Choose Between Two Options

  • $29 for a wine tasting for two with wineglasses and a gourmet cheese platter (a $70 value)
  • $39 for everything in the above option with one bottle of wine up to a $29 value to take home (a $99 value)

The tasting includes samples of six wines from a selection of 18, which guests can swirl within a large bordeaux-style glass whose ample bowl allows each wine's aromas to mingle. Between sips, the host will impart information about the varieties they are sampling and encourage discussion of subtle flavors. Additionally, the winemaker personally will select samples of gourmet cheeses intended to pair with the wines. Among the selection of bottles of wine available to take home are the 2011 Sangiovese, Temecula red and 2012 Sauvignon Blanc.

Orange Coast Winery

At this self-described urban microwinery, vintners crush, age, and bottle their own vintages using local California grapes. Inside its capacious cellars, juices from grapes grown in regions such as Paso Robles, Napa, and Sonoma age in oak barrels. The resulting vintages are available for purchase onsite, online, or through a nearby genie, and also fill glasses Thursday–Sunday in the attached tasting room. There, patrons can meander through rows of barrels, stop to rest their glass on a granite-topped bar, and on nicer days, catch a salt-sprinkled breeze through the open warehouse door.
