We went to the store to do a tasting to find they don’t do it without an appointment. Then decided to go back the next day and tried calling for 5 hours. Nobody would ever answer the phone or call me back. We finally just went back to the store. The lady had no response for why she couldn’t answer the phone. She gave us the tasting and glasses. The glasses were nothing special.
We had some initial concerns about this place because I had tried to make a reservation (as the Groupon said we had to do) on three different occasions with no luck. Tried on the website form and got no response, called and left a message with no return call, and talked to someone on the phone who told me to call the day before. Called the day before, left another message. Showed up and it didn't seem that anyone knew we were coming. That being said, Scholar was delightful and knowledgeable about the wines she was serving us. We had great conversation with her and it ended up being a terrific tasting. I wish that the reservation process had not left us feeling apprehensive! We had read other reviews of this place that said they'd had the same problem. If they could get that part fixed, I think it would be a terrific experience for people.
This establishment does not do wine tastings during the week! And even though there was nobody else there when I went I think it's important to call for a reservation to make sure you have a seat. Other than that I liked the wine selection, just a quick 4-5 samples I think, and the owner was very knowledgeable. She even asked us what our tastes in wine were and gave us some reccomendations from South Africa that we really liked.
