Word on the street

Master sommelier Dustin Wilson and his talented teams on both coasts — in New York and San Francisco — have brought to retail the friendly, no-bad-choices approach to wine that we all wish for in restaurants.

This is hands down, pound for pound the best place in Chicago. Retail wine is amazing and well priced with humble and unparalleled knowledge. Service and food is the best you can get in Chicago. Perfect place to bring friends, family or just stop in alone for a glass of wine!

Between the always interesting emails and the way the website is set up, I feel like I can put a case of wine together pretty easily. I'm a fan.
