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

  • While going through my grandmother's basement, we found 2 cases of wine. The first, 1978 Liebfraumilch Qualitatswein (with black pieces floating in it and an internet search that deemed it garbage even when bottled), and the second, Paul Masson Monterey County Chardonnay 1978 (Second Bottling). I've not been able to find anything out about the l... Read More

  • Oh, yeah, I drink Pamid all the time... no, really, never even heard of the grape.  Thracian wine, it's going to be huge in 2017.  Because someone will pay off the President and he'll sign an order requiring us to drink it.  And that Trump wine--honestly, you should have avoided that when the Kluges owned it, too.Okay, enough politics.  Been mea...
