With its rustic wooden beams and a library loft—not to mention a selection of wines to rival any Napa or Sonoma store—this is the oenophile’s Shangri-La. Sit at the bar and get an education about the art, science, and soul of the winemaking process—owners Luke, Billy, and Dagan will be happy to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about wine. Not in the mood for a lesson and prefer to simply relax? Head upstairs to the lounge and flip through a book, or play a game (board games are available), while you savor the nectar of the gods. Add in cheese and charcuterie and you can probably skip dinner.
