With 3,000 bottles that span the globe, it’s easy to get lost in the wine list at The Modern. Better to let Michael Engelmann and his able sommelier team navigate, so you can spend your time gazing out at MoMA’s sculpture garden, or focusing on chef Abram Bissel’s elegant, opulent cuisine. The wine list goes deep in classics and back vintages, especially in France and Germany. Or, they can steer you toward something less expected, like a Yarra Valley nebbiolo from Luke Lambert or chenin blanc from Testalonga in Swartland.
