The wine and atmosphere are great, especially when there's a band playing. Wine selections are certainly are vast and are not your everyday grocery or super store types...the smell of burnt cheese is just not appealing though.

Stopped by for a glass of wine. The owner took care of us and we really enjoyed the experience. The owner is a very knowledgeable sommelier. The appetizers were great

Wine, craft beer, cheese and charcuterie in a relaxed atmosphere. Totally Instagram worthy. Came here with a friend and had a blast catching up over a few drink.

Owner is extremely well knowledged and very friendly. The wine is a bit pricey , especially the rioga vino bodega wine list. They have wonderful goat cheese! I would return but it's not a typical wine bar in my opinion, but worth visiting!

Atmosphere was warm and friendly. We were well attended to and had the opportunity to meet the owner of the establishment. Enjoyed great wines and I will recommend the goat cheese and basil pesto app.
