I have ordered from their online store a number of times and picked up at their Central Avenue location. The selection is the most impressive I have seen outside of Manhattan. Their prices are the lowest I have seen anywhere. A 1.75 L bottle of Stoli for just $29.99?! I drink a lot of fine wine and bourbon also and they have things you won't find anywhere else at mind blowingly low prices. This is the only place I shop.
I live about an hour and a half south of empire wine and always ordered online. The website was user friendly ,the prices were awesome and it was quick and timely. i just recently made the trip to the store for the first time and was just as impressed! The place is HUGE. you wouldnt think so looking at the store front. Selection from floor to ceiling (no lie!) and the staff was out of this world!! This place is a little piece of heaven!!
