Wine Konnection closing Saturday

The wine scene in El Dorado Hills just took a dip, as Wine Konnection will close for good following service on Saturday night. In an e-mail, the owners called the closure "another casualty to the recession despite valiant efforts the past 9 months to ignite business."

Wine Konnection (4364 Town Center Blvd., El Dorado Hills) emphasized California's wineries, with a cellar that boasted bottles of Ridge Monte Bello from the early 1990s at $300 each and such labels as Beringer Private Reserve and BV Georges de Latour from the vaunted 1997 vintage. Wine Konnection's champagne line-up also included some stars, inlcuding a 1996 Krug "Clos du Mesnil" for a cool $1,399. Wines by the glass ranged from $6.75 to $20, and its food program garnered a favorable review by the Bee's Blair Anthony Robertson.

For the final day of business, look for wine deals and closeout specials. Information: (916) 941-1555.
