The People Behind the Pour House Perhaps you’ve always wanted your own personal sommelier to help you choose wines to go with home-cooked meals.

Owned and run by the husband and wife team of Dean Schaecher and Christa Finn, The Pour House evolved out of the duo’s 25 years in the food and beverage industry.

  • Yesterday was good, not good, and then pretty nice.  It all started with a nice massage for me while Sandra shopped at the mall.  After my massage I met her at the mall, in front of Seasons52, our favorite restaurant.  She was on the phone with an EMT, who called her from her parents home.  Three emergency vehicles were at the house because her ...

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.This topic is all about value...

  • With the New Year just around the corner, pop the cork on a sparkling wine and it’s jingle bells all the way. The days when Champagne had it all its own way are long gone for our wine shelves are now groaning with bubbles from all over the world.
