Annmarie Guglielmo is a native of Saratoga Springs and pilates instructor with a bent for business.
“I had been working at another wine shop just outside of Saratoga when I got the idea to open my own wine and spirits business,” she said.
By the Bottle, at 11 Spring St., Saratoga Springs, across from Congress Park, is a boutique wine and spirits shop that opened on Oct. 26. It offers a variety of wines and spirits from New York and California wineries, as well as vineyards from France, Italy and beyond.
“It’s not the same as even five years ago,” Guglielmo said. “Better quality products are coming from New York state including cabernets and delicious sparkling wines.”
Other products are spirits including moonshine, whiskey, gin, vodka, and bourbon.
