Most every Sat. they have wine out for tasting, once a month a lot of wine in their back room open for tasting, and other special events, mostly free.

Skip Binnys & visit the family-owned Schaefers for a great wine selection and great service. Grab some gourmet goodies while you are there. They never disappoint!

Schaefer's is my go to place for gifts and fine wines. Salespeople are extremely knowledgeable and always find exactly what I am looking for. Gift wrapping available. Gourmet deli for cheeses and appetizers.

Has everything, both the usual and specialty or unusual wines. Schaefer's is best defined by the quality of services, their helpfulness is never matched. Love the wine tasting on Saturdays, as well as the warehouse sales.

This upscale wine and liquor store also features a boutique deli with fine meats, cheese, pates, condiments... Also great service.. Great place to fill your picnic basket on your way to Ravinia for a concert. Or impress that special someone with some gourmet items..

Great place to grab your wine and drinks. Not overpriced, which is great. I always buy Sprecher Root Beer here. Cheaper than jewel. Good service. I get wine here too.

The folks at Schaefer (mainly Brian) provided excellent planning service for my daughter's wedding and provided the liquor package at a very reasonable cost.

Looks like a small store from the outside, but I doubt you will be unable to find the wine (or something comparable) . The staff is extremely knowledgeable and super friendly and helpful. The BIG PLUS is the deli dept. Great assortment of cheeses, pates, crackers etc. It can be your one-stop.

Schaefer's has a long history of providing excellent wines from a wide variety of countries and regions that will satisfy the budgets and palates of just about every one. (However, no Ripple or MD 20-20 is available).The staff is knowledgeable and well able to answer esoteric questions as well as help the newest wine purchaser.
