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

  • Well, I finished the basement bathroom with another four hours of work this morning.  Tomorrow I will clean the tile floor with the grout cleaner, but that should only take about 2 hours as it's a small floor.  I'm glad I got a painting project completed before another month had slipped by.  I've been lazy this year when it comes to getting some...

  • Last night Sandra made chicken soup with the chicken and bones left over from cooking a whole chicken on Sunday.  I had me a big bowl and it was most excellent.  I forgot to take a picture of it though.  Anyway, I did open a white wine to drink with the meal, which was actually started on Sunday when we ate most of the chicken.  This Medlock Ame...

  • You can’t deny screw caps prevent cork taint, but has the emerging closure tainted tradition?  Washington State University’s (WSU) Viticulture and Enology program seems to think not, according to an article published yesterday in The Seattle Times. “They don’t stand on snobbishness when it comes to making wine at Washington State University,” As...

  • I have been feeling guilty of not doing much around the house lately - oh I'm not talking about having things done by others, but having me actually do the work.  Sure I cut the lawn each week and little things like that, but there are many rooms yet to paint in this house.  It's just hard to get started with painting because I really don't like...

  • Sandrone is modernist, so it's interesting to see what's happening to those.  The modernists probably made the wines more drinkable young by taming the tannins with oak, but at a cost of burying some of what makes Nebbiolo unique. (Here I am sounding like some cocksure expert--I'm not, but this is certainly how many, including Oz Clarke, saw it,... Read More

  • I think I know a decent enough about wine. But this year, not from any specific vintage or anything, but various wines, I have been getting "bad wine" I think so. Like tonight. ANd the last time. Different wines, different stores. And this has happened I guess two or three other times this year. The first couple of times I took the stuff back, b... Read More

  • WB has a thread on this, why not us?Cracked my first one over the weekend, a Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola. While Pelissero has a couple more highly esteemed Barbaresco (Tulin, of which I have a few, and Venotu, of which I hope to get some), I enjoyed this wine, and picked the right time to open it as it was accessible enough for the casu...

  • Today just keeps getting better and better.  It's 65 F outside right now and a beautiful day out here in Northern Virginia.  So I got home with the Medlock Ames shipment and had it all taken downstairs to our basement wine cellar when the phone rings and it's UPS - there was another package for me.  What?  I had the full case from this shipment,...
