Customer Spotlight: Five Flights Wines and Spirits

Five Flights Wines and Spirits imports fine Italian wines, vermouths, liqueurs, and distilled spirits uniquely expressive of history and place, created using highest quality, mindfully sourced ingredients.

Karen Ruocco, founder of Five Flights Wines and Spirits, grew up in the farmlands of New Jersey and now happily ping-pongs between New York and California. She created Five Flights Wines and Spirits to bring some of the most distinctive, thoughtfully-crafted Italian wines and spirits to the finest wine lists, bars, and bottle shops in California and New York.

Five Flights is a fond homage to the birthplace of Karen’s wine career: a fifth-floor prewar brownstone walk-up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
