I went last night with a friend because we had purchased Scoop St. certificates for a wine tasting. We paid $10 each and were able to taste 5 different wines and sample a plate of olives, cheeses, pita and hummus. The sommelier, Ivan, was wonderful and offered his opinions, facts and answers to our questions about the different wines. We sat downstairs, where its fairly dark, but plenty cozy. They offer their wine tastings Wed and Thurs evenings from 7-9 and they are usually $25 and include a glass of your choosing in addition. I love the West Village, so this is a great location and I would definitely recommend. Ask for Ivan!
