FAQ

What’s the BU Club?

A Club for wine discovery and a gosh darn good time. Check it.

Do you deliver?

Absolutely. We try to hand deliver as much as possible, though shipping in-state is also an option. Fee depends on the destination!

Can you ship out of state?

America’s shipping laws for alcohol retailers are, in a word, silly. So yes and no – depends on the state. Contact us and we can tell you for sure.

Are you open seven days a week?

Oh yeah. We’re only closed four days per year, so chances are today isn’t one of them. Check our Google listing for the most accurate hours!

Do you do events?

Abso-freaking-lutely. We organize in-shop (and out-of-shop) shenanigans every week. Follow us on social or sign up for our newsletter to get the most up-to-date schedule/announcements.

What’s with the art wall?

We love art (in its many forms). Which is why we created a wall in the shop to highlight a different artist each month. If you are one or know one and want (them) to be featured, contact us!

Do you do free public tastings?

“First Fridays!” 5:30-7pm(ish) on the first Friday of every month. We launch the new artist, open fun bottles to taste, and sometimes have live music! Dancing encouraged regardless.

Do you sell gift cards?

Totally. Hard copy AND digital. Because we know last-minute gifts are a thing.

Do you have “natural wines” and/or orange wines?

For sure. Both categories are part of our rotating inventory, so ask us what’s new!

Do you carry [insert specific request here]/Can you get [insert specific request here]?

We’re a wee shop so it’s impossible to carry everything at all times. We want to keep you happy though, because that’s literally our job. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome and special orders are totally doable. Just contact us or come on in to chat!

Do you love puns?

Punreasonably so.

What’s the craziest thing that’s happened recently?

Being voted “2022 Best Wine Shop” in Chicago Reader and listed on Wine Enthusiast’s Best Wine Shops of 2023.” Truly insane. We have no words.

What’s your favorite type of wine/pairing right now?

Island wine and winter jackets.

What are you looking forward to?

Operation: Wine Bar.
