We listen to Our Customers….

Our craft beer selection is bar none the best around in the Western Suburbs. Thanks for your comments on our ‘Yelp’ page…we appreciate your feedback and welcome your requests!

“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

Wines of Tuscany

Tuscany produces the third highest volume of DOC/G quality wines. Tuscany is Italy's third most planted region. This is partly because the soil of Tuscany is very poor, and producers emphasize low yields and higher quality levels in their wine. More than 80% of the regions' production is in red wine, so whether you like Chianti, Brunello, Vernaccia, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, you will be impressed by all the selections of this Italian region!

Nancy's Wine Picks

Hot Trends for 2019!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s the New Year and with that come predictions, resolutions and exciting new products that are projected to enter the wine world. Prosecco is leading the charge with more brunch goers and with it’s easy to drink, light alcohol and delicious flavors, I believe it will still lead the way to experimentation with other bubbles, Champagne, Cavas and also more mixed drinks including bubbles.

Natural wines are still an interesting and often misunderstood category.  According to the Raw Wine website, “Natural Wine is farmed organically (biodynamically) and made or rather transformed without adding or removing anything in the cellar. No additives or processing aids are used, and ‘intervention’ in the naturally occurring fermentation process is kept to a minimum. As such neither fining nor filtration are used. The result is a living wine – wholesome and full of naturally occurring microbiology.” But is it good? If a wine doesn’t taste good the enjoyment is lost. I think these wines, although may be good for you, have a learning curve that is still being discovered.
As we try to commit to better or healthier habits, wine still offers such terrific medicinal purposes that it should not be cut out of  your diet entirely. Discover regions that you have never tasted before. Go out of your comfort zone and be adventurous! Maybe this year buy better wines – quality over quantity!

When wine is involved, nothing is difficult. Cheers! Nancy
