It is impossible to visit Nautical Wheelers without finding something dazzling, whether it’s the latest in clothing and shoes or the latest offerings from trendy jewelry lines.

But the next time you visit Nautical Wheelers, start in the Wine Room in the back of the store and work your way forward.

The store offers over 50 labels of wine, and is always getting new ones.

“The staff is helpful and knowledgeable about the wines we carry,” said General Manager Chrissie White. “A lot of the wines are handpicked from small, family-owned vineyards. Staff can help you pick a great wine and wine accessories for yourself or as a gift.

“We have jewelry for all styles and ages,” Chrissie said. “Rain is known for its big colorful pieces to make a statement, while Periwinkle draws younger customers to the stud trio packs with nautical themes. Silver Forest is made in the USA with assorted designs to match any outfit. Any of our pieces make fun gifts.”
