This is an interesting store that sells wines and cheese. They have all kinds of wines and all kinds of prices for them. They also sell wine by the glass at specific dates and have tasting parties. Parking for this area is not very easy during rush hours, plan accordingly.

We came in here as we love wine. The concept was great. We ordered a flight of wine to try-- although the selection was good we would have rather picked the three wines to taste rather than being selected for us. It was a fun night out non-the-less.

I popped in here after my gondola cruise with Gondola Adventures, which is literally steps away. The atmosphere is fun and the service is great. They have a terrific selection as well. What a great little find!

I spent the greater part of the evening of 2/17/10 at the Wine Lab with my husband and another couple. I really liked the "idea" of this place ~~ the environment is pleasantly sophisticated and the format is wine and snacks in a congenial atmosphere. The clientele is multi-generational and there are lots of opportunities to engage in friendly conversation.... More

I found the Wine Lab through a friend who lives near it. It's a great fun experience to "wine taste" in their shop. However, the reason that I took time to write this review is because of their customer service. Twice now, I have wanted wines that I've enjoyed somewhere else and didn't know how to procure. I have emailed... More

This small but quaint wine bar is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon or evening exploring your taste buds. The Wine Lab's cozy yet modern environment lends itself nicely for a great date setting. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there and enjoyed tasting the "Over the Top Reds". The wines were great and the people were awesome!... More

I discovered this place by driving by it on PCH. It looks so intriguing, nestled into a building that looks like a ship from up the hill at the hospital where I work. Some coworkers of mine and I decided to check it out. What an awesome experience! It is basically a small wine and cheese bar. The ambiance is... More
