“This store has a great selection of beers.  The liquor and wine selection is great too.  You can pretty much find whatever your looking for and maybe something new if your feeling adventurous.”                  – Patrick from Chicago

“This place has everything I like, suitable for many price ranges! They get in beers that are hard to find. I was really impressed when I wanted PumKing beer, and they offered to call me when it actually came in, and reserve me some bottles until I was able to stop by— and they actually followed through on that!”                                    – Susanne from LaGrange

90 & Above Rated Wines

Most wine drinker's don't (and shouldn't) live by critics' scores alone, but they can be a great starting point for exploring fine wine. They have been judged "Outstanding" or better by the most influential wine publications and critics in the world — Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator magazine, Wine Enthusiast, Antonio Galloni's Vinous, the UK's Decanter magazine, etc. Such ratings can have a tremendous impact on prices, as collectors snap up the most highly-rated wines as soon as the ratings are published, and prices climb. But we've still been about to find a great selection of these outstanding wines that are still affordable for everyday drinking! Join us as we sample thru some wonderful examples from around the world.

Nancy's Wine Picks

Olé Olé Olé

Spain has always been one of my favorite areas to find delicious, value driven wines and it remains one of the world’s great wine-producing countries, consisting of nearly 3 million acres of grapevines, more than any other country in the world, even though it’s only the third largest producer in the world, after France and Italy.

Spain has well over 50 denominated regions, but undoubtedly, the best known region is Rioja, especially for its red wine. But there are many other Spanish wine regions that produce high quality wines, like Priorat near Barcelona, Ribera del Duero the north, or Jumilla the south of Spain. Jerez (sherry) is another type of Spanish wine, which is produced in the south, near Jerez in Andalusia.

There are over 100 Spanish grape varieties, both red and white. Even though the best known type wines are red, Spain also produces very high quality white wines. Rías Baixas in the north is well known for their Albariño. These wines have crisp acidity, citrus flavors and a long dry finish. Cava is Spain’s sparkling wine and made in the same method that Champagne is produced, but with different, indigenous grapes.

Among red varieties, Tempranillo is by far Spain’s most recognized grape with Garnacha a close second.  One of Tempranillo’s best qualities is it’s ageing capability for several years in oak and bottle, which softens the variety’s spiciness, while still keeping its boldness and tannins. The extended cost of aging explains why this style typically costs more, and can be identified when labeled with Reserva, which is aged for 3 years or Gran Reserva, aged for a minimum of 5 years. So if you see a Spanish wine with an older vintage, you can be thankful that they have aged it for you to drink!

As fall approaches, continue your search and turn to these wines to keep you warm and cozy.

When wine is involved, nothing is difficult.
