By Jim Boyce

I wrote earlier about the eight South African wine-by-the-glass options offered for a mere rmb15 at restaurant and wine bar Pinotage in Sanlitun Soho in Beijing (see here). Now neighbor and Chilean wine specialists La Cava de Laoma has its own most excellent deal, with six options at rmb20 on Fridays and Saturdays. The lineup includes a pair of reds from O. Fournier and a rose and three reds from Calcu. You can also expect huge pours — 175 ml.

The shop is inside the south entrance of the Sanlitun Soho’s multicolored building — address here — and open from 10 AM to 10 PM. Pair a visit to La Cava and Pinotage for a mini wine tour of the Southern Hemisphere.

(I stopped by on Friday night and tried three glasses, with the Calcu Cabernet Franc easily my favorite. Give it a try.)
