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..
