-- Bacchus Wine & Spirits, a specialty full-service retail merchant of fine wines and spirits located near San Francisco Airport (SFO), announced today that it has been selected as a Top 100 Retailer for the second year in a row by Beverage Dynamics, which recognizes retailers nationwide who demonstrate innovation, excellent customer service and superior beverage alcohol industry knowledge.
Bacchus was chosen from among hundreds of entrants based on its boutique wine labels, selection of craft beer (e.g., Pliny the Elder) and exclusive whiskey selection, as well as its friendly, knowledgeable, and low-key staff. The wine and spirits shop is co-located with Pape Meat Co., a family owned business that's been around for more than 60 years. Pape's is a neighborhood magnet that has the largest dry-aged beef room in the Bay Area. The immensely popular neighborhood wine and butcher shop not only attracts chefs and customers from the greater San Francisco Bay Area, but also supplies customers from as far away as the East Coast and all over Asia.
"Bacchus Wine & Spirits and Pape Meats is the Peninsula's one-stop shop for a unique, unrivaled food and beverage experience,"
said Quinton Jay, proprietor of Bacchus Wine & Spirits. "Whether you are looking for a rare bottle of Pappy Van Winkle or a nice bottle of red to pair with Pape's in-house dry aged beef, you will find both popular and one-of-a-kind wine and spirit selections, as well as artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, and other specialty items here. Plus, if you're a fan of Pliny the Elder–now available on tap in the store–you can grab a glass as you roam the store for an even more enjoyable shopping experience!"
Bacchus educates customers with small, highly interactive virtual wine and whiskey tastings, providing detailed information about food pairings, regions, varietals, and tasting notes. The recent t (http://www.bacchusws.com/event-calendar/2020/7/26/live-zo...
)asting of five different whiskeys with Trey Zoeller, founder of Jefferson's Spirits and its well-known Jefferson's Ocean Bourbon, was a huge success and led many participants to join the Bacchus Whiskey Club (http://www.bacchusws.com/whiskey-club
, one bottle of hand-selected craft whiskey every eight weeks) for continued fun and learning. The Bacchus Wine Club is available at three different levels so there's something for everybody.
Bacchus Wine & Spirits also has a strong community presence as a donor and host of events that support local schools in the community.About Bacchus
