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

  • "So not much of a Burgundy/ Swiss connection Dave?"On one level certainly a big connection; as BLM and I've mentioned Burgundy is literally just down the hill a couple of hours. Same grapes (pinot noir, gamay, chardonnay, though many others also grown in Switzerland), and lots of interaction between the populations. And Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) i... Read More

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

  • 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...
