I love this Wine & Cheese tasting bar (our 5th time back), with over 40 wines by the glass and great selection of cheese plates that pair well with their wines by the glass you can easily spend the afternoon here. To complement their wines by the glass, they have an excellent selection of wines by the bottle offered for... More

My wife and I wanted a little bread, cheese and a bottle of wine before dinner and this is the place to go for the wine and cheese but it's really unfortunate that they don't have any bread! They also slipped in a $3 for a wine carrier without asking me if that was OK so watch out!

The two ladies absolutely made the wine tasting the highlight of our weekend. We even got a quick yoga lesson! If you want a great wine tasting experience, go... More

This is a great place to visit in Half Moon Bay. The staff is professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Excellent wine selection and nice small spirits display. We frequently have flights and cheeses recommend by the staff and never are disappointed.

Rather than attempt eating at a nearby restaurant on this busy weekend, we selected several cheeses, wine and a few more items for our afternoon meal. They have interesting wines against the wall throughout the tasting and table area. Staff seemed informed about their bottles of wine while pouring for the tasting group.

So glad we happened on to this shop. Great selections of wine,meats and cheeses and party ware. The staffer we worked with was friendly and so knowledgeable on the wines. She directed us to some awesome selections. We sampled wine and cheese on premise, but this place is perfect to stock up for a picnic!

I am very surprised at the other reviews that have said rude service and no acknowledgement, when we walked in we were greeted immediately and said Hello to. We came in to do wine tasting specifically of which they have a great little bar in the back to do so. They also have a large area for purchasing wine and... More
