Local company packages gourmet food & wine. Writer / Christy Heitger-Ewing Photographer / Jamie Sangar Not surprisingly, the idea for family-owned Tasteful Times Gourmet Food & Wine Shop was born out of an evening involving family, food and wine. “I was sitting around one night with my parents drinking wine and shooting the breeze when this idea emerged to open a neighborhood food and wine market,” says Jon Sadler. “The next morning, we looked at each other and asked, ‘Wait.
