RESERVATIONS

WELCOME

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.

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. 

Posip, Korkula, Croatia 15/57

Deliciously austere, scents of the sea with crisp salinity. From younger vines that spent less time on the skins (2 hours or so). Its a remarkably light and fresh Pošip (Pr: Po ship) Ideal to drink with just about anything pulled from the sea.  It's defined by the elemental combination of Mediterranean herbs, thick pine forest, sunshine and sea breeze.

Askaneli, Tsolikouri, Prima,

Imereti, Republic of Georgia 12/45

 “Prima” produced from  the Tsolikouri grape varietal from the Republic of Georgia's western region of Imereti. The wine is elegant and firm as the famous Georgian ballerina, Prima Irma Nioradze. With mineral and floral aromatics that are characterized by extraordinary freshness.  It is perfectly balanced with notes of crisp, green apple, ripe citrus and exotic, tropical fruit. 

Apátsági Pince, Juhfark,

Nagy-Somlói, Hungary  16/61

Like much of Eastern Europe, Hungary is still rebuilding its wine industry after it was nationalized under communism.    

One of those great terroirs is Somló, which holds a viticultural history dating to Roman times. Somló is the country’s smallest appellation, consisting of a lone volcanic basalt monolith decorated with the crumbling remains of a 13th-century castle on top. This wine is stupendous, unique, an utter chameleon in the glass. The intense ripeness and acidity here is mesmerizing and with each passing hour, the full-bodied flavors bounced from tropical to stone to orchard fruits, all while thrumming with stony volcanic minerality. It’s powerful, mind-blowing stuff that truly has no analog in taste.

Crnko, Maribor, Slovenia LTR  BTL  12/57

High-toned Laski Riesling, Ravenec & 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.

Maurer Oszkar, Crazy Lud, Subotica, Serbia 15/57

ORGANIC / VEGAN / LOW SULPHITE

Bright and sharp notes of yellow nectarine mingling with floral elements in this indigenous blend from Serbia. The wine is aged in a combination of steel and very old oak, maintaining both brisk acidity and elegant structure.

Origin: Fruska Gora, Serbia.Vintage: 2021
Grape varieties: Ezerjó, Szeremi Zold, Bakator, Welschriesling and others
Food pairings: Seafood, poultry, vegetarian, fatty dishes
ABV: 10.5%

 

Tetramythos, Roditis,

Pelaponnese, Greece 12/45

Fermentation: Stainless Steel

Fermentation duration: 3 months

Aging method: Stainless Steel 100%

Aging duration: 3 months

Vineyards: Stefania, Palia Ambelia, Koumarous, etc. Meaning: rings, old vines, arbutus field

Soil Type: Calcareous, Alluvial & Loam.. Endowed with uncommon weight and intensity for its modest price-tag. Scented and fine, it offers a honied dryness underpinned by firm acidity that confers a certain seriousness, while nonetheless offering a generous measure of pure vinous pleasure. 

Ercole, Bianco Monferrato,

Piedmonte, Italy 10/47  LTR BTL

Cortese (90%), Chardonnay (8%)& Sauvignon Blanc (2%). 

At their best, wines made from the native grape variety Cortese boast a serious yet pleasing weight, pronounced minerality, and beautiful acidity. In fact, the Cortese-based wines of nearby Gavi are among the most treasured whites of Northern Italy. We have discovered that adding a touch of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc further sharpens and thereby elevates this wine. Fun fact: Cortese was first documented in 1614, when the Castle of Casale Monferrato documented the grape in its ledger.

 

 Ken Forrester, Chenin blanc,

South Africa 10/37

Veteran South African hospitality professional and first exporter of South African wines to the states... meet his wine! A youthful, fresh wine with quince and pear aromatics. Crunchy green apple and grapefruit on the mid palate.

Great mouthfeel.

Reds

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!

Coquelicot, Bordeaux blend,

Santa Ynez, CA 2009 14/53

Cab Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot &  Malbec come together for your pleasure. Intense violet hue & red skinned berries & cooking spices on the nose. Round tannins & lively acidity. A sure treat.

Fragas do Lecer, Mencia,

Galicia, Spain 15/57

(100% Mencia)

Dark purple. Highly perfumed blue fruit, floral and baking spice aromas show very good clarity and a touch of smoky minerality. Silky, seamless and precise on the palate, offering bitter cherry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. The spice and mineral notes drive a long, focused finish that's given shape by smooth, fine-grained tannins.

Domaine des Cellier, "3"

Cote du Rhone, France 12/45

(Grenache Noir 65% , Syrah 30% , Mourvèdre 5%)

What an introduction to the forthright virtues of of this producer. Supple, fervid and spicy brew of delicious black fruit that is almost dangerously gulpable. Hailing from two small parcels totalling about half a hectare just outside the appellation of Châteauneuf  du Pape, this greets you like a Labrador puppy wagging its tail. 

Ercole, Barbera, Monferrato, Italy

LTR Btl 10/45 

All stainless. Concrete barrel fermented.

 Many folks know the Barbera grape for its bright acidity, and this wine is no exception to the rule. Far less known is the fact that Monferrato’s most prestigious zones are dedicated to Barbera plantings. Wine of great depth and balance with ripe red fruits accompanied with soft mineral and floral core

Mainerdo, Nove Rosso,

Piedmonte, Italy 14/53

The color is brilliant ruby red with dark purple highlights. The bouquet is rich in red berry fruits, plum jam, cherries in liqueur, with subtle scents of vanilla, black pepper, and blackberry and blackcurrant jam. On the palate the wine is velvety, full and very harmonious. This wine’s outstanding smoothness is due to rather contained acidity and a mature, unaggressive tannic structure.

 

Terre d Alter, Alicante Bouschet,

Alentejo, Portugal 12/45

Palate medium-structured, soft and persistent. Color 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.

Los Morros, Carmenere,

Central Valley, Chile 10/37

(100% Carmenere)

The name LOS MORROS, or “the hills”,

comes from vineyards in Maipo.  Intense purple.

Toffee, leather, cedar and strawberries.

Lively, juicy, black cherries and strawberries notes. It has silky tannins being round and tasteful.
