“The best of its kind in Temescal, and quite possibly, all of the East bay”
(BEST OF THE BAY - EAST BAY EXPRESS)
An orgainically grown Zibibbo from Sicily (where else?). Impressively floral with a textured mouthfeel - making one's brain say "sweet" but the tongue knows better. Dry, refreshing and fun.
YOU'RE IN GOOD COMPANY
Hands down the best wine shop in Oakland, possibly even California. The owners know their wine and I honestly don’t know how they offer it at such low prices. Always a pleasure to shop there.
David and Elizabeth are very knowledgeable and never push the pricey stuff. It always seems that when I'm describing a bottle to them they know what I'm talking about. They're super fast at the counter and offer to carry a case out to the car. Try the $1 Saturday tasting (this is after the pandemic ends) and you'll be able to try a bunch of wines in a completely pressure fee situation. The price is right at The Wine Mine.
This wine shop will shock and delight with its unpretentious vibe, $1 tastings, and wide selection of under $20 wines.
