IT ALL STARTED AROUND THE DINNER TABLE
Stew Leonard’s WINES began when Stew Leonard, Jr., and his two sisters, Jill and Beth, and brother, Tom, were sitting at the dinner table. They realized the only item on the table that their store did not sell was the wine. The meal was fantastic, but the wine was just ok. Stew said to his sisters, “We can do better. Don’t you agree?”
Stew and his family decided to take their decades of retail experience in the food business and apply it to wine. They agreed that any store, which opened under the “Stew Leonard’s” trademark, would offer customers a friendly, well-trained staff and a clean, organized store. We want any customer in a Stew Leonard’s store to feel comfortable asking questions about wine and to enjoy it as much as we do. After studying the industry, taking multiple courses and traveling to numerous wineries, Beth L. Hollis, Stew’s sister, opened the first wine store in Yonkers, New York, in 1999.
