For over 40 years, House of Bacchus Wine & Spirits has delivered superior Service, Selection, and Quality. Foundation In the late 1960s, Gerry Clifford took over older brother Tom’s liquor store in Pittsford, NY, while Tom was away serving his country. Gerry enjoyed the business so much that in 1968 he opened a store of his own. A store with a simple focus: Its customers. Gerry had learned the importance of customer care at a young age from his father in the saloon & restaurant business. And he carried that dedication to customers with him to House of Bacchus. It continues today: Walk into House of Bacchus and you’re likely to get a chance to speak with Gerry himself, still in the store daily, still very hands-on in the operation. If he’s not there, he might be out on a delivery – which he continues to make on weekdays and weekends – or on one of his many wine buying trips, ensuring that House of Bacchus customers get the best wine selection and value possible.

  • The discussion about "natural wine" Vs "industrial wine" is really hot in Italy. After hundred of posts, articles and discussion i can resume my opinion: 1) i like good wines, 2) i don't like bad wines, i can just add i particulary love territorial good wines.Too much simple?There's some hot discussion around and not for all the issue is so simp...

  •  OK, add together Parker's influence over the past decade or two, Chinese money over the past few years, and a little bit of marketing acumen by LVMH, the Bordelaise and even the odd Southern Californian. What results? Hopefully a bubble in prices that can't continue indefinitely, after an event like the likely Chinese bubble burst within a coup... Read More

  • What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar?  Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More

  • A thread on another category inspired me to look this one up and write it out, because it's from Ben Franklin.  Who was pretty smart, and woulda been a Snoother had he lived to these days of the internet.  Well before Mr. T.

  • I'm looking at some cellar upgrades and want some input on a couple of things.  My general understanding is that ideal conditions are 55 degrees F and humidity of 60-65%.1.  Do certain wines benefit from having a different storage temperature?  If so, which ones and what is considered ideal?2.  How low can the humidity get before impacting the c...
