"With three locations across Los Angeles in the DTLA Arts District, Silverlake, and Echo Park, Wine Stop is a one-stop shop for ethically sourced wines. Each wine is sourced on-site and refrigerated throughout the entirety of the transportation process to ensure the quality of every bottle remains top-notch. The selection and the prices at Wine Stop DTLA are unmatched. With a mission of high quality and low prices at the forefront of the Wine Stop model, there is a bottle for every taste and every budget. Each month, Wine Stop DTLA also offers an array of tasting events. December's special tasting event is just $25 for three wines paired with three kinds of cheese served in the quaint storefront and is a great way to get a taste of Wine Stop DTLA."

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
