Located inside Blossom Plaza and just steps from the Chinatown Gold Line station, LA Wine puts California’s finest alcoholic beverage in the spotlight. The space is wide and bright, featuring both indoor and outdoor seating, and is anchored by a central, horseshoe-shaped wood bar. Mirrors fill the walls, providing extra depth, and bottles upon bottles of the bar’s namesake beverage can be found at the back of the shoe.
The wine program is specifically geared towards those who would like to taste all that the Golden State’s grapes have to offer. Visitors can find bottles from as close as Santa Barbara to as far as Mendocino without ever leaving their seat. LA Wine focuses on smaller producers from across California, and is able to provide a variety of stunning offerings at fair prices. Wines start out at $22 and top out at $52, so it’s easy to have a good time with friends without breaking the bank. They also offer their own house label of wine.
Along with the well-curated wine list, there are a number of craft beers and cider on offer, three by draft and the rest by can. Those looking for something to grub on as they sip and savor can order the picnic basket, which comes with three cheeses, olives, cornichon, and crackers.
LA Wine comes from the David DeLuca, who also oversees the popular DTLA Fashion District hotspot Ham & Eggs. While Ham & Eggs is known for their impressive array of European vino, LA Wine focuses on California’s grapes and feels like a well-executed passion project.
Those looking to explore a variety of wines from around California for reasonable prices will be thrilled to find their way into LA Wine. The space is bright and easy going, making it the perfect environment to sample some of the state’s finest creations.
