Loved this little wine tasting spot. Dallas, our server, was super chill and nice. All of the wines were very drinkable. We walked away with two bottles. Relaxed experience. Definitely recommend.

Good wine. Easy-going and laid back atmosphere. The dog, (Max?) was amazingly well behaved and I loved seeing him the in the store. I loved the books on the counters of "Dogs of Wine". That was fun to look through. Got a bottle from here.
