Each week, the Downtown Alliance features a local business. This week, we’ll introduce you to Rosetta Wines, at 40 Exchange Place.

Everything about Rosetta Wines feels more like an old living room than a Wall Street wine shop. The charming woodwork, quiet, relaxed feel, and low-key music—they’re all part of what owner Shermon Peters is hoping to achieve.

“We buy what we like to drink,” Peters said. “We like to be able to say ‘we’ve had that.’ It makes people feel comfortable.”

Wines from around the world, along with spirits, are available at this shop, tucked in the shadow of the recently converted residential tower 20 Exchange Place. The store caters to a new and growing residential community.

“It feels like a small town in the heart of Manhattan,” Peters said. “It’s amazing how friendly people have been.”
