Here’s a fun one. If you haven’t noticed, my woefully bland neighborhood got a much-needed wine addition earlier this month. Vintage Berkeley opened its second Berkeley location at the corner of College and Ashby in Elmwood, injecting much needed spirit(s) into that block. They’re in the old hardware store location.
These guys, who also own Solano Cellars in Albany, specialize in small production value wines (that’s under $25) from around the world. Is there any other kind of wine? Make sure to stop by for their afternoon or evening tastings. I figure if we can’t get a sophisticated bar in the hood, this is the next best thing.
According to a press release, co-owner Peter Eastlake had this to say about opening up a third store in a dire economy: “Wine prices are undergoing an overdue correction, and consumers will benefit from the process.”
Cheers to that.
