I've actually considered not telling anyone about this place as I want it all to myself (hard to buck the programming!). I stumbled upon this place with a friend of mine one Thursday afternoon after enjoying a well deserved day of rest at the beach. Four hours later I found myself trying to find a reason to leave as I was feeling bad for taking up so much of these wonderful peoples time. We tasted 9 wines from the Santa Monica Mountains and met some of the most interesting people to date, a stuntman, a falconer, a didgeridoo player, an amazing artist whose paintings adorn the walls, two winemakers and a ballerina, magical! Being from Boston, I felt as though I found a new family.
Pros: Some of the most interesting wines I've tasted
Cons: They eventually close each day
