The motto here is “age improves with wine!” Owners Colleen and Robert Mann make the slogan come true by offering a variety of superb wines and tasty snacks in a warm and congenial atmosphere throughout the day.
Wine portfolio: Wines are primarily from Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties, some from Paso Robles and Amador County, with Spanish wines to be added. “We offer three unique ways to enjoy the wine selection,” Robert explained. “One is the traditional pouring of a glass from bottles, another is pouring a glass from the premium keg wines, and the third is using our Napa Tech wine station. Here the customer purchases a debit card, inserts it into a slot and pushes a button for a taste, half glass or full glass. The customer can make any selection from one or more of the 12 wines.
