Crestwood Fine Wine & Spirits opened its doors in 1994 making it one of the first privately owned wine stores in the city. Twenty years later it remains one of the premier destinations for exclusive wines and fine spirits. Staff knowledge and customer service has always been a cornerstone of the business. Wine selection is not just a business at Crestwood but takes on its own cultural importance for our staff as well as our customers. We are constantly tasting and evaluating product and have become quite stringent with our selections.
Narinder and Sonia Puri are the owners of Crestwood. French cuisine might be their favorite but they also share a passion for Italian wines and plan on travelling to Italy to explore in more depth the country’s rich cuisine and cultural heritage. Narinder himself is a WSET Level 2 graduate.
Anatol Parkhomenka joined the Crestwood in November 2015. Certified by both WSET and the CMS, he is passionate about elegant, age-worthy wines, signature regional grapes and rare varietals. Two permanent residents in his cellar would always be Riesling and Syrah. Ask Anatol for unusual and tasty wine and food pairing ideas, hidden value gems or a perfect gift selection.
Kenny Shank joined the Crestwood team in Feburary 2016. His political science and philosophy degree along with witty personality often result in fun conversations with our guests. Kenny brings in hands-on winery experience from such well-known Canadian wineries as Tawse and Road 13. His belief is that wine has to reflect its terroir with precision, grace and honesty. Kenny’s goal is to become an Advanced Sommelier with the CMS before he turns 30.
The Crestwood staff is always happy to assist you in whatever manner possible so please don’t hesitate to contact us. Better still, pop by the store and pay us a visit in person.
Our store can facilitate up to 15-20 people for such events. It’s a fantastic way to explore new wines and increase your knowledge in general. It’s also informal and fun so stay posted to our website for future events.
Crestwood has always been the first stop for sourcing that unique or rare gift idea. Whether it’s a forty year old Port or a twenty-five year old Scotch Whisky, we will always have something that fits into your needs. Perhaps you’re looking for a unique selection of wines for the oenophile in your family. We can package that gift in unique hand-crafted wooden crates or gift boxes. If you’re not sure what that special person would be most satisfied in receiving, we always have gift cards.
Our selection is constantly growing and evolving as the needs of our market changes. Currently there is a remarkable revival in classic cocktails and spirits and we are striving to meet that demand by sourcing as many exciting new products as possible. Gin, Bourbon, Amaro, specialty liqueurs, just to name a few spirits which have recently seen an increase in consumer demand and interest. And of course Craft Beer! Our selection may not be the largest but we are constantly rotating the inventory as the seasons change, sourcing the best local and international brewers possible.
