Sip On This
Imagine my surprise when I show up to Book Soup's Book Swap and Kogi Truck fest this weekend only to find that they were giving out free wine from Bear Flag Wines. Tacos, books and FREE wine? This little atheist went to heaven. But on top of it being free, the wine was good. I mean really, really good. Now listen, take it from the kid of a winemaker--this stuff is the real deal. As a brand new brainchild of a couple of winemaking ladies from Modesto, Bear Flag red and white blends are interesting, unpretentious and delicious with Korean tacos (and probably anything). And the bottles? Fantastic. Eduardo Bertone, an Argentinean graphic artist who has become world known, has teamed up with Beth and Hillary to produce a label that you'll probably keep long after you've had the last drop of vino. If you're ready for a bottle, check out Bear Flag Wines or call 1-866-984-BEAR.
