20% off all retail wines Saturday at The Kitchen and Selland's

Now here's some good news for those who have a wine lover on their holiday shopping list. The Kitchen and its sister restaurant, Selland's Market Cafe, are offering 20% off all retail wines on Saturday. Though The Kitchen (2225 Hurley Way, Sacramento) sells retail bottles by appointment, tomorrow its doors will be wide open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the 20% off wine sale. Now this is a wine list that runs especially deep, offering such coveted California "cult" wines as Screaming Eagle, Bond, Harlan and Kongsgaard. But you don't need to spend hundreds of dollars to score a special bottle. Look for wines from Sequoia Grove, Audelssa and Bridesmaid to nab some great gift bottles in the $50-$70 range.

Over at Selland's (5340 H St., Sacramento), some special wines can be had for about the price of a pizza. Long before I started writing about food, this was always one of my go-to shops for wine, a place where I could ogle at a bottle of Shafer Hillside Select or Blankiet on the shelves but still opt for a tasteful budget Bordeaux or Michele Chiarlo Nivole Moscato d'Asti. Look for a variety of local producers and moderately priced sparkling wines as well. The 20% off sale runs from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.

And just for the record, I've been more nice than naughty this year, so I'll add a bottle of 1997 Dalla Valle to my holiday wish list 8)
