About Us

We have moved to Costa Mesa - this is an archive of our original site in Newport

We believe in a comfortable place for wine novices and lovers of all kinds. Wine should never be intimidating.

We believe you should be your own wine expert. The best way to find and buy wines is by tasting them.

We believe that you should trust your taste more than wine critics' scores. Generally, we will not emphasize scores since they are just somebody else’s opinion. We’re not in the business of telling you what you should like, we’re in the business of helping you discover your own personal taste. 

We believe in small production wines that you cannot get at chain stores. The vast majority of wine is industrially made but wines from small producers are made with care and passion. These wines are far more interesting and provide better value and memories.

We believe in finding the best quality wine for the price (Quality Price Ratio) and being price competitive with other local wine stores. Club members get guaranteed low pricing.

We believe in exploring many styles of wine from all over the world. We seek diversity in wine, thought and people.

We want to be a trusted source for discovering and purchasing wine.

Founded in 1997 by Roger & ChrisAnn they, along with our wonderful staff, want to share our love of wine with you.

Roger Richards - wine director
