WINE SHOP not too far from Hollywood

Can somebody recommend a great wine store to me? I need to get a gift card to give to my friend who had been kind enough to let me stay with him while a search for a place to live. He pretty much opens a bottle of wine every night. ;)

Also, I'm specificially looking for a store, not a restaurant or wine bar.

Thank you!

    1. K&L on Vine Street, Greenblatt's already mentioned, Topline on San Fernando Road just east of I-5, Silver Lake Wine, but if coming over the hill to the valley, then Mission Wine & Spirits on Burbank near Woodman.

      Mission Wine & Spirits
      13645 Burbank Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 91401

        agree with k&l, they are located smack dab in hollywood.

        1. re: wilafur

          +1 for K&L. The online website is easy to navigate and order from...TOO easy actually. You can have merchandise shipped from the Northern California stores/wearhouse for free if you pick up at the Hollywood store. The prices are consistently 5-10% cheaper than Wally's.

          1. re: Porthos

            Another vote for K&L. Porthos hit the nail on the head with the ability to have wine shipped for free to their store from any of their other stores. With that service, their inventory is probably one of the best in the country. Their library wines are also sourced well which makes buying aged wine less of a concern for me.

            1. re: spoggly

              K & L certainly fits the bill. I love Topline, and find good sales at Greenblatt's....but K & L is terrific for gifts. And they're incredibly helpful and knowledgable.

      2. Try Venokado. Small independent with nice, knowledgable people. Not your usual inventory and they have wine related gifts. 7714 Fountain Ave., West Hollywood CA 90046

        7714 Fountain Ave West, Hollywood, CA

        1. Domaine LA
          6801 Melrose Avenue
          (323) 932-0280

          Jill is terrific.

          1. Second both Greenblatt's and Venokado, however Greenblatt's doesn't do gift cards/certificates.
