Chez Panisse wine recommendations

John Schembri | Dec 4, 200111:49 AM

Hi all. My girlfriend and uncle and I are eating at Chez Panisse this Saturday night. I'd love to hear your wine recommendations for CP's Saturday menu [here is the dinner menu link --> ]

I'm interested in recommendations for a sparkling, a white and a red. Maybe you have separate recommendations for a great wine value and for a little splurge!

We love soft, balanced wines with lots of fruit. We shy away from wines with heavy oak or wines that are so big that they overwhelm, rather than complement, the food. We usually drink Italian and Spanish wines by choice and French wines occassionally (only because we don't know much about them). We prefer some California wines from Sonoma, and the Central and Mendocino coasts, but steer away from Napa wines as we find their style to be other than what we like.

The link below is to Chez Panisse' wine list.

Here's Cheers!
