A New Wine Shop That’s Worth the Trip
Jonas Andersen is tied to train stations. Coming from Grand Central Terminal, where he was the beverage director at Agern and the Great Northern Food Hall, he has just opened Folkways, a wine store in the former Croton Falls, N.Y., railway station. His new shop can take you to some uncommon destinations, with bottles from the Czech Republic and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, and lesser-known grapes like Italian canaiolo and French mauzac blanc. “There are great wines that are traditional in so many places, so why not highlight them?” he said. The shop also carries wine serving objects, books and magazines. Mr. Andersen and his partners — his wife, Natalie Marie Gehrels, and the sommelier Amanda Smeltz — spruced up the building, which had been a wine store for some 70 years.
