Don't expect jug wines at this sophisticated Glen Ellyn wine shop. Do expect helpful friendly staff, more than 6,800 bottles of wine and a trim selection of microbrews from all over. Resident house cats, Ernest and Julio, roam about the new-vintage space, which has exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and prairie-style counter tops. Nothing stands higher than waist level, which makes for an inviting, browseable atmosphere. The shop is decorated with an old piano, copper hanging lamps, and even an antique telephone booth. The wine collection has a strong California influence and there is also an emphasis on Burgundys. It includes ports, other dessert wines and sparkling varieties. For the wine enthusiast: Take advantage of seminars on how to tackle a restaurant wine list, in addition to tastings hosted along with partner Cab's Wine Bar Bistro next door.
