Matt Franco, who earned his stripes at Mario Batali's Italian Wine Merchants, adds a personal touch at this boutique vino shop. He specializes in small-production bottles, including collectible selections, from France, Italy and America. Instead of the typical vineyard artwork, Franco decorates the small space with prints of one of his other passions—Formula One and Le Mans car racing.
