What We're Drinking



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!

Take the K&L Blind Tasting Challenge This Weekend! 

Put your Palate to the Test!

Join us for our first-ever 2-day Blind Tasting Challenge, hosted by the expert staff at K&L in Redwood City. The Challenge includes the Blind Chardonnay Tasting on Friday 10/12 (5pm-6:30pm) and the Blind Cabernet Tasting on Saturday 10/13 (1pm-4pm). Attend both tastings and vote on your favorites! The lineups will be revealed after the tasting, and the most popular duo of Chardonnay and Cabernet will be featured the following week on Uncorked.

This is a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of these two important varietals and their potential for incredible diversity in expression based on factors of terroir, climate, viticulture, and winemaking technique as you sharpen your blind tasting skills and learn from the pros. If you think you know Chard and Cab, think again...

All palates welcome! The main goal is to learn, taste, and have fun, and anyone is welcome to attend and share in these tastings, voting is optional. No RSVP required. Come on down!

K&L Redwood City Blind Chardonnay Tasting Friday October 12th (5pm-6:30pm) | $10  Details

K&L Redwood City Blind Cabernet Tasting Saturday October 13th (1pm-4pm) | $20  Details

May the best wine win!
