Why Buy Wine at The WineSellar
Or…Just Say No to Same Old Supermarket Wine.
1. Selection: Quality and Value over Quantity.
The WineSellar offers only the best and most complete small production, high quality domestic and international wines. We don’t buy pallets of wine produced by the high-volume wine factories typical of supermarkets and wine warehouses. At The WineSellar, every wine is personally selected, tasted and evaluated by our expert sommeliers and professional wine staff before making it to our shelves. Our wines have received the prestigious Wine Spectator Grand and Excellence awards every year since 1989. So when you choose a wine at The WineSellar you can be sure that it is a wine you can trust for its exceptional quality and great value. Whether it’s a rare, hard-to-find wine from France or an everyday favorite from Napa, look no further than The WineSellar for all your wine. The WineSellar… quality wines you just won’t find in “aisle 14.”
2. Service: Expertise, Experience and Personal Attention.
At The WineSellar, we employ among the very best-educated sommeliers and experienced wine professionals in San Diego.All are trained professionals who understand wine regions, climates, grape varieties and how they each pair with food. In fact, you might consider our staff downright “geeky.” They eat, breathe and live wine and are always up-to-date on the latest vintages, producers and emerging trends. So when you step into The WineSellar, you will be greeted by someone who understands that choosing the right wine can be a daunting task. And by someone who will not only help you choose the perfect wine today, but also remember your preferences and help you choose the right wine, time and time again. It’s like having your own, personal sommelier.
3. Tastings: Try It. Buy It.
At The WineSellar, we take the guesswork out of buying wine by making it easy for you to try many of the wines we sell before you buy. Our casual weekly and monthly tasting events offer a unique opportunity to sample a wide range of wine styles and grape varieties from the world’s most acclaimed wine regions. With our helpful expertise, you’ll broaden your knowledge and exposure to different style wines, assuring you that the wine you take home is one you’ll truly enjoy. Our wine tastings are great fun and held every Wednesday evening with monthly wine dinners in The Brasserie and special tastings scheduled throughout the year. Can’t make it to a scheduled tasting? No problem. Our casual bar, connected to the wine shop, offers more than 20 wines by the glass that are available by the bottle or case just a few steps away. Where else can you taste wines before you buy? We like to think of it as the ultimate test drive!
