you will find elsewhere -tremendous quality with exceptional value. We were able to do this by working closely with wine importers and distributors to locate small lots of highly rated and often difficult to find wines at remarkably affordable prices…right here in our little corner in Commack.

We have carefully curated a selection of wines that are nearly all are rated 90 and above by Wine Spectator, widely considered to be the leading wine authority. Some have even made their Top 100 Wines of the Year list! We have added the reviewer’s notes so that you can find a wine that suits your taste. What you will not find here are the big markups typically found at restaurants serving fine wines. You will also not find any pretense; we love wine and want to share that passion with you.

What does a Wine Spectator rating of 90 or above mean? These are wines considered “outstanding” and characterized as wines of “superior character and style”. Of the thousands of wines tasted and rated by Wine Spectator very few combine the quality and value that we offer at Prime Burger Bar.

What further sets the Prime Burger Bar wine experience apart is that we also store and pour our wines at the ideal temperatures and serve them in high-quality stemware. We have selected glassware designed by Andrea Robinson, one of 26 women worldwide to achieve the

Master Sommelier credential. We think great wines at a super value, served properly, are a great accompaniment to the highest-quality burgers we serve at Prime Burger Bar. We hope you agree and encourage you to watch our list for updates.

RED WINES OF ITALY

Prunotto Barbaresco 2016
