WINE

MY CONCEPT IS SIMPLE…ALL OF MY WINES ARE CHOSEN TO COMPLIMENT THE CHEF’S FOOD.

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF OUR PRIVATE RESERVE LIST, ALL WINES ARE BY THE GLASS OR BY THE BOTTLE WITH A HEALTHY POUR (FOUR GLASSES PER BOTTLE).

ALL ARE PRICED THE SAME EITHER WAY….DIVIDE THE PRICE OF THE BOTTLE BY FOUR GLASSES…..WHAT CAN I SAY?   I LIKE WINE.
