It’s a bummer to learn many restaurants can’t afford to pick up the wine they’ve ordered after it arrives at Sigel’s in Addison. In many cases (HAH!) a restaurant may not pick up the order because they’ve  changed their list or their wine-by-the glass selections. No matter the reason, Sigel’s has a huge inventory they […]
