The Freewheel line with a couple of English friends.

It takes a lot of beer to keep the wine business running smoothly. Here in Redwood City, we are very fortunate to have a great English style ale producer right in our backyard: Freewheel Brewing Company. The staff of K&L are fictures at our local pub, and it is a rare moment when one of us isn't there having a pint and a bite of their excellent food. We are also lucky enough to be the first place to offer their bottled beer for sale. If you have never had it, the Freewheel Brewing "FSB" Freewheel Special Bitter, California (500ml) is the benchmark in fresh, balanced, smashable ale. We will do our best to keep some in stock for you, the customer too!

Day 3 at Alimentaria!

Wow! What a day! So many great wines and lots of information today! The new wines from Arzuaga were spectacular. Everything from their Pago Florentino project to the barrel sample of 2004 Arzuaga (no classification, yet) was terrific. Cillar de Silos is making awesome wine as well. I was hugely impressed with wines from Leda, another Ribera del Duero. I can’t wait to show you one of their top value wines…travel note: Modern Spanish cuisine is stunning. So far Abak and OMM have been the most impressive places…tasting notes and menu to follow…Saludos! -Anne Pickett

Day 2 at Alimentaria!

More tastings and more wines! The fair was even more crowded today. It was great to try so many new vintages and new projects. For those of you who were huge fans of the Ercavio, expect more great things from the folks at Mas Que Vinos. Their 2004 reds and 2005 whites are terrific. Keep and eye out for some in May/June of 2006. The new wines from Izadi were also a high point today and well as the 2003 Finca Villacreces, Ribera del Duero. I tasted a few wines from Rioja and Bierzo that I can’t wait to have in the store. More info about those wines will be available as soon as I work out the logistics...Travel oddity of the day…all of the taxi drivers in Barcelona have books of maps in the city with them in the car. When they are even a bit unsure of the location, they look it up! I have never seen that in San Francisco…Saludos! -Anne Pickett

Bienvenidos a Alimentaria!

It is day 1 here in lovely Barcelona and everything is fabulous. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 40,000 people attending the fair this year and it showed. I was lucky enough to be invited to a big tasting by one of the most important wine shops of Barcelona, Viniteca Vila. For those of you who are traveling to Barcelona and you are looking for that perfect hard to find Spanish wine, I highly recommend a visit to Viniteca Vila. The tasting highlights today were the 2003 Aalto, 2003 Aalto PS and a barrel sample of the 2004 Clos Erasmus…all awesome! Complete tasting notes will be available when I return. Well, it’s off to get ready for my 10 pm dinner reservation! Saludos! Anne Pickett
