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

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • Mr.E - 36 attendees, 4 servers, 3 cooking = 42 total people here in my backyard and garage (We empty it, clean it up, put Wine Spectator & Enthusiast mags - I was surprised that I had enough red wine glasses, thought I was going to have to dip into my AP's.There was no clear cut food entree serving that was heads above the other two.  People fig...

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • Saturday (16 July) started off with me trying to finish the assembly of a multi-piece IKEA cabinet structure that would sit below our new 75" Sony XBR75X940D television.  The old 'coffee table' wasn't going to cut it anymore, but I was going to still use my stereo system for a semi-decent audio experience.  Once I had the cabinets fully assemble...

  • EM, you have made an excellent posting of your Hollywood Bowl experience and if I remember correctly, the last time I was there must have been in the 1970's too.  I haven't posted lately because we've been so busy with the painters in our house since 05 July (they finished up on 13 July); we had three rooms painted - the foyer, the family room a...

  • MJ - We belong to the Repris wine club, not the mailing list.  We belong to eight wine clubs currently, and it gets a little expensive in the spring and fall when they start shipping.  If you want more details about their wine club, send me a private message.Today was Cat Tuesday and I am worn out at this point.  We've also had painters in our h...

  • Since dailies aren't usually wines that I store long term--good early drinkers like Barbera, Dolcetto, simpler Chiantis, roses, and whites--they don't actually take much storage space, and rarely in the basement.  They aren't going to go bad if the house gets up to 78-80 for a couple days (which is how long it takes to break a "heat wave" with t...

  • Not as exciting this weekend, at least not this Saturday.  We spent the whole afternoon with the grandkids, watching them at our son's house while Sandra worked on weeding and redoing their front yard of a small 2-bedroom townhome.  Small yes, but at least they didn't pay rent for numerous years before buying a home, so it works for now.  They'v...

  • Wine dinner at our house with our neighbors Rick & Debbie last night.  These are the folks that got us into Duckhorn wines, so you know we were drinking the good stuff.  It started at 6 PM and I think we wrapped it up around 11 PM after 4.5 bottles of wine between the four of us.  Sandra stayed up to watch SNL but I headed to bed!  We started of...
