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

  • Collosorbo Brunello 2001

    Snoothrank:

    We've cellared this for 2 years and decided to uncork in 2010. With A portobello osso bucco and finocchio/potato side, we thought we hit a winner! And to the very end of the meal the tannins were still developing. I think it will stay another year, my partner says he'll keep it another 3. I think that is stretching it.... Read More

  • Castello di Verrazzano Chianti Classico Riserva 1985

    Snoothrank:

    Chianti Classico riserva 1985 Cinquecentenario di Verrazzano, likely the best ... an amazing event it was to uncork it, decant it, let it sit for 2 hours and then pour it into a tall voluminous glass. The bocquet was out of this world and the taste!!! Extremely diasappointing to see no more merchants have this in stock. Luckily I have one more... Read More

  • I was recently at my wine store and picked up 7 or 8 bottles. I told the manager the horror stories of my experiences with chardonnay. He suggested I give Four Vines Chardonnay a try. So i bought it and brought it home. I had some friends over, and realized to my surprise it was a screw cap: embarrassed I put it back in the cooler. I'm stil... Read More

  • Domaine Fourrey Chablis 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This was not at all what you would expect from a typical Chablis - it was more like a California Chard. Instead of steely minerality and crisp citrus, this was pineapple, vanilla and melon with a golden color and a buttery texture, which would seem to belie oak and a much warmer climate than one finds in Chablis. Not sure what the explanation fo... Read More

  • St. Francis Zinfandel Zichichi Vineyards 2001

    Snoothrank:

    After reading what this site had to say about my 2001 bottle of St.Francis Zin, ... Zin, I could hardly wait to uncork it last night! This would be the first time I had ever actually tasted, purchased & let a bottle of fine wine sit for 8 long years, and it was worth every day of waiting. What a smooth berry delite to behold. Enjoy your bott... Read More

  • In my last post, I wrote about the dilemma I am facing in naming my personal wine project.  I said that I am 99% sure of what that name would be.  And before I unveil it here and my reasons why, let it be said that this is no press release in the vein of Snooths Wine Pairing application.  Kudos to the team for another quality extension of the br...
