94 Wine & Spirits (8/2018) "This broadcasts its freshness and youth in its cherry-red color and berry scents. But don't be seduced into drinking this now: Pulled from the oldest vines in Yiannakohori, the Boutari family's estate vineyards in Naoussa, it's concentrated and firm. There's an iron filigree of tannins defending the fruit, and vivacious acidity underlining its intention to preserve the wine for many more years. Forget about this in the cellar for at least five years; then draw it out for a crown roast of pork."
91 Wine Advocate (4/30/2019) "The 2015 Ramnista is the winery's classic Xinomavro, aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak. It comes in at 13% alcohol. When last seen, it was a little tight with sharp edges-to some extent, that's the style. Let's check in. This has fleshed out nicely, seeming rounder and softer in terms of texture - but there is still lots of power hiding underneath. It pops up to the foreground pretty promptly. Overall, this is a bit more approachable, but that doesn't mean it's ready. It really needs a couple of more years to become more expressive and better balanced. In other words, continue on as originally directed. Everything looks good. Drink Date: 2021-2040."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
