Spirited Gourmet in Winchester is Sold

The Spirited Gourmet wine store in Winchester is being sold by the current owners, Elena and Chris Benoit. They will continue to own and operate the Belmont location of The Spirited Gourmet.

The store is being sold to Ray and Lori Schaefer, longtime customers, who will rename the store Pairings, Exploring Food and Wine. They will continue to conduct weekly wine but will add samples of food with the wines. Recipes for the food and some of the ingredients will be available at the tasting.

Prior to their takeover, Chris and Elena will offer a 15% discount on all of their wines, including single bottle purchases, from Saturday, March 6th, through March 13th.

I wish Chris and Elena much luck in their future endeavors, as well as luck to Ray and Lori their new wine and food store.
