Gates Circle Wine & Liquor traces back its beginning to the pre-prohibition era store of Faxon, Williams and Faxon, originally located in downtown Buffalo. After the repeal of prohibition, the Faxon, Williams and Faxon liquor license was transferred to a new location where the business would come to bear the name it has today. In 1939 the business was purchased by John Carscallen and Joseph Collins before coming under the ownership of John’s son, Jan Carscallen in 1979. As a family owned business, Gates Circle Wine & Liquor has been proudly offering a premium selection of fine wine and spirits to Western New York residents for over 70 years. This tradition continues under the operation of Jan Carscallen’s daughter, Lesle, and her husband, Matt Heubach.

Gates Circle Wine & Liquor strongly believes in giving back to the community that supports us, and we sponsor several local events throughout the year, including the Buffalo Zoo’s Wines in the Wild fundraiser. If you’re a regular customer or a new arrival, thank you for your continued patronage.
