I suppose you want to know about me. Well, I'm Debra, the proud owner of the site. I started off in the restaurant business in Chicago, and have been in the wine business for years. I've had the good fortune of traveling to many of the worlds wine areas, and am proud to bring you great wines from all over the world. I carry well known labels as well as wines that you will not find in stores. This means some wines are exclusive and will not be sold in large quantities. Some of our wines are made by producers that I have personal ties with, and they have agreed to private label wines and sell them only in the US. I will take good care of you and your order. We do not have a conveyor belt operation where you will be a 1-time order and lost in the shuffle. We may call you when we run low on your wine- so that you can re-order when we have the wine in stock! Though we continually monitor inventory to ensure product availability, there are times when products may be out of stock. If that occurs, we will email Read more »

  • Can anyone help me figure out the difference between the Dave Phinney (Orin Swift) Locations F1, F2 and F3 wines. I tried one that was listed as a 2011 vintage. I did not see the bottle and don't know which to look for. Do the 1, 2 and 3 correspond to vintage? Any clarification is appreciated.  Read More

It was also the most planted red grape in Spain, which still has like twice as much as anywhere else in the world. Relatively speaking they have even more Monastrell, but that's a different story....

Where is good, who makes the goo... Read More

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More

  • “Spat” means “late” in German. In (that crazy) German noun compounding, Spat + Burgunder = “late-ripener from Burgundy”. That, in turn, means Pinot Noir. Chances are good you’ve never seen a bottle of Spatburgunder, much less tasted one, but hopefully that soon changes. Today over one-third of German wine is red, and Spatburgunder is the leading...
