So I love wine and ever since going to a few wine stores this summer in SF and Berkeley I have been trying to find "my" wine store. Yes, I realize I am setting the bar a little high, but I really loved the wine buying experience out there where the sales person really took the time to figure out what I liked and didnt like and what I was looking to spend (very important).
I do like Sam's Wines quite a bit. I went in and told him what I liked and what I wanted to spend and to pick out some wines for me. Pretty much all winners. But wondering if people have some secret neighborhood store that they love or has no idea what they are selling and have some great stuff at crazy low prices.
I will give my pick for St. Anthony Liquors just because they have some weird stuff in there once in a while at some great low prices. Like all the Three Thieves wine (Joel Gott's low price wine in jugs and tetrapacks, all great table wines) and some Bonny Doon stuff at great prices.
