What We're Drinking


Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

It's Paso Robles Wine Week!


This week, K&L San Francisco and K&L Redwood City are excited to be hosting two of the Paso Robles Wine Alliance's Summer in the City tastings leading up to the Grand Tasting Tour: SF taking place this Sunday in the Golden Gate Club of  San Francisco's Presidio. 

K&L will be showcasing select wines from our favorite producers, including Tablas Creek, Justin, L'Aventure, Ancient Peaks, and Vina Robles this Thursday 7/14 in San Francsico and Friday 7/15 in Redwood City. You will be able to taste in a more intimate setting and purchase your favorite bottles at K&L's best prices while preparing for the Grand Tasting. (Sounds like a smart plan to us.)

We will also be featuring Paso producers all week on Uncorked: Behind the Wine, sharing winemaker Q&As and other fun facts and stories from the folks, well, behind the wine.  Check back tomorrow for our first profile, featuring Tablas Creek and a Q&A with Jason Haas.

You can visit our Facebook page for updates on all the action, and K&L Local Events for a list of all upcoming K&L events and tastings.
