I drive by this place every day on the way to work and wondered what was inside. Doesn't look all that much from the outside, sort of a low slung building that looks like the typical liquor store around here.

Inside, the place exceeded expectations. Some good area brews (Santa Cruz Mountain, Speakeasy, Moylans) coupled with some good imports (Chimay, Duval, Belhaven) gave it a better selection than the typical liquor store. Most, but not all of their inventory was stored in refridgerators. Prices seemed to be reasonable.

As the name suggest, they have more wine than beer inside. Reasonably good wine selection and pricing for those looking for wine.

Not a great beer store, but they are few and for between in San Jose, and certainly better than the typical liquor store around here. I plan to stop there every so often.
