Welcome to UnCork-It. UnCork-It is the brainchild of owners George and Peter Stellas, both Chicago natives. The Stellas family has been in the grocery business for almost 80 years in Chicago and their stores have always been at the cutting edge of retail excellence. In March 2003 George took over running his downtown store liquor department and he immediately saw the potential and need to offer his customers the best prices in the city, yet in a very clean sophisticated environment. "The demographics of the wine and liquor customer has changed in the last few years and we wanted to build a store that addressed the changing customer base." Thus UnCork-It was born! – Description from markomkc

  • Oh DM, you're very incorrect about the sun.  (I know you were jesting, but...) we've had almost no rain for the whole summer.  It's been between 75-80 everyday with not a cloud in the sky.  Best summer I can remember.  Also, in the Okanagan valley, they've had record temperatures this summer (nearing 110f, bodes well for the cab?).    Thanks, I'...

  • Hi All,Last night I went to an event called "Uncork Your Palate" in Victoria.  It was a fundraiser for the Victoria Conservatory of Music (a music school, like a mini Juilliard), so was a good cause.  There was continuous music and very good food (like the one in Seattle) where many of Victoria's best restaurants served very fresh seafood appeti...

  • Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010


    Over the past 20 years I have tried 400 to 500 bottles of red always wondering - what's all the hubbub about? I was becoming disappointed until I ran across 05 Kobalt. It opened a new door. I finally felt I was getting my money's worth. Have been through 11 cases of 05 and 06 with friends and family- this is it. We all agree - for the money -... Read More

  • Through snooth.com, UnCork-It showed pricing and availability for a 2005 Bordeaux in which I was interested. I placed an order, and they gladly took my credit card information.
