Wines on Tap - SD?

Loved finding wines on tap at Underbelly. Who else in San Diego is doing this?

      a wine bar website that doesn't show what wines they pour? not even a page devoted to their wine philosophy? a screen for old movies? concept doesn't interest me. wine does.

        Most wine bars don't show which wines they pour, e.g. Wine Steals hasn't much about their offered wines and philosophy but is a good wine bar. With your (in my opinion unreasonable) criteria you will miss out on a number if good places.

    2. I think Linkery does this, they call it a cask system.

      1. The Linkery was pouring wines from Triple B Ranch in Valley Center from kegs recently. I thought the wines were very good. Blind Lady Ale House has wine on tap.

                    Yup, they do. Haven't drank from one in a gazillion years.

        2. The Andaz downtown has a large selection of wine on tap

            Technically Andaz doesn't have wine on tap. The wine is still in a bottle. Up in North San Diego County there are a few doing it - Tommy V's Urban Kitchen in Carlsbad and Vinz Wine Bar in Escondido both have wine on tap. Eco-friendly and stainless steel fermented Chardonnays.
