What We Offer

The wines we offer range in price from $10–$1,000. Regardless of cost, they are the finest available. Maurice's philosphy is that even though you may have a lot of disposable income, there's no point in spending it to subsidize radio and TV ads, distributor expense accounts, and other expenses of the wine trade normally passed on to consumers. In short, he is proud to offer his customers more steak and less sizzle.We also have wine tastings at our clients' homes for various charities. Our company is very active in many social and charitable organizations. Please call our wine store for more information on wine tastings.
