As you may know, the Pennsylvania State Legislature passed and the governor signed legislation that will permit restaurants and Grocery stores with an “R” license the ability to sell four bottles of Wine to go!
Soon you will have the ability to purchase Shafer, Duckhorn and other sought after products that were previously unavailable to you!
We applied for a license and paid our $2,000 fee to sell our extensive inventory of wines for home consumption! Most of our wine selections are “Special Order Wines” purchased from vendors that will never be available in PLCB stores.
We expect to be granted that license and will be selling wine to go within the next few weeks! We will let you know when you can do your home wine shopping at The Carlton!
With over 800 selections – many of which have been cellar aged, we will be the best Wine Store in downtown Pittsburgh!
Hey Springsteen fans! As you know, we’re normally closed on Sundays, but not when BRUCE is in town! We’re opening up our doors just for you on Sunday, September 11.

Make your reservations NOW – we anticipate a full house of rocking E Street Band fans!
