The Chronicle has been a purveyor of fine wines for many years.  We recently added a variety of wines to better serve the demands of our customers.  While we do not have the inventory of the bigger wine shops, many of the wines we carry are made in small quantities and sell out quickly.  Our focus has been the value wines that are great for every day drinking, as well as wines for those special occasions.

The staff is committed to providing not only the quality and professionalism of an established wine store, but also the personalized service and helpfulness of your local “cozy” neighborhood wine shop.  If you have not been to the Chronicle lately, you will be surprised on your next visit with a fully stock shelves with very interesting wines, and at a great price.
