Where to buy Spanish wine?

I'm loving Spanish whites (especially txakoli) during this hot weather, and I've found a few at K&L and some others at the Spanish Table in Berkeley. Anybody know where else to find some good bottles? Thanks.

  1. Linking to K&L and the Spanish Table....

    K & L Wine Merchants
    638 4th St, San Francisco, CA 94107

    Spanish Table
    1814 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley, CA 94702

    1. Nobody has a selection as broad as Spanish Table's. That's the only store where I've seen the red txakoli.

      Farmstead in Alameda has a very large Spanish selection for a store its size and some unusual bottles.

        Thanks, Robert! Another excuse to visit Alameda, because I've been wanting to go to Speisekammer, that you mentioned a while ago.

          Here's the location for Farmstead Cheeses & Wines

        2. In SF proper there is always San Francisco Wine Trading Company. They aren't the cheapest and don't have the broadest selection, but they have a very well thought out selection and the staff there is incredible.

              Wow... It seems like last time I was there they had a MUCH broader Spanish selection. Hmmm...

                  Jug Shop I'm sure can *get it*. But as typical of my experiences there, they won't *have it*. So special order it...

                2. I don't know much about Spanish wine, so can't say if the wines are 'good', but Trader Joe's alway has a selection.
