Side Dishes: Dedalus Wine expands again

Three years ago, Jason Zuliani and Tim Banks moved their flourishing wine shop, Dedalus Wine, from a tiny spot on College Street to a quadruple-sized space on Battery Street. At the time, Zuliani told Seven Days, “We got really busy at the old space and we were bursting at the seams. We wanted to bring in a lot of new products.”

He could have been prophesying the future, because even that second space proved insufficient. “We’re kind of addicts, so we filled that space quickly,” says Zuliani with a shrug. This week, Dedalus will move again, to an even larger, light-filled space in the new Waterfront Plaza at 180 Battery Street.

The Dedalus crew will close the shop for three days this week to cart over its eclectic collection of small-batch and boutique wines, and reopen in the new space on Saturday. Zuliani and Banks plan to hire one or two new employees.

“It will offer a whole new buying experience, and it will be easier for people to find things,” says Banks. The extra space will also give the staff more leeway to pursue their tastes for “terroir-driven” and hard-to-find wines — for instance, “orange wines,” white wines that derive deep hues from increased skin contact during maceration.

In addition to two walls of windows, the new shop features a not-so-brittle hardwood floor that “will resist if a bottle hits the ground,” says Zuliani. It happens.
