Basement Wines started out by buying and storing wine for friends and family from the basement of our house in Santa Clara. In 2001 it grew into an online business with a small warehouse a mile from the house. In 2003 we moved it to Colfax and became a wine bar and wine shop. In 2007 we added food and we're open 7 days a week. – Description from Dragac

  • I'm hoping we get to relax this coming weekend, but one of my friends (Greg) want's to come over and do some computer gaming.  He is the one that won a computer at our Memorial Day LAN party, and I still have the computer here while he makes room in his townhouse for the machine.  He is giving up his den upstairs to allow for his twins to each h...

  • RCKR-I can get that Carmenere for $6-7 in my area often. It don't get much better at that basement price point! Yesterday we had this 2014 Sean Mnior Cabernet. Nothing memorable.... Nose was muted, black fruit, not much complexity, medium body, medium finish. For less than $15, it's decent.  Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.This topic is all about value...

  • I really do not know what I have,except they are a mix of Burg and Bord. The are laying horizontal in wooden crates stacked up so access is not particularly easy. But then I planned not to touch them for a long time.The storage I believe is adequate as the basement stays cool year-round. I believe them to be good wines in an OK year but not grea... Read More

  • Hi All-Have not had a chance to get on here for a while. After my daughter was born in 98 and the wines started coming out a couple years later I started buying 98s from Bugundy and Bordeaux as I came across them. A couple days ago I opened one for the first time to celebrate her getting into the USC drama school. All of a sudden we're Trojan fo... Read More

  • Getting back to wine for a moment, last night we hosted a wine dinner with our neighbors Debbie and Rick.  They brought over two bottles, a Napa Merlot (2014 Arietta Merlot Hudson Vineyards) and an Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (2015 Twomey Pinot Noir).  We started with that Trump Blanc de Blanc that was given to us last month (I didn't like it muc...

  • I've got IKEA racking in our basement...er....wine cellar and it's worked fine for us.  No big earthquakes out here (there was a 4.X one maybe 10 years ago) and I haven't had a bottle dropped yet.  When we get new wines, I stand them upright and Sandra then puts them in the appropriate wine rack.  She generally makes room for the new ones by mov...

  • Not since my first thermoelectric wine cooler have I had a storage malfunction, until this week. I remember a few years back when EMark shared the story of his wine fridge collapse where multiple bottles were lost to breakage. Fast forward 4 years or so and I have an "Oh shit!" moment to share.I was looking for a bottle of wine to drink Monday n... Read More

  • Well, the example that comes most quickly to mind is VJB Cellars. Since I moved here, the prices of their wines have gone up steadily (roughly doubling) and I wonder if the quality of the wine has improved as much over the last ten years. During the same period, the company has spent how many millions building their hewn-stone tasting room and e... Read More
