It seems like I am always the last to know, but six months into the pandemic, I just figured out that K&L Wines in Hollywood will deliver via courier for $12. K& L may be the best wine store in L.A. (only Woodland Hills Wine competes in my mind), but pre-pandemic I always hated driving to K&L from the Westside and while you could always opt for UPS delivery (or whichever service they use), in terrible weather like today I never wanted my wine sitting around on a UPS truck.
There are few positives from this pandemic, but K&L delivery is one of them. The only downside is that it’s not truly same day, but a day or so out.
Today, among other things, K&L brought me Vigneti Massa Piccolo Derthona. I discovered that wine via Hinoki & the Bird, which offers it for $30. At K&L, it is $16.99 and it may be the best wine I have found at that price point.
