Ray & Sandi got started when they purchased a small, existing wine store in 1999 in Penn Yan, NY. In just a few years they doubled the business and moved the store to a significantly larger space where they existed for another 10 years. Five years ago they purchased a derelict warehouse on Water Street, originally the Lake Keuka Fruit Sales Co. that was built in 1886. After careful renovation and restoration, they moved their store into this unique location.

Built in 1886 on the site of a tannery owned by John Conklin & Sons, our beautiful brick warehouse was conveniently located for import/export via the adjacent railway and steamboats and remained the Lake Keuka Fruit Sales Co. until being sold off to a number of owners in 1928.
