Side Dishes: Dedalus Stocks Up, Expands Hours

Dedalus Wine Shop, which used to be located in a tiny, out of the way spot on College Street, recently relocated. Now, owners Jason Zuliani and Tim Banks peddle their vino from a storefront on Battery Street, right next to Indigo salon. “We got really busy at the old space and we were bursting at the seams,” Zuliani explains. “We wanted to bring in a lot of new products.”

Now, with “four or five times more space,” the shop — which focuses on boutique and cult wines — has significantly increased its selection. “We’ve more than tripled the amount of product we have,” he guesses. “And we expect a lot more to come in.”

Although the room has allowed them to add bottles across the board, a few areas are increasing a bit faster than others. There are now “significantly more” wines under $20, Zuliani notes. They’re also growing their European offerings. “France and Italy are areas where we find quite a bit of value in particular regions that are off the beaten path,” he opines.

Another change? Longer hours. Patrons can now pick up bottles between noon and 8 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Despite the larger space, Dedalus is still holding its wine classes off site. The Wine 101 course, which teaches people how to “figure out what they like and how to ask for it,” he explains, takes place at 1/2 Lounge. Classes that focus on particular regions or styles are held at Three Tomatoes.
