Best Wine Store
Best garden center, readers, downstate: Ronny’s Garden Center Photograph by Pat Crowe II, www.patcrowephotography.comCritics, upstate: A oenophile can get lost for hours in Kreston Wine and Spirits, so Bob and Don Kreston and their savvy staff are great at steering customers toward a new favorite vintage. Wine expert Andrzej Barabasz says the Kreston staff tracks down smaller vintners from around the globe to uncover hidden gems for their eclectic clientele. For further guidance, check out the wine tastings held every Saturday at the Wilmington store and new Middletown location. (448 E. Main St., Middletown Crossing, Middletown, 376-6123 ; 904 Concord Ave., Wilmington, 652-3792)

Critics, Downstate: When customers at Teller Wines raved about the Baywood Cellars Pinot Noir they’d enjoyed at nearby Half Full restaurant, Lesley Cowan and the Teller Wines staff knew they had to stock their shelves with the new local favorite. It’s just an example of how the Lewes wine store caters to its customers. The owners host weekly tastings, select by hand every bottle on the shelf and keep their prices relatively low. Most of the inventory checks in at under $15. (17515 Nassau Commons Blvd., Lewes, 644-7400; 1201 Savannah Road, Lewes, 644-2566)
