YOU shop for your wine?
We are creatures of habit
when we shop.most of us go to the same grocery store on the same day
to get what we need for the week. And, most of us buy our wine at the
store because it's there and it's convenient. The grocery chains also
same old every day wines that are mostly recognizable names.
On top of that, we have
chains offering 30-40% off if you buy six or more bottles. So, that
great, doesn't it? NOT !!!!
Along comes this great
little wine shop right in our own back yard called " Ventura Wine
". Started in 2001 by local Nick Fisher, this little store has
grown from a small location next to the DMV, to his current location on
Telephone. The store carries almost 1000 different wines with a heavy
on California wineries. The prices here are well below the supermarket
even after their so called discounts. Nick is
always looking for highly acclaimed and highly rated wines as well as
special deals that lure his customers into the store week after week.
knowledgeable staff is always there to inform the customers of the
greatest wine that "just came in".
In addition to the Ventura
location, Nick also has a store about 20 miles up the coast called
"Carpinteria Wine Co". Same great selection, same low prices.
The Ventura location is
also home to the fantastic eatery called " The Cave". Here you can
eat some of the finest food in Ventura, and taste several wine on the
wine machines which allows you to taste before you buy. Over 32 wines
always available to taste for a nominal fee. Chef Gary Daniels and his
always there to greet his guests. The Cave has won the Wine Spectator
"Award of Excellence" the last two years.
So, if you
don't buy your wines at VWC, you are spending wayyyyyy to much money on
McGrath St. #301
Carpinteria Ave #1
