THE SIDEBAR: Wine Thieves



  • Fridays, 5:30pm – 7pm


  • 3401 Mt Diablo Blvd

Venture into Lafayette and you will find a gem of a wine and cheese shop. Full disclosure, my brother Rod Santos is a partner in Wine Thieves (you won’t get a discount by mentioning my name, sorry, but the prices are so good you won’t need a discount.)

On Friday nights, Wine Thieves offers wine tasting for $5 per person. This is the deal of the century, or darn close. You will get to taste at least 5 wines and 3 artisanal cheeses while browsing the store. Staff is friendly and welcoming, and no one will shame you on your wine education, or lack thereof! Wine Thieves carries an inventory that is roughly 80% below $20 per bottle, so if you enjoy good wine that won’t break your budget, you need to check them out.

Have a fun and safe Happy Hour!
