Wine Bank - under new management? (San Diego)

ahavajava | Sep 1, 2006 05:52 PM

I went to the Wine Bank and the wooden crates of wine were gone. Replaced by steel gray shelving. The top floor had new shelving filled with liquor. A new man I didn't recognize was talking about "reorganizing" the store and said it would take "a couple of months". I saw the (former?) owner sitting with packed things. I nodded to the owner, who nodded back. It felt a little odd/ maybe rude to ask if there was new management.

I also noticed that my old favorite bottles of wine seemed to have gone up in price. Gone where the helpful notices about wine reviews/ratings. And the atmosphere was definately different.

My impression was that it had been sold and that I might as well go to a chain wine store now. I didn't realized how much I loved it the way that it was.
