Sharing Our Passion
Let us pour you a new favorite.
Barrington had long been Rhode Island’s last ‘dry town’ but that all changed in November 2011. Lifelong resident and wine enthusiast, Matthew Amaral finally decided to end the prohibition and Grapes & Grains was opened in March of the following year.
Matt did not want to open just any bottle shop - Grapes & Grains has a focus on customer service and quality products outside of the mainstream. Whether it is from the smallest local craft breweries, exclusive estate vineyards, or hard-to-find single-barrel distilleries, our buyers seek out the best of the best.
Voted Rhode Island Monthly Magazine’s Best Wine Shop in the East Bay each year since the shop has been open, we strive for to bring our customers the best not only in fine wine, craft beer, small-batch spirits, and local artisanal goods, while delivering an unparalleled shopping experience. Our knowledgeable, discerning staff are always happy to provide recommendations and pairing suggestions.
We hope you will stop in and see what sets Grapes & Grains apart.
