Stags’ Leap 2009 Napa Valley Petite Sirah

Not too long ago I celebrated (read-made it through) yet another birthday. I was happy to receive a gift card from a coworker so I ambled off to my neighborhood Bevmo to see what special birthday beverage could be found. An aside regarding Bevmo, while many consumers are drawn in to the stores by their […]

Vino Wine and Tapas Room in Encino, CA & 2010 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

On this beautiful Memorial Day, we would like to remember those who have fallen in service of our country. You will always be honored for your service. And thank you to those who have served and continue to serve today. We are so grateful. On Saturday of this Memorial Day weekend, we decided to check […]

Onda Ristorante, The Mirage Casino, Las Vegas

On the way back from our trip to Zion, we stopped in Las Vegas again. This time, we decided to look for another wine bar in one of the casinos we hadn’t already visited the week before. At that time, we had only found La Cave at Wynn. By the time we tried La Cave, […]

Le Cirque, Bellagio Casino, Las Vegas, NV

On a recent trip outside Los Angeles, we overnighted in Las Vegas and of course had to seek out great wine. After an uninspiring glass of Chardonnay at a convenient but unnamed casino, we had to find something more satisfying. Suprisingly, it’s not easy to find a good wine bar in Vegas casinos. We did […]

Cork Bar, Downtown LA, CA

Sunday afternoon is always a great time to relax and think about taking a field trip. So we decided to travel outside the Valley for an afternoon and went to downtown LA to try Cork Bar. We noticed that there was lots of street parking, which is always a bonus. Heading inside we noticed that […]

The Mercantile Wine Bar, Hollywood, CA

It’s Sunday and Steve and I are ready to relax in the 90 degree LA weather. We looked around and decided to try The Mercantile Wine Bar in Hollywood, CA. And boy were we glad we did. First they have a huge, free parking lot in the heart of Hollywood. That’s nearly impossible to find. […]

Full of Life Flatbread Kitchen, Los Alamos, CA

Flatbread, as we like to call it, is a welcome counterpoint to the pricey cafes that can be too common in wine country. This down homey restaurant in Los Alamos, California is a great place to relax and enjoy some outstanding pizza in a family style setting. They also have a wine and beer bar up front that is sure to […]

vbw (Venice Beach Wine), Venice, CA

After a quick trip to the J. Paul Getty Museum to view the Herb Ritts photography exhibit, Jane and I decided to revisit a wine bar that I found last year in Santa Monica, CA. Unfortunately, when we arrived we discovered that it had gone out of business-Damn! But thankfully a quick Yelp search located another wine bar only a few […]

Artisan Cheese Gallery, Studio City, CA

We discovered this quaint little place, called the Artisan Cheese Gallery, since it’s just down the street from our favorite bank. As you can imagine they specialize in a blinding selection of not-so-run-of-the-mill cheeses. Jane and I often stop by on the weekends and share a salad and sandwich. If you can believe it the salad […]

2007 Silverado Zinfandel & Ombra Ristorante in Studio City, CA

Steve and I visited Silverado Vineyards during our trip to Napa when our film Take Me Home was in the festival. The tasting room had amazing views of the Valley and the server was very nice and accommodating. When we got home, we realized we had visited Silverado on our first trip to Napa with […]
