Of all the wine and liquors stores that are within walking distance from where we live in the West End, we always shop at Jobi Liquors. This family owned store has the one thing that I value the most in any wine shop— an owner that really knows her wines. More often than not, the owner, Dorothy Ryan has recommended wines to us that were exactly what we wanted for any occasion.
An uncorked bottle of wine is a mystery waiting to unfold. There is simply no way to know if any bottle of wine will be right for any meal, without opening the bottle and tasting the wine. This is why I value a knowledgeable wine merchant, such as Dorothy Ryan, as much as I do. Her many recommendations have saved me from wasting my money on wines that were destined to disappoint. For this and many other reasons, such as great prices, friendly service and a willingness to order wines and liquors for us whenever asked, we always shop at Jobi Liquors.
