so i stopped by despana brand foods today on northern blvd and 86 and some good news- they are now open until 4pm on saturdays. as always they had lots of samples and wine to taste. also, they ship- i sent a very nice chowhoundy bday gift to my friend in california and i only spent like 35 bucks and they threw in a box of chocolates on the house. and they are so nice and helpful. it's a great way to send someone a truly delicious gift without spending a hundred bucks.
