      For Italian, go to Jimmy's. http://www.pegasusnews.com/places/jimmys-food-store/

      I've seen shaoxing wine at Monticello Liquor. http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&...

        Actually almost all the larger oriental stores will have shaoxing wine. I know both the larger stores here in Plano have it.

        If I was going to make a single stop depending on where you are coming from, I would go to Central instead of Jimmey's. While Jimmey's has some additional items overall not a large enough quanitity of them to overshadow central.

          The asian markets in Arlington also carry shaoxing wine.
