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 […]

2008 Aglianico, Kenneth Volk Vineyards, Pomar Junction Vineyard, Paso Robles, CA

Gotta love a vineyard with two tastings rooms in two different cities! Our first introduction to Kenneth Volk Vineyards was at a tasting room shared with Lone Madrone in Paso Robles, CA.We then stumbled upon its cousin in Santa Maria, CA. When we saw the Santa Maria tasting room, we thought we were seeing double […]

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. […]

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 […]

Lompoc Wine Ghetto in Lompoc, CA

Some friends told us about the wine ghetto in Lompoc, CA so we decided to stop by on our way to an overnight in Santa Maria, CA wine country. It’s unusual in that it’s not your traditional winery, with rolling hills and beautiful rows of grape vines. Instead it’s a row of low slung warehouses […]

2010 Proprietary Red, KitFox Vineyards

We received this red wine as a gift. It’s another daily bottle blend that we feel is tasty and enjoyable. We wouldn’t pull it out on a special occasion but for every day it’s lovely. There is interesting history to the vineyard’s name. The vineyard shares a home with the endangered Kit Fox hence the […]

2008 Zaca Mesa Syrah – Santa Ynez Valley

It’s a beautiful Spring evening and we’ve decided to open a Syrah from Zaca Mesa, which is located in the Santa Ynez Valley in California. This valley holds a lot of great memories for us. This valley was our first introduction to wine country. It’s only an hour and a half from Los Angeles so […]

City Sip Wine Bar in Los Angeles, CA

We happened upon City Sip during a search for LA wine bars about a year ago. We ventured in and Helen served us a bunch of incredible wine and cheese along with great conversation and we vowed to be back. And we did go back. We went back on Jane’s birthday and then bought a […]
