Business: The Study Fine Wines & Spirits
Location: 1066 North St., Greenwich
Opened: December 2010
Owner: Katie Stephens and Noah Goldberg
How long have you been in business?
Almost 4 months.
Why did you bring your business to Greenwich?
Noah and I grew up in Haddam-Killingworth, Connecticut, and lived for many years in Manhattan. Greenwich is the perfect middle ground between our family and NYC connections. We were truly fortunate to secure a liquor license in an area this beautiful and convenient. Most of all, Greenwich is filled with residents who are interesting and interested in the wine and environment we offer.
What is the most important thing your business has taught you?
That the saying is true: Success is when work doesn't feel like work.
What is the funniest/most interesting thing that happened to you at work?
After about two hours of building a snowman during our first snowstorm, we heard some muffled shouts. We looked up to see our neighbors across the street at the Chase Bank cheering, "Yeah Noah," through the window.
Describe a typical day.
The day is filled with dusting, decorating, restocking, wine tasting, piano playing, networking, ordering, preparing for wine events/classes and helping customers find just what they are looking for.
What do you wish you knew when you started out?
We are still so new, but at the moment I wish I synced my QuickBooks with our finances from Day 1.
What does the future look like?
Connecting with our new neighbors in Greenwich, teaching, writing, learning, tasting and sharing great wine.
