Fresh: Grand Change

There’s a new wine shop in Lake Forest: Grand Cru Wine Merchants.

Recently relocated from Arlington Heights, Grand Cru Merchants offers affordable boutique wine, spirits, and beer from around the world. Proprietor Craig Brautigam is a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, and has worked at the Chicago restaurants Le Francais and Trio. “Lake Forest is the kind of community that thrives with independent businesses, and we love to work with that kind of clientele,” Brautigam says.
