Wine

We take wine very seriously at D&M. Only wines that we endorse are featured in our store. The staff blind tastes over 2000 wines per year, and if they don’t like it, it doesn’t come in. We are always gratified when Robert Parker or The Wine Spectator seconds our opinion, of course, but we are never ruled by their ratings. 

You will see that our focus is on fine California wines. That’s only natural; we live in San Francisco, just forty minutes from the Napa Valley. We are privileged to know more than a few growers and producers. 

Still, we realize that great wines are made all over the world, and we do our best to bring you the best of them as well. Along with California wines, you’ll find carefully selected wines from France, Italy, Australia, Portugal, Spain, New Zealand and Germany. 

One of the things we love most about wine is the great variety to choose from. We hope you’ll feel the same. 

The wines you find listed in the following pages have all passed our rigorous evaluation process, and we think each one is worth every penny of its price tag, whether it’s five dollars or fifty dollars. So browse with confidence. We’ve already done the hard work.
