Tropical White Sangria 9/32
A taste of the tropics that transports to places unknown. Fresh mango, lychee, & melon are the starters that dish a dime of joy.
Askaneli, Rkatsiteli Qvevri,
Kakheti, Rep. of Georgia 14/53
Transmitting the energy of the vine and the sacred power of wine in an earthen vessel-Qvevri. This light golden wine is infused with a rich bouquet of aromas of white cherry, dried fig and dried herbs. It exhibits its luxurious qualities with playful acidity and delicate ripe tannins that colorfully shimmer with a moderately full body and a silky prolonged finish.
Toreta, Posip, Korcula, Croatia, 15/57
A dry white wine made of 100% Posip (Po-Ship) from the Island of Korcula ( Kor-Chula)
As the lobster on the label indicates this wine is ideal to drink with just about anything pulled from the sea.it is defined by the elemental combination of Mediterranean herbs, thick pine forest, sunshine and sea breeze.
Crnko, White Blend,
Maribor, Slovenia LTR BTL 15/72
High-toned Laski Riesling, Ravanec (aka Mueller Thurgau) & aromatic Muscats, and a silty minerality characteristic of the estate define this vintage. Thirst quenching and light on its feet with healthy acidity also make it difficult to set down. During the summers in the village of Jarenina, locals mix it with sparkling water and then proceed to consume well into the next day.
Der Pollerhof, Gruner Veltliner,
Niederosterreich, Austria LTR BTL 14/ 67
Fresh as a slap across the face, bright as the
morning sun and clean as a glacial lake. The light-bodied Grüner Veltliner from the Austrian grower Franz Etz makes music with its layers of fruit notes and tickles you with
perky acidity. The Grüner is your answer to the heat of a long summer day. The Grüner is a wine that is on your side while everyone else is not.
A true friend.
Feudo Luparello, Vino Bianco,
Comune di Santa Margherita di Belice, Sicily, Italy 14/61
(70/30 Grillo/ Viognier)
While it is sometimes accused of having a neutral character, here Grillo gives the wine a fresh acidity and tempers the richness and texture of the Viognier. There are lovely floral scents and stone fruit flavours coming from the Viognier. Together, the two grapes create a balanced and engaging wine that could be enjoyed with fish in a tomato sauce like the traditional Sicilyn Tonno Alla Ghiotta.
Vina Ijalba, Viura, Rioja, Spain 12/45
top white variety of La Rioja. Aka Macabeo.
A natural wine with alluring aroma, an essence of flowers and fruit, typical of the variety. It has a pale yellow color which reflects its freshness and acidity. A wine which is unctuous in the mouth and not easily forgotten. An experience to remember.
Adega do Moncao,
Vinho Verde, Portugal 10/37
What does this cross between Alvarinho and Trajadura offer us? The irreverent freshness of a young wine. A refreshing dip in the lush landscapes of the Monção and Melgaço sub-region. Its young and fresh personality, filled with aromatic nuances of peach and apricot, inspires a balanced wine with a persistent flavor. Soft and smooth, its flavor evokes the richness of our terroir.
Ljuan de Cuyo, Argentina 11/41
100% Torrontés from the vineyards of Finca
"Tío Jorge", Famatina, La Rioja, Argentina. Grown at 1580 meters over sea level. Translucent, clear with greenish and golden hues. Herbaceous aromas such as melon, pink grapefruit and banana. Unctuous, mixed fruit flavor dominated with peach and oregano spices.

Exotic Red Sangria 9/32
Un traditional, dark & mysterious w/ unique flavor & depth. A proprietary blend of blueberries, ginger & citrus. City of Angels tested and voted best on the WestSiiiide!
Askaneli, Saperavi, Mukuzani, Kakheti,
Rep. of Georgia 15/ 57
Ancient wine-makeing part of the world.
Mysterious sophisticated notes make it an ideal partner for lovers of exotic wines. Deep ruby-red color. In this elegant bouquet of wine shades of black cherry, spice, and light notes of oak prevail. The taste is soft and harmonious.
Burgenland, Austria 12/45
Zweigelt is not an indigenous Austrian grape variety but a crossing of famous Blaufränkisch x Sankt Laurent done by viticultural professor Dr. Zweigelt in the early 1920s. The variety became the most planted and prominent red grape variety in Austria. A deep ruby red hue. On the nose the wine delivers berries and cherries together with fine spices.
Colli di Castelfranci, Aglianico,
Irpinia, Campania, Italy 16/61
The perfume is intense and ethereal, in which sniffs out a unique cherry jam, red plum, almond, violet and exotic spices. The taste is full bodied and chewy, with great structure and savory persistence.
Domaine de 3 Cellier, Rhone, France 12/45
(Grenache Noir 65%, Syrah 30%, Mourvèdre 5%)
The wine is lush on the palate but lively, with a ribbon of acidity that showcases flavors of raspberry, black cherry cordial, cinnamon and nutmeg, fig jam, and orange oil
Terre d Alter, Alicante Bouschet,
Alentejo, Portugal 14/53
Colour purple-red very dense and dark. Intense notes of dark fruit and spice with a floral nuance. Plums and prune notes, great acidity and structure. Silky and rich tannins. Very long and rich finish with notes of chocolate and vanilla.
Vaeni, Xinomavro, Naoussa, Greece 11/41
red dry wine that retains the traditionality of the noble Xinomavro variety, grown in the charismatic wine growing area of Naoussa. The rich aroma, the distinct bouquet and the deep red color are the trademark of this wine that shares the name that produced it.
Los Morros, Carmenere,
Central Valley, Chile 10/37
Brilliant intense purple. Introduces itself as a magical valley of green plan chiles followed by
toffee, leather, cedar and strawberries.
Lively, juicy, black cherries and strawberries notes. It has silky tannins being round and tasteful.
Lola Mora, Malbec, Barrancas, Maipu, Mendoza, Argentina 12/45
Red, violet and blue with freshness and typicity of the Andean terroir. Medium bodied with pleasant tannins and red fruit. Named after the grand daughters of Edgardo Stalloca-owner.
Whether it be enjoying a delicious seafood plate accompanied by an austere, mineral driven white wine, or treating your palate to a steak skewer with our house made chimichurri, and a dark, luscious red... it’s all here for you to explore and savour. With the elemental design of raw historical concrete floors, metal accents, knotted natural woods and tropical plant life, it pairs just right with soundtracks of smooth samba, traditional tango, eclectic electronic beats or some old-school jazz. It’s rewarding for us to express this to our guests and more importantly for you to embrace. And for those who have had the pleasure of traveling, may your time spent here transport to those far away places for a moment in time.
