Downtown LA & Silver Lake

“Owned by Alvaro Cardenas, this humble wine shop started off in Downtown LA and recently opened a second location in Silver Lake, both of which sell some of the best and most affordable wines in the city. Some notable stand outs include Pronto, a rich lambrusco (his best seller) and Apiarum, a crispy but refreshing sauvignon. Most of the bottles here are under $20 and Cardenas, who worked for JK Imports for over 20 years, stocks a consistently stellar selection that makes it fun to experiment with new labels. Every wine at this shop is personally selected by Cardenas who goes to each vineyard, to ensure quality.”

07/21/2021: LAist.com "When I want  tasty, affordable wines (I'm talking $20 and under/bottle), I head to Wine Stop in the Arts District. If you spot a black bottle with a red "Pronto" label, snap up a few. This bold Italian Lambrusco Secco sells out quickly." - Cesar Hernandez, LAist
