Wine was once so expensive that the rich conspicuously spilled it on their golden capes instead of wasting it invisibly in their stomachs. Secure enough wine to spill it braggadociously with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of wine and small plates from The Nose Wine Bar in Pasadena.

The Nose Wine Bar superbly sniffs out small-batch wines from family-owned, single-vineyard, and organic wineries to pair with its tasty small plates, as mentioned in the LA Times. The Nose pours reds, whites, blends, and sparkling selections by the glass ($7–$14) and in flights grouped by character, and, just like tires, rotated every few days by two master sommeliers. Drink to the tune of "La Marseillaise" with the A La Francaise three-wine flight ($15), or shrink your burgundy-stained carbon footprint with the Organic Italian three-wine flight ($15). Elegant small plates' piquant flavors complement the grapen goodness; customers snap up lime-drizzled shrimp ceviche ($6), olive tapenade ensconced in a toasted baguette ($5), or asparagus salad ($6), served warm with boiled egg, parmesan, and an optional side of the waiter’s feelings on the Monroe Doctrine.

The Nose surrounds guests with exposed stone walls and swimming schools of wine bottles, creating an expertly curated lair for tasting the fermented fruit spirits. Customers enjoy a wide range of wines, as the staff of former private eyes is expert in tracking down incognito vineyards and busting their chops until they spill all about their most serious spills.

Nose Wine Bar

The Nose Wine Bar collects rare and unusual vintages from across the globe, pairing bouquets with a range of hot and cold small plates amid the soft light of flickering candles. A rotating wine menu culls the creations of French, Italian, and Californian vintners and includes three-wine-tasting flights to tempt indecisive diners and three-headed wine critics alike. Rows of gleaming bottles line the walls as creamy leather seating surrounds intimate two- and four-person tables. On Friday and Saturday, live musicians vibrate wineglasses and awaiting eardrums with solo melodies.
