How does the bottle shop work?
When we re-open for dine-in, online sales of bottles will be available through aptekapgh.com, but we ask for 24-48 hours notice for pickup of online bottle sales. A good portion of our bottle shop inventory will be available on a daily basis for in-person sales at the restaurant. All bottles are available for on-site consumption with a $15 corkage fee attached to the retail price.
What kind of wine do you sell?
We carry exclusively natural, organic, and biodynamic wine- or, in other words, wine made with minimal intervention in the vineyard and cellar, free of pesticides/herbicides/chemicals, made with native/ambient yeast, vegan, and typically unfined and unfiltered. Sulfur use is kept to a minimum, typically added in very small amounts at bottling. Not every producer is certified organic, for a variety of reasons, but every producer we carry is farming organically.
Can you ship wine?
We are not able to ship wine at this time.
Can I special order bottles that aren’t on your list or bottles that are sold out?
If you have questions regarding unavailable bottles, whether sold out or not on the list at all, please reach out to us via email.
Can I order online when you are closed?
Online ordering is available all the time - https://app.upserve.com/s/apteka-pittsburgh/ - please be aware that we require 24-48 hours to fulfill online orders, and are closed Mondays & Tuesdays.
Can you recommend some bottles?
There are a lot of bottles and a lot of producers on our list, which can be overwhelming, and we love to talk about all of them. We are happy to do so in person, on the phone, or through email.
