biodynamic, and thoughtfully farmed wines in Illinois.
Among the producers we import and distribute are , we believe, some of the world’s most talented winemakers.
We are wine lovers selling wine we love to drink.

Each member of our team evolved into their role at Candid and in the wine industry after falling in love with wine while doing some other, rather amazing things.
As you come to know the Candid team, you will see that we are wine lovers who have made very specific choices to sell wine we love to drink.
Scott Kerrigan, Connor O’Rourke, and Damien Casten are partners in the business. Between them they ensure that we have wine to sell, that said wine is in stock, delivered, and then paid for.
We are nothing without the producers we represent. We encourage you to click on “Candid Wines: Who” on the side of this page, or visit our Producers page to read more about the people who matter most at Candid.
Finally, we are indebted to the work of a wonderful group of young professionals who have interned with us here in Chicago from Universities in South Korea, Germany, and the Netherlands.
We’ve connected with our interns thanks to Intrax, a wonderful agency that places students with American companies. They have brought a combination of energy, professionalism and curiosity to our office and our operation for which we are constantly grateful.
