A Tour of a Fine Wine Store – Berkeley Wine Company

September 7, 2010 at 8:16 AM Leave a comment

Hey Notable Wine-ers!!!  I hope you are ready for this… I walked into the Berkeley Wine Co. with my FlipCam and this is what I came out with…

Originally, I was just going to give you a basic idea of a store wine tasting and give you a little tour of the store.   However, Dave was nice enough to give us a sneak peak into their “Finest Wine” section where they store some very rare, expensive wines, and he even gave us a little history on them, too bad we didn’t try one of those :-)!  Hope you learned a little something… Needless to say, I got a little lost in there and pretty much made that the focus of the show… that’s okay, the values are everywhere, and I’ll keep finding them for you!

The Graves we tasted was very high in acidity, dry, Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc blend, with deceptively fruit forward aromas of peach, apple, but very crisp, dry refreshing flavors.  Surprisingly, it tasted pretty young given the 2001 vintage!

The Barbera d’Asti we tasted was easy drinking, lighter style, low tannin, dry red fruit flavors (Strawberry), and typical of Italian reds, it had a bit of acidity on the palate as well.

Both wines were on sale for around $14.
