Ancona's Wines and Liquors
My grandfather left Italy in 1912 destined for America and in search of a better life. After passing through Ellis Island he headed north and settled in the Branchville section of Ridgefield, Connecticut. With money earned from working in a local wire mill he purchased property and opened a general store. My Grandmother joined him from Italy and they soon started a family. My father, Nazzareno, was the first born followed by my Uncle Joe, Aunt Phylis and Uncle John. As their family grew so did their business. When prohibition ended the wine and liquor section of the general store had to become a business of its own and Ancona’s Wines & Liquors was born. After my Grandfathers passing my father took charge of the wine shop and my uncles and aunt watched over the food store. In 1980, my father with help from my mother Carol, moved the store from its original 500 square foot location to its current 4000 square foot building. Moving to the larger location enabled us to increase our selections. Read more »

This store carried a hard to find Cab that I was looking for, at a reasonable price. Ordering was easy and I had it within 4 days! Also, the packing was very secure so there was no change of breakage. Thanks, Ancona Wines; I'll be back!
