The secret is out about Wine Thieves in Lafayette, California. Just 15 miles from SF in the East Bay.
Stop by on Fridays from 5:30 - 7:00 pm for the weekly wine tastings and did I mention its Free!
A different distributor or winery brings in around 5 wines weekly for tastings. See schedule at www.winethieves.com Become one of the regulars and you'll be invited to dinner to the casual Bo's barbecue or more upscale Postino. Both worth the trip!
Owners Jim, Bennett and Rod will greet you with a smile and are very knowledgeable about wine. The best aspect about Wine Thieves is the value. They can turn you on to a $10-$15 wines that are a lot better then some I've paid 3-4x that much!
Look for the unbelievable deals - currently Sequoia Grove - Reserve Cab under $20 and the steal in the store is the '99 Belvedere Sonoma County Cabernet - $14.99. They also had Veramonte Primus - very spicy finish perfect with the hot sauce across the street at Bo's.
