Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: Bodegas Riojanas in the House! Special Tasting Thursday 4/11

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Greetings all,

BODEGAS RIOJANAS will be in the house here in Redwood City next Thursday 4/11 from 5pm-6:30pm. You will definitely want to join us as we will have some tasty Spanish themed snacks and both Sara (export dept) and Pablo (winemaker) here to explain what distinguishes this traditional, historic Rioja bodega from many others. As you probably know, these are some of our favorite Riojas on the shelf and it's always a pleasure to taste through them, particularly when we have a knowledgeable winemaker to walk us through the line-up. Just $5 to taste and snack!

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: Spanish Tastings in all three stores Saturday January 12th!

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Greetings and Happy New Year!

Let's get down to brass tacks and get you up to speed on the latest and greatest.

-Spanish tasting in all stores Saturday January 12th!

As always, we will be featuring many new faces and likely at least one older, old school Rioja to enjoy (BTW, this is not the hip-hop older than 5 years definition of old school, I mean older than 20 years). Here is our link with times for each store:

-Three picks under $10

I know I am biased. However, Spain continues to produce the best value wine under $10. My colleagues here and elsewhere in the wine business would likely agree with that. Here are three that will not break the bank, and will satisfy your need to replenish your "drink now" stocks of wine after the busy holiday season.

 

Bodegas Puelles Blanco Rioja - $9.99

2011 Bodegas Riojanas Canchales Joven Rioja - $9.99

http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1108242

 

2009 Riotajo Tempranillo Garnacha Vinos de Madrid - $9.99

http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1092054

 

-Next week...

Rare, Galician wines from the Monterei D.O.

 

Saludos, y salud,

Joe

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News 12/1/2011: Bodegas Riojanas tasting this Friday 12/2!

By Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish and Portuguese Wine Buyer

Hey everyone,

This week we are focused on one thing and one thing only: the special Bodegas Riojanas tasting with Luis Moya of Vinos Unico this Friday at 5pm in our Redwood City store.  In addition to having some delicious tapas prepared courtesy of Chef Raquel Hermosilla of Spain at Home Catering, we will be featuring a full line-up of Bodegas Riojanas wines, including the '78 Viña Albina and legendary '64 Monte Real Gran Reservas.  Those two bottles alone, if they were for sale (they're not, we're pouring them just for fun and educational purposes) would likely go for $200 each. 

The price of the tasting is only $8. 

Here is the line-up: 

2004 Bodegas Riojanas Viña Albina Reserva Rioja - $19.99

2001 Bodegas Riojanas Monte Real Gran Reserva Rioja - $34.99

1998 Bodegas Riojanas Monte Real Gran Reserva Rioja - $39.99

1998 Bodegas Riojanas Viña Albina Gran Reserva Rioja - $39.99

1978 Bodegas Riojanas Viña Albina Gran Reserva Rioja (not for sale)

1964 Bodegas Riojanas Monte Real Gran Reserva Rioja (not for sale)

I look forward to seeing you all there and enjoying some terrific, traditional Riojas with you.

Joe
