Excellent wine! The bar is very small but also very nice. Would definitely recommend it for a quick stop if you want to try some awesome wines! The white wine is specially good!

Few wines to taste and we didn't like them. Very dark tasting room. Owner was present but not interested to explain his wine, the younger guy who poured to us was very helpful.

Fascinating visit with the owner, Aimee. The visit is a must as he has a selection of wines that are unique. Very willing to share his knowledge. Originally from Switzerland but has worked as a chef in Mexico City and Orange County CA
