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.

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.

Bordeaux Tastings Saturday at All K&L Locations

Whatever your plans are for the weekend, make sure you set aside enough time to attend the Bordeaux tasting at the K&L store nearest you. Our Bordeaux team has been working diligently to put together a list of wines to taste that will appeal to Bordeaux afficiandoes, and be a great jumping off point to those looking to explore the region. And, because we're between vintages, you'll have the opportunity to taste wines from as far back as the 1962 vintage (if you're in Redwood City). Aged Bordeaux is where it's at, so if you've never gotten the chance to taste something other than the current release, this is a tasting series you won't want to miss. For more information on K&L in-store tasting and special events, visit our Local Events page or call your local store.
