Whole Foods Wine Bar
I checkout out the new Whole Foods on Lincoln Blvd in Venice. I love these newer Whole Foods markets. There is a lot of emphasis on prepared, ready to eat foods. Every time I have been to this one, it is a bit of a scene outside with diners enjoying a meal, or just some coffee. On this visit, my friend and I paid a visit to the tapas bar. Nestled in the wine section, they have a vinoteque loaded with wine to taste by the 2 oz. pour (they have a tasting license, so they may only serve 2oz pours rather than full glasses or whole bottles). We shared a red flight ($12.990 and a white flight ($11.99), along with the usual wine accompaniments of cheese meats and nuts ($6.99-9.99), all of which are available for purchase in their respective departments.
Not necessarily the cheapest wine deal in town, but it is fun to take a break during your shopping on a (somewhat) lazy Sunday afternoon, as we did, to sample and enjoy some interesting wines and meats.
