Hello, my name is Ilya.
As a customer of Frate's Wines & Liquors you may have discovered that about a year ago the store went through a change of ownership. Frate family owned and operate this store for 60+ years. After 30+ years of ownership Kathy and Jeffrey Frate are retired and I am the proud new owner of Frate’s.
It feels like everyone in Darien knows the Frate family and their store. Frate’s has established an excellent reputation for having a great selection with everyday low prices with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
I’m keeping the name the same and will strive to keep the reputation of the establishment at or above the high bar that has already been set.
Before obtaining Frate's, I worked for beverage distributor, then for 5 years I’ve been a proprietor of a similar store in in Greenwich called Bellmore Wine & Liquor. Also, have approximately 20 years of experience in the electronic service/support industry. I believe this experience will help me maintain the level of quality and service you have come to expect from the Frate family store.
