New liquor store opens in Lauderdale

Ocean Wine and Spirits, a luxury wine and spirits boutique, has opened a new store at 2901 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale, just north of Bahia Mar and Hall of Fame marinas.

The store will focus on the luxury residential and yacht market that surrounds it, according to owner Monty Lalwani, who also owns a more tourist-centric store on A1A near Sunrise Boulevard.

Ocean Wine’s yacht provisions director is Fernando Miles Jewett, who left Crown Wine & Spirits after 11 years to partner with Lalwani to service the yachting sector.

“This is a chance for me to use my expertise to contribute to the building of the business,” Jewett said, noting that decisions can be made and orders can be filled more quickly at a smaller company. “We will offer the best balance of price, service and selection, as well as my 17 years of experience in the wine industry.”

An International Sommelier Guild-certified sommelier, Jewett will also serve as wine buyer for the business. Ocean Wine and Spirits offers free deliveries to local marinas and has a loyalty points program.
