I think you’ll like the sound of this: for the month of May, Grand Café is offering half off all bottles of wine. Yup, even sparkling. The only limitation is a cap of two bottles of wine per table. Have fun! And don’t miss chef Alicia Jenish’s asparagus salad with goat cheese vinaigrette—it’s deeeelicious.

Ristobar is offering a special wine list on Tuesdays that they’re calling 15/30, which means the restaurant is offering 15 select wines at $30 per bottle. Last week’s list included selections like 2009 Castello di Luzzano, “Carlino” Oltrepó Pavese Bonarda; 2010 Cantine di Dolianova, Vermentino di Sardegna; 2006 Malvira, Langhe Nebbiolo; and 2008 Poliziano, Rosso di Montepulciano.

The next time you head to MICHAEL MINA for dinner (or a drink at the bar), take a look at sommelier Josiah Baldivino’s new monthly wine feature, Hometown Heroes, which will spotlight notable wineries that have done something exceptional to define the wine industry in California. You’ll be able to access highly sought-after old and rare vintages from the cellars of wineries like Copain Wines in May, Corison Winery in June, and Peay Vineyards in July. There will be a white and red wine-by-the-glass offering from each winery, along with a vertical series of coveted library wines.
