A few years ago, while in Sonoma, our Wine & Spirits directors met Val at a mutual friends winery. Since then we’ve been proud and fortunate to offer Haraszthy Family Cellars who specialize exclusively in the production of hand crafted Zinfandels.
Val’s story is pretty unique in the wine business and began six generations ago in Sonoma, CA. Val’s two great-great grandfathers are well-known California pioneers and historic Sonoma legends. Read the rest of this entry »
Everyday we work to have the absolute best products readily available. When it comes to whiskey, we offer something a little different and something you’ll only find in a few select locations in the world. We’re talking about our Single Barrel Selections from the land of bourbon.
In the midst of the new craft distilling movement there are producers truly seeking to create something distinctive; I heard of a whiskey house in Chicago named Koval and I had to visit with husband/wife distillers Richard and Sonia to find out if they were producing something special.

This time of year we are often asked, “what wines should I pair with chili?” Read the rest of this entry »

Welcome to Sendik’s wine blog. Here we hope to entertain with insider info to what’s happening in the world of wine. Appropriately, I find myself clean and showered in Cochulgua Valley, Chile after an overnight flight to Santiago yesterday. Needless to say Chile has been a major player in the wine world for some time. And while I’ve always hoped of making this trip, the timing now couldn’t be better considering our economy and the wine choices we’re seeing our customers make (presumable because of the economic climate). However with the exceptional value of so many wines under $10, it’s easy to see why this category is doing so well. Read the rest of this entry »
