Drink Better

"[Ethical, sustainable, natural, low-intervention, organic/biodynamic] wine doesn't have to be expensive: any European worth their salt will tell you that. But for those of us w/ limited wheat-from-the-chaff skills who scan the wine aisle in search of something decent using invented metrics, like "graphic design of label" & "maybe the third-cheapest Pinot is always the best," finding something good on a budget is a crapshoot. We can sing no higher praises, then, for Wine Stop, a wine shop & tasting bar on a quiet stretch of Santa Fe; every bottle in the place is personally sourced by its friendly proprietor, in volumes that make the price point très raisonnable…. The shop's petite tasting area features $5 pours from 11:00 AM-8:30 PM every Friday, all served without pretense & plenty of insider knowledge. No other place in the city carries their domestic or imported picks, so you're guaranteed to come off learned at your next grown-up dinner party invite." 5everyday

"Owner Alvaro Cardenas is AMAZING. I needed to send a digital gift card to someone in LA and Alvaro was patient + kind enough to work with me to get the e-gift card out. The recipient is thrilled and it wouldn't have happened without the exceptional customer service provided by Mr. Cardenas. Highly recommend Wine Stop DTLA and will be using the shop for all my LA-based wine gifting needs." Google.com

"You know when you got something good, something great, but it's TOO good, TOO great, to the point where you almost don't want everyone to know about it? That's Wine Stop to me. And that's why I struggle over writing this review. I got introduced to Wine Stop almost 2 years ago and what seemed like an eclectic destination for entrepreneurs, artists, smugglers, dancers, models, photographers, recovering pickup artists, fashion designers, filmmakers, general bon vivants, and Taiwanese people has become a 2nd home whenever I'm in LA... which is sometimes every week."

"Neighbourhood guide: Los Angeles

Round off your shopping spree at Wine Stop, a boutique wine shop with a vineyard-to-table concept serving bottles from some of the best independent producers. If you're not sure what to buy, don't worry: there's a tasting bar at the back of the shop where you can take your time." - Monocle, December 2019/January 2020
