Grand Cru Wine Merchants
A small neighborhood shop whose proprietor constantly tastes and hand-selects wines from around the world, Grand Cru specializes in special, boutique wineries. We pride ourselves in finding wines from new and upcoming regions, as well as the classics. We stock wine at all price points: Whether you're looking for that 10-dollar bottle for a casual Tuesday-night dinner, or a bottle for a special birthday or anniversary, you'll find it at Grand Cru. Browse our selection online and call us when you're looking for a specific wine. We look forward to serving you.
Spurred by a passion for wine informed by his culinary background, Craig Brautigam opened Grand Cru in November 2006. A graduate of the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, Craig has worked at Chicago restaurants Le Francais and Trio. He left the kitchen to pursue management positions in the front-of-the-house at restaurants in North Carolina and Memphis, Tennessee. But wine was calling and Craig answered when he happened into a small local shop in need of a salesperson -- The rest is history.
