  • Okay, today was day one of North Berkeley Imports' warehouse sale. DMcker hipped me to it a few years back. It happens more or less every year at more or less this time.  (Last year a little later, but in June.)  The deal is you get 30% of retail if you buy a case, 40% off if you buy two cases, 50% if you buy three or more.  Last year I bought t...

  • For about $125 or so, you can probably find a Giuseppe Mascarello Monprivato from 2011.  And it'll be great right now, because that's kind of how 2011 is.  On the whole, I don't really like this exercise because I prefer to buy a wine, hold it for a while, then drink it, unless I can score something really cool that someone aged for me.  But tha...

  • Okay, should be finishing up some things here, but just got an email from Mark Matthews, so I'm inspired to follow up here. At the end of the panel, which was moderated by an acquisitions editor from UC Press and consisted of Matthews and Sheridan Warrick, who just released the second edition of his book on home winemaking, the moderator asked h...

  • Just not a good selection of imports in these parts and for good reason.'Cause your idea of "these parts" stops at Carneros, or maybe even farther north.  (I was going to lead with a snarky comment about your education in post Prop 13 schools, but I can't remember if you are older or younger than I am.) If anything, there may be too much Euro wi... Read More

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • We can't buy much because we filled up the 20 case wine storage locker while the house is under construction, but I got the invite to the North Berkeley Imports warehouse sale--on the list thanks to an alert from DMcker a few years back--and hit the sale at opening on Friday at 10 a.m.  Big burgundy importer, so you have to grab what you can.  I...

  • Now here's an auction, supported by receipts.Of course, where is Ron J (see page 19) to authenticate those Brown Derby receipts? Still, probably nothing Bill Koch will want to bid on, since he'd have no one to sue. Read More

  • In the Bay Area and in the greater LA area, the choices are pretty huge, but that doesn't mean everything is easily available--more on that below. BevMo is headquartered here, and its ancestry can be traced back to the beginnings of a wine program at CostPlus and to Safeway's launch of Liquor Barn.  Short version is that Steve Boone more or less...

  • 2013 brought new mega wine/beer/cigar stores to the Portland, Or./Vancouver Wa. area. We went from going from little wine shops with limited selections to 2 stores with over 2500 different wines each.This is nice because you can plan ahead, check your wine rack or cellar and go on line to pick your selections. Once you've determined what you wan... Read More
