    There's little not to like, assuming you like a wine bar that elicits descriptions like cozy, intimate and private. If an escape from the city is what you need, there's also lots of brick and bocce.

    Quiet, atmospheric living room, if your living room was visited by a talented and friendly sommelier.

    It's a great little sitting room atmosphere that encourages hushed conversation; those looking for a snack will be happy to find cheese, crackers & charcuterie to complement their fruit of the vine. Read more

    Go for the wine and stay for the Bocce. Just get a bottle too, you know that you'll end up ordering another glass...

    Not the most amazing wine, but absolutely love the ambiance. The pinot from France was a nice easy drink. Definitely worth checking out.

    Fireplace and couches are a great combination. Just make sure that you don't fall asleep (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The first bodega in my rtw trip that has portuguese wine. Ramos pinto is suave but still has a lot of body.

    Definitely recommend getting a flight (three 1/3 pours). They pour generously and choose the wines thoughtfully, making it a great experience for your palate.

    Have whatever the current red flight is, and order a cheese plate, making sure to include a cheese from Spain. Read more

    Show up on a night when co-owner/proprietor Craig Reigel is working, and taste whatever wine he says has been recently added to the list.
