Our Attention to Wines
We offer over fourty wines by the glass. Our full wine selection features over 800 wines to enjoy. To enhance the aromas and flavors of each wine we offer, we use the finest Riedel crystalware. Each glass of wine is a generous six-ounces and our flights of wine include three, two-ounce pours, served with a gourmet cheese sampler. This gives you the opportunity to compare wines from different regions.
