Top Wine Stores in West LA?
After hearing a lot about The Wine House I checked it out--not bad, but I found it overpriced and the wines I ended up with weren't terribly impressive (Cloudline Pinot is bad enough I discovered, but Cloudline Pinot for $20 is awful).
I've been to Moe's in Brentwood which, again, was solid enough but a bit pricey. Maybe a bit impersonal?
I'm looking for a place where I can build a relationship with whoever is selling me wine. One of the things I miss about being back east is my wine guy Joe at The Grape d'Vine in Tappan, NY. Joe knew what I liked in a wine, was an educator, and was always excited about getting new stuff in.
Anyone think they might have a good suggestion?
Du Vin on San Vicente is my favorite.
Wine Expo on Santa Monica for Italians.
Venokado on Fountain impressed me with the couple of selections they made.
Back Eastside I like Silverlake Wine more and more.
