About us

In November of 2011, after a lot of hard work, Barrington finally ended it's tenure as RI's last "dry town", and lifelong resident (and wine enthusiast) Matthew Amaral, was issued a Class A liquor license. It didn’t take long for Matthew to realize his longtime dream and in March of that year he opened the beautiful wine shop, Grapes & Grains.

With a genuine focus on customer service and passion for quality products outside the mainstream, we aim to be the perfect shop to pour you a new favorite.
