Folkways explores the art and culture of drinking through wine, spirits, and objects that evolve existing rituals and inspire new ones.
Our wine and spirits curation is guided by the desire for discovery: We highlight atypical regions, grape varieties, and styles of wine, focusing on diverse, naturally driven vintages, conscientious winemakers, and small production vineyards. Our similarly varied, considered objects range from handcrafted vessels and refined stemware to unusual homewares and conversation-prompting publications from around the world.
Whether it’s the artists who transform vines into the wine we sip, the artisans who craft the cups we clink, or the individuals who shape the places and ways we gather to share a glass, we strive to celebrate and cultivate community in our store and through our offerings.
Folkways is located in Northern Westchester in the 1917 landmark train station building of Croton Falls, New York, and founded by husband-and-wife team Jonas Andersen and Natalie Marie Gehrels, with wine and spirits curated and described by Amanda Smeltz.
