KC - Wine Shops

I am desperately trying to identify a good wine shop in the KC area that's reasonably close to the Brookside area. Right now I buy the majority of my wine from the Consentino's grocery store in Brookside, which has a good selection/prices for being a grocery store. I've been to other liquor stores in the area without much success. Here are my thoughts on the places I've been:

Berbiglia - terrible for anything other than low-quality beer
Rimann Liquor - decent, but small selection
Westport Liquor - Good beer selection, but horrible wine selection
Metcalf Liquor - decent, but small selection
Lukas Liquor - Great beer selection and probably the best overall wine selection I've seen in the area
Costco - Actually a great place for wine at great prices, but a limited selection
HyVee Liquor - Great beer selection, but very limited wine selection

What I'm trying to figure out is if my current Lukas Liquor/Consentinos/Costco combination is the best I can do when shopping for wine in this area. I am particularly interested in shops that don't focus so heavily on California wines (all the places I've mentioned are guilty of this in my mind).
