I am aware of the other threads one wine shops/stores such as http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/678519 and everything it links, but I am looking for specifics.
My husband and I recently relocated to Chula Vista from Santa Barbara, where we used to shop Costco or Trader Joe's for our affordable local wines, and I've been starved for good California/Central Coast wines! Even the Napa/Sonoma selection here seems to be pretty limited to the big corporate wineries with steep price tags, and BevMo is pricey on what few SB/SRH/SMV/Paso wines they do have.
I have read about SD Wine Co, KnB, Holiday Wine Cellar, etc., but I'm not really ready to drive all over San Diego for potential disappointment (we stopped in The Wine Bank briefly, and they claimed to be "the best," but for all their selection, I was definitely let down).
Specifically I am looking for:
Jaffurs, Beckmen, Bridlewood, Carr, Foxen, Summerland, Stolpman, Tantara, Roblar, Addamo, Au Bon Climat, Denner, Adelaida, Booker, L'Aventure, Linne Calodo, Caliza, Tablas Creek
As you may be able to tell, I enjoy the wineries that specialize in Rhone varietals. Any insight as to where I might find these would be much appreciated! And I do mean more than the occasional SB Winery Pinot or Bridlewood Syrah.
Thanks so much!
