Addictive Boutique Wine and Tapas is a total delight. For all of you that were looking for a place in the neighborhood to go have a nice glass of wine in a quiet environment (no TVs, just you and your friends talking)—this is it. It's roomy, beautifully decorated, great music, and of course, has a great wine list and tapas. Love it and so happy to support these proprietors.

If somebody calls out sick at the Wine store, Patrick has to do double duty at either the wine bar or the beer bar. So all you have to do is cross the street and he'll come open the wine store. But days and hours posted on the yelp pages....

Went here for the first time last night--wonderful! Highly recommended! Aesthetically pleasing decor, attentive service, delicious wine and food, very nice atmosphere. A real boon to the neighborhood. I only wish it were closer to my apartment. We have not tried the Vietnamese sandwiches at their sister restaurant next door, but really looking forward to it.

Salud, Amor y Tiempo! Addictive Boutique Brings a Touch of Spain to Jackson Heights
Oct. 21, 2017

http://ediblequeens.ediblecommunities.com/drink/salud-amor-y-tiempo-addictive-boutique-brings-touch-spain-jackson-heights

East Elmhurst’s commercial lifeblood courses through Northern Boulevard, a bustling corridor of Latin American eateries, small businesses and car dealerships. At the corner of 87th Street, two improbable entrepreneurs have established a tranquil haven for local wine connoisseurs.

When I stop by Addictive Boutique Winery, proprietors Francisco Diaz and Patrick Duong are preparing for a routine Friday night wine tasting.

“I moved to Jackson Heights twenty years ago when I started attending FIT,” says Diaz. “I fell in love with the neighborhood. I never left.”

Diaz initially envisioned the boutique as a clothing store. After several months of poor sales, an employee suggested converting to a wine shop.

“I did not want to open a liquor store, so we decided to focus solely on small-batch wines,” says Diaz. In the same year, Diaz trained to become a certified sommelier. “It was a big change and a huge commitment but we were ready.”

Addictive began with a focus on Spanish wines in large part due to Diaz’s partnership with neighboring Despana Brand Foods, a family-owned chorizo manufacturer and Spanish culinary goods importer since 1971.

Hello Addictive! Just called to see if we could get in tonight (it's now 8:30 we wanted to come around 9:00) and were told it would be a 90-minute to 2-hour wait.

Congratulations on being so busy, but can you tell me--when is a good time to come when it IS possible to get in?

The first time we tried, it was the same thing--all booked up with no openings in sight, and we went someplace else. The second time we did get in--thought it was great--but now I'd love to know when does one have to get there to not have an impossible wait?

We live quite a long walk away and don't want to make the trip unless we know we can get in. Would love to have a time frame in mind--like, forget it if it's a weekend after 7:30 or whatever is the case. Weeknights I assume are better--or are you always this jammed?

Hi there,

We wished we are always jammed. :D I apologized for not able to provide you with a reservation last night. I hated to promised something and not able to delivered. The best time to walk over without a wait would be around 6pm or so including weekends.

I hope you can stop by again soon. Thank you for reaching out to us and I hope to meet you in person as well.

-Patrick
