We LOVE this place. Great wine, primarily Spanish and Portuguese varietals- which makes the tastings unique. The employees here are always pleasant, and are perfectly happy to chat with you. There is a small, quiet seating area outside that makes it feel so far away...More

Good tasting wine. Got a bottle of the Red. Easy in and out. If your downtown you should stop in. You can buy wine by the glass. I think this place would be great latter in the day so you could talk to the locals.
