Needed a bottle of wine to take to dinner. Checked reviews for something near by and SCWC popped up. We were having lunch right across the street at Nick's so we stopped by. Great people in the shop. Did a little tasting and ended up walking out with 3 bottles. Very happy with the choices and service.

This was a very happening wine bar because there was a street festival going on in San Clemente that day. They were a bit overwhelmed with the crowds. The servers did a great job of taking care of the packed place. The hamburgers were fine and the wine flights were interesting. It is a favorite place of our son's but... More

Used to love this place with the prior owners. New owners bought this wine shop a little over 3 years ago. The place got a great remodel, and they have a decent wine selection. A couple owns the place. Stacy is sweet and seems genuine, but her husband Jeff is unprofessional and out of line. He's partial to female customers... More

As a business owner I take full responsibility for any of my comments or actions that have offended you and or Shamus. It saddens me that I have created such a negative experience for you in our store. My intent was never to offend either of you with my joking and sarcastic humor. Obviously my comments were not received as... More

We had a private party there for a birthday in the family. The service was excellent, they catered the food from a place next door and it was really good. Cocktail glasses with either sweet potatoes or garlic mashed, meat of choice, veggies and sauce. Also, mini cupcakes of various kinds that were rich and sinful! We had beers and... More

Also, a most excellent variety of cheeses, some yummy tapas style foods, this is one of my favourite haunts in San Clemente. A very small 3 tabled area on the street, so get in early if you want some rays. Music at night..this palce can really... More
