Lexington Herald-Leader (KY) - August 3, 1996

Deceased Name: NEW YORK - Sam Aaron
NEW YORK - Sam Aaron, 84, who owned one of the world's best known retail wine shops, died Wednesday.

His son, Peter H. Aaron, said his father had been suffering from spinal cancer but that respiratory failure was the cause of death.

Mr. Aaron retired in 1990 as chairman of Sherry Lehmann Inc., which owns Sherry Lehmann Wine and Spirits.

Mr. Aaron's reputation reached far beyond the store's Madison Avenue location, where he and his brother set up shop in 1934. His buying trips to Europe were major wine events as vintners and chateau owners knew his store was the key to the American market.
