Hot Dish

Ley Jaynes, the peripatetic wine dealer, has moved again, and this may be his best space yet. Tucked into the center at Skillman and Live Oak, on Oram, the latest in the series of Grailey's offers everything the old store did and more. There's still the big space lined with wine, now housed in attractive cave-styled bins. But there's also storage room for people who want to buy cases but don't have space to keep them at home. And, of course, plenty of room for tastings, since Ley's place has always been not just about buying wine, but about enjoying wine. Several bottles are always open for tasting for a small fee, so you can try before you buy. Grailey's is that old-fashioned kind of store where customers linger. It's not just a source, it's a destination.
