I have been a sporadic customer. But I like this place and appreciate the owners more on each visit. Attended my first club sampling tonight of the wine club offerings this month. All selections we're noteworthy and seasonably priced. The other members we're gracious and...More

Whoever came up with the idea for Ruby Tap is brilliant. In one wall are windows featuring a couple dozen interesting wine selections on tap, both reds and chilled whites. You can pop your credit card in a slot in the wall and press a...More
