Yiannis’s wine experts guide guests through a tasting of six red and white wines ranging from sweet to dry. Meanwhile, cigars, such as La Gloria Cubana ($5.25 each) and Tabaco Ramones ($7 each), patiently wait in a temperature- and humidity-controlled humidor.<p>
Crystal Cameron, the sommelier behind Crystal Palate, has had an adventurous life. She's worked as a news anchor and PR executive. She volunteers around Virginia. But a love of wine has stuck with her throughout her life, and she now works to bring the experience of visiting a wine bar to homes and parties. Her knowledge is backed by a certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers, and she uses that background to introduce oenophiles and rookie wine tasters alike to new varietals. Her expertise is visible online in a series of food and wine pairings that include everything from flap steak and rioja to salmon and pinot noir.
Yiannis Wine Shop
Handcrafted woodwork shelves hold Yiannis's 500+ bottles of wine, enclosing customers in a wine-centric universe complete with wine tastings. Boasting an expansive selection of red, white, and sparkling wines, the shop focuses on California wines and stores its more expensive vinos in a temperature-controlled room. In addition to wines, Yiannis lovingly keeps a selection of fine cigars from around the world in a humidor. Within its humidity-controlled confines, each stogie's ideal flavor and indifference toward people lighting it on fire is preserved.
