Review: Vino 100

Part of a nation-wide chain, Vino 100 offers 100 wines for $25 or less, as well as wine paraphernalia including glasses, gadgets and gifts. Each Saturday from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. the store features  “Sippin’ Saturdays” which lets guests sample themed wines.Chase Vineyard Wines in Napa Valley Owner Natalie Buster has had a passion for wine for 25 years before opening her store. “We are about searching out the perfect wine for our customers,” she says. “We try to provide a non-pretentious atmosphere in a beautiful setting.” To facilitate the wine interaction, Vino 100 offers a variety of other tasting opportunities that are updated on the calendar on their website. Their most popular annual event occurs in July when they follow the 21-stops on the route of the Tour de France to showcase wines from the various regions in France. “We do a lot of cross marketing,” says Buster of their teaming with local artists, restaurants and even a doggy bakery. “We want this to be a very, very easy experience.”

A number of local restaurants have partnered with Vino 100, waiving their corkage fee for wine brought in from Vino 100.

    Wish I had this sort of thing in Korea, I miss wine tastings at wine bars. Always find them very good for discovering new wines, very sophisticated on a low budget. Is quite neat that they let you bring in your own wine to the restaurant to encourage people to eat out without killing their budget on drinks.
