The House of Glunz

Wine & Spirit Shop

The House Of Glunz was founded in 1888 by Louis Glunz Sr. in what is now known as the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago. His relationships with buyers, sellers and producers are valued generations later and create the foundation for their distinctive collections. Today, proprietors Barbara Glunz-Donovan and Christopher Donovan are proud that The House of Glunz stands as the oldest wine shop still owned by the same family in Chicago - and the entire United States. Now in their 129th year of serving wine, The House of Glunz has been recognized by Chicago Magazine as the Best Wine Shop in Chicago.  Offering a thoughtful selection of the finest wines and spirits, The House of Glunz accommodates all requests spanning casual “everyday wines” to the highly allocated and rare wines and spirits held in their extensive cellar.
