A friend and I stopped in here late on a Saturday afternoon for a tasting. Before I even looked at the menu I saw a separate menu that had a "bubbly tasting" for $15. My friend and I both ordered that. Then since it was happy hour, we also ordered two appetizer plates, the cucumber, feta and some sort of bean dip and a sort of pork rillette platter with a bit of mustard, pickled peppers, onions and pickles on the side, with mini crostinis. Cute and well presented and plenty of food to snack on. Each plate was $5 on the happy hour menu, but the other food on the menu looked really nice and I'll definitely be back to try something different. They were pouring very different wines and things I've never heard of which was exciting for the wine snobs out there that want to try new things when they go out! They were also pouring SoloUva from Franciacorta, Italy- awesome! Our server was very nice answering our (my) random questions from time to time and was able to explain everything and was very nice about it. Someone that knows what they are pouring is huge points! (It doesn't always happen these days)
There was a French wine that I'd never heard of and I asked our servers opinion on it. I went for a glass of that- first thought was it was flat and seemed watered down in a way. VERY different then any white wine I had. I still kept thinking it was flat haha, but a few more sips in and it had me. I wish I remembered the name. You can tell they have some great people doing the selections and research for their menu. I was very impressed. They have local wines and lots of foreign wines, a great mix of both!
The space itself is quite small and intimate, not a place for groups in my opinion. Four people or so to some tables, seats at the bar and a couple of tables outside. The design is very beautiful and the wine along the main wall was well displayed and unique, it's really an eye catcher. I'll recommend friends here and definitely be back in the near future myself.
I'd say the only "con" was the last wine on our wine tasting. My friend and I agreed that it was a "sad" way to end the tasting because the wine was quite boring itself- but that's an opinion and I have a boyfriend that loves a good Lambrusco. But this wasn't full of much flavor, I've had much better in the past. That's the only thing I've got to say! Can't wait to be back to explore more unique wines and to learn more! Maybe they even host classes? I'd love that!
