This satellite location of the popular Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket is much more than a wine-and-cheese shop, setting its focus on the gourmet, imported, rare and international. The family-owned and operated store is known for its large selection of spirits, wine and beer from around the world and friendly, unpretentious service by knowledgeable staff.
Looking for beer? They have all the national brands, and probably all the local brands you're looking for. Spirits? Acquistapace's Wine & Cheese has assembled an extensive selection of aged whiskeys, bourbons & scotches from the finest distilleries in America, Scotland, Ireland, Canada and Japan. Unique to this location is a walk-in humidor with fine, hand-rolled cigars from around the world.
To pair with the vast selection of beverages: a staggering array of cheeses (their annual Cheese Extravaganzas held each fall at the Covington store are legendary) along with everything you could want for a well-rounded charcuterie board--cured meats, preserves, olives, jellies, fruits and nuts. Here you'll find a variety of Louisiana-made and imported prepared foods, including fine raw meats, sushi-grade seafood, infused oils and dressings, cocktail garnishes, caviar and various other gourmet items. Plus, all the kitchen gadgets, barware, glassware, gift baskets and supplies for your home bar or dinner party--and gifting to the gourmand in your life.
