"As a wine lover’s wine store, Charles Fine Wine has been committed for almost 30 years to exciting the palates of its customers," said Charles Bissell, founder and one of the owners of Charles Fine Wine. "We pride ourselves on our curated selection of exceptionally valued wines and our responsiveness to our customers’ tastes, and we are pleased to be selling to equally dedicated people in Tony and Cheryl."

Mr. Bissell added: "It was a great experience working with Irina at Comer Business Brokers. She ensured an efficient and professional experience all around, and took much of the stress out of selling my business."
