LA Wine Bar

I wanted to visit LA Wine Bar around the time that they opened in order to avoid crowds. This meant that not only could I grab photos with no one in them (blogger life), but that I could have a more intimate experience and chat with the staff.

When I arrived, the lovely and informative Ramona was on duty. I normally just gravitate toward red wines but wanted to sample a variety so I could report back.

Spoiler alert: everything was delicious. And I do mean everything.

What I loved most was the extensive selection of California wines. It’s actually very rare that I have wine bottled in the USA. If felt good supporting a local business that also supports local businesses.

One of the first wines recommended to me was a chilled, carbonic red wine called “Love You Bunches.” I very rarely have carbonic wines and I’ve certainly never had a red one. I decided that evening that it was my new favorite wine. Now I just have to get my hands on a bottle.

To nibble on something I ordered the “picnic basket” which consisted of a variety of cheeses, crackers, olives, and gherkins. I do wish there was a bigger bites selection but this did the trick.

Throughout the evening I sampled the following wines:

  • Fiction – Red Blend ’16
  • Husch – Sauvignon Blanc ’18
  • A Grenache Blanc ’17 by Groundwork

As I mentioned, they were all delicious and I highly recommend.

I did love that the wine bar had something to offer for those that aren’t wine fanatics like me. If you’re not into wine, and I don’t know why you wouldn’t be, you’ll be pleased to know that in addition to an extensive selection of Californian wines AND their private label, they have a variety of craft beer.

If you’ve visited LA Wine Bar how was your experience? What was your favorite wine?
