  1. The Wine Club, near the SJ airport

    1200 Coleman Ave
    Santa Clara, CA 95050
    (408) 567-0900

    Santa Clara Costco, has a good upscale selection of wines

    1601 Coleman Avenue
    Santa Clara, California

    Haven't been, but heard good things:

    Vintage Wine Merchants
    377 Santana Row
    Suite 1135
    San Jose, CA 95128

    1. The three that I frequent most are:

      Joseph George
      1559 Meridian Ave
      San Jose, CA 95125
      (408) 448-9463

      K&L Redwood City
      3005 El Camino Real
      Redwood City, CA, 94061
      877-KLWines (877-559-4637)

      Unwined Wine Bar & Shop
      (408) 323-9463
      6946 Almaden Expwy
      San Jose, CA 95120

      JG is the best overall experience/selection. I go there for items that I don't seem to find anywhere else. However, note that their hours are not customer friendly. K&L is a bit of a trek, but worth it for one of the better International inventories. Unwined has a modest selection of premium wines in store, but I highly recommend their wine bar and wine club.
