Since several of us are from the Western Suburbs, I thought I would ask this question again, even though it was recently asked about the Chicago area. For me, I work literally all the time, and I am not able to receive packages where I am, so mail-order is probably out.
I have been cruising all the local stores that sell wine and have made some good purchases at Binnys, Sams Club, Sav-Way and even Trader Joes. However, I am running out of stores to hunt at. I recently joined the wine club at DiCarlos out on Kingery Hwy, but haven't had much time to look around there.
Anyone in my area want to share some of the good stores to buy some wines? I don't think I can make it down to Sams in Chicago that often so limiting it to the Western Suburbs, are there any good places I am missing out on? I have checked Costco in Naperville because everyone raves about their prices and selection and I didn't find anything I would remotely be interested in except maybe some 2001 Hanna Cab. Are there some Costcos around that have a better wine selection?
I am really trying to play catch-up on some 2000 Bordeaux and I see that Binnys has marked even the lower priced ones up about $10 a bottle. I have been shopping the sales as much as possible, but am finding pickings slim as of late. Plus I just like checking out new places with a good wine selection on lunch.
