The Wine Mine is a unique premium wine “warehouse” in the Temescal district of Oakland with the lowest prices anywhere in the Bay Area. It was established May of 2007 and offers a wide selection of handpicked wines from around the world - from $5 to $105. This is done in a relaxed, but informative, environment where everybody can enjoy the process of picking out wine - be it for a simple meal that evening or something more special for an important get together. We feature fun and informative tastings every Saturday afternoon for only $1 in a convenient location. The environment is intentionally low key reflecting the attitude of the store and the low prices to be found on excellent wines.

I rather overdid the buying and will have t... Read More

  • Hi folks!You probably remember me as a guy with fancy pairing choices, so here we go - a Fries Apple with White wine!A background - well, I was lazy to cook something and had a bottle of California Pinot Gris... and at some point I felt like crispy red sweet apple would be best for pairing when it's a bit fried...It's very easy to make - just dr...

  • I have been thinking for a while on the idea of facilitating the meeting up in person of those loyally frequenting this site.My preference is to make these meetings open to all members, and even varying the location of any meeting according to convenience since we live all over the world (though mostly in North America).In any case, this new thr...

  • I don't think there is a legal definition of a "blend" wine, Jack.  It is just a wine made from some combination of grape varieties.  Wine geeks use the nomenclature "Bordeaux Blend" to describe a wine made from some combination of grape varieties that are typically grown in the Bordeaux region,My guess is that very few of the domestic Cabernet ...

  • You know the wines of Tuscany, sure – but it’s such a blanket term. Drill a bit deeper and there’s a world of hidden gems to discover far beyond the ones you already know. The area around the town of Grosseto, along the Mediterranean coast in southwest Tuscany, is known as Maremma. The coastal location benefits from the region’s prized maritime ... Read More

  • So much good wine... so little time.  Our Spanish tasting elsewhere (away from here) revitalized my interest in these wines.  A couple of friends of mine from Spain (we were students in England) would, from time to time, bring a nice wine (this was about 1985 - when I went back to school for a spell).  I recall one of my French buddies not likin...
