The bar staff can recommend and pour more than 30 wines by the glass and flight—which includes three 2-ounce pours, or a total of 6 ounces of wine—with 30 open bottles rotating daily. Glasses sparkle with the Cavit ‘11 Moscato from Italy ($6), the Armida ’11 Poizin zinfandel from Sonoma ($10), or an international flight of bubbles ($13). A selection of more than a 150 boutique wines by the bottle are also available for purchase. Patrons will also receive an additional 10% off a bottle-to-go purchase.
At Vino Prima, the wine pours freely. Surrounded by 360-degree views of the Santa Cruz wharf and sparkling lights of the boardwalk, patrons soak in the views as they sip their choice of wine by the flight or glass, with a rotating selection of 30 wines pouring daily. Enclosed in their protective casings, more than 150 boutique wines are also available by the bottle, which can later be filled with a miniature version of your favorite 14th-century shipwreck. On some weekends, belly dancing and live-music sessions create a lively atmosphere to complement the always-flowing libations.
