“We’re trying to create a fun and simple environment for people to come, even if you are not a wine connoisseur,” says Steven. Dylan’s Wine Cellar, named after the Zwicks’ son, Dylan, is in Peekskill’s historic Standard House building —

— and is decorated with a historic feel, with custom-made wooden shelves and hardwood floors.

The shop specializes in affordable, everyday wines, with most bottles falling in the $10-$30 price range.

The wines are categorized as simply as possible, Zwick says, so all the varietals, or grapes, are together, no matter where they’re from. Also on the shelves: a good selection of spirits, including Hudson Valley vodka and other local brands. The store, which plans to host wine-tasting events on weekends, is close to the train station. Zwick plans to let commuters pre-order their bottles for quick pickup on the way home. — Latoya West
