Lynfred Wineries - Vin de City White         
A medium bodied blend with aromas of flowers, melon & pears, with a clean & fruity finish. Great with salads, cheese or dessert.

Wollersheim Winery - Chardonnay

Full-bodied with aromas of vanilla and spice. Nicely balanced with a buttery finish. Pairs well with fish, white meats, or white sauces.

Silver Lake - Sauvignon Blanc
Tropical fruit and heavy grapefruit flavors. A dry white with distinctive herbaceous aromas often leaning into the sweet smell of fresh cut grass and dried Italian herbs. Best enjoyed with fish and chicken dishes.

August Hill Winery - Seyval Blanc
Citrusy and crisp, the Seyval Blanc is a great table wine. Pairs well with shrimp (hint, hint) and can handle the heat of spicy food. This wine could be considered a similar style to a Pinot Grigio.

Cedar Creek Winery - Pinot Grigio
This classy white has aromas of roses on the nose and flavors of ripe pears on the palate. Serve chilled with light pasta dishes.

Wollersheim Winery - Prairie Fume
Crisp and bursting with flavors of citrus and tropical fruits. Semi-dry with nice structure and vibrancy. Pairs well with appetizers, seafood, pasta, or grilled foods.
Nationally acclaimed Double Gold & Gold medal winner!

Cedar Creek Winery - Waterfall Riesling
A semi-dry Riesling, fermented like an Alsacian wine from northeastern France. It has fruit flavors reminiscent of apricots and pears. Enjoy chilled with pasta, seafood, oriental dishes, grilled foods and salads.

August Hill Winery - Vignoles         
Light-bodied wine with tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Hybrid French-American grape grown in Illinois. This wine is similar to a Riesling.

Wollersheim Winery - River Gold
Seyval Blanc grapes make a delicate and juicy sweet dessert wine with a hint of sweet pears and mangos on the finish. Very enjoyable as dessert or with desserts, such as cheesecake.

August Hill Winery - Moscato
This slightly sparkled wine is elegant with a fruity bouquet of peaches and honey and has an excellent balance between its level of sweetness and acidity.

August Hill
Winery - Sweet Catawba         
Sweet Catawba has aromas and flavors of Jolly Ranchers candy, but has a well balanced acidity, making this a very refreshing sweet wine. Catawba pairs well with light fish dishes, cheese and crackers.
Table White - Frey Natural White (California)
Bottle $17.50
Organic bright and crisp dry white wine filled with pleasant flavors of ripe melon and pear.
Pinot Grigio - Tre Fratelli Delle Venezie (Italy)
Flavors of honey-pear, apple and citrus flavors with a mellow finish with hints of white pepper spice. Serve with grilled seafood, poultry and dishes in white sauce.

Pinot Grigio - Mo-Velt Grüner Veltliner (Austria)
Refreshingly light dry wine with peppery spice and fruity flavors. Freshly elegant balance nicely with mineral and herbal characteristics. Perfect for any occasion. Think of a “spiced” Pinot Grigio.

Chenin Blanc-Sauvignon Blanc  - Oak Lane (South Africa)
70/30 A tantalizing blend, this wine offers guava and other tropical flavors, balanced citrus nuances and hints of green pepper. This crisp and refreshing wine is served wonderfully on its own but will compliment salads and seafood.
Scored 85 Points Wine Enthusiast Best Buy.

Sauvignon Blanc - Mussel Bay (New Zealand)
Packed with bright fruit, from nectarrine and peach to orange and kiwi. Crisp and lean, finishing dry. Compliments chicken and salads with a light vinaigrette.

Table Red - Frey Natural Red (California)
Organic medium body, well balanced and smooth with a bright garnet hue. Crisp and fruity finish.

Scored 90 Points Wine Advocate and Gold with Gilbert & Gaillard.

A word about craft beer. We like to support small business even when it comes to beer. Getting into drinking craft beer is something that a lot of people are doing. The reason for this is because a lot of people are really starting to venture out and enjoy the taste and quality of their beer. People are starting to take into consideration that a hard working person deserves a beverage made by a person who worked just as hard as they do. Our craft beer selections come from the Chicagoland area and Louisiana. Please enjoy responsibly!

You can purchase food, wine and/or beer to take home. Of course it always tastes best in our dining room!

We have many “vintage finds” for sale. New items come in weekly. Visit us often!

We are currently looking for consignors!
