“Wine has been part of civilized life for some seven thousand years. It is the only beverage that feeds the body, soul and spirit of man/women and at the same time stimulates the mind” – Robert Mondavi

Shannon grew up working in her parent’s family liquor store in Buffalo, Gates Circle Wine & Liquor. Her love of wine inspired her to open E-Ville Spirits & Wine in 2003. Shannon has traveled extensively around the world, visiting major wine growing regions and wineries, bringing back to Ellicottville some of the most interesting products these trips revealed. When you stop in, be sure to ask for Shannon and say hi!
