What We're Drinking

 

 

 

In December, we drink Champagne at closing at K&L- and we prefer to drink it out of magnum when possible. The highlight this year was the Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (1.5L) magnum ($74.99) that we had on Christmas eve. This single vineyard beauty comes from the Gouttes d’Or, a very steep east facing parcel in the little village of Brouillet. It was creamy, delicate and perfectly refreshing! We all say to cheers to you, and hope your holiday is filled with fun and friends!

Friday Night Tastings at K&L Redwood City

Above: Mike Dunn pours a vertical of Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon to K&L customers in the Redwood City tasting bar.

Folks in the know keep their calendars open every Friday from 5-6:30 p.m. when K&L Redwood City opens its tasting bar to the public. These tastings are fun, casual events geared towards introducing customers to our favorite winemakers and importers from around the world.  

The cost to taste? Typically $10 or less.

The opportunity to hear Randall Graham (of Bonny Doon fame) recite poetry from his Vinthology "Been Doon So Long" while sipping on biodynamic Albariño, to fall in love with Nebbiolo all over again thanks to the wit, charm (and excellent Italian wine imports) of Oliver McCrum, to taste why it's worth waiting for that Dunn Cab to come around, or to develop a new appreciation for Chilean Carmenere with the master Mauro Von Siebenthal himself?

Priceless.
