Do not buy from them... They sent me a less expensive vintage wine than I ordered.... Never called to let me know this... Then made it a painful to return the wine.

Tom We responded to our mistake as soon as physically possible. Here is a timeline of the transaction: - your online order came in at 8:20 PM on November 20. - we emailed you on November 21 that your wine was ready to ship. - we shipped your order overnight on November 21 but shipped the incorrect vintage (the supplier...

Superb place to taste wines from around the world -- and from the hundreds of nearby wineries. Literally hundreds available by the single glass, served by extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff. And very good prices. The genial husband-wife owners are competitive and makes sure they offer good value and prices.

We stopped in here to get away from the Pier madness and just loved the place. We had a very knowledgeable man help us pick a bottle of wine. We also stayed and had a glass of wine. Nice place.

We have been to Tastes of the Valleys several times, and are finally writing a review. It's really nice. They have many wines on tap and will open anything if you drink some there. In the past we've had some wonderful local zin with cheese and crackers. This time we went for dessert wine, so they opened a bottle of... More

Taste of the Valleys continues to live up to it's status as an amazing wine bar. Their incredible selection and wine-smart staff are why the bar has become my "go to" when I need that special bottle. I was recently on the hunt for a special gift. I was looking for an older vintage from a small production winery in... More

This is my go to place in the area to try new wines and purchase them at very good prices. The owner and staff are extremely helpful and really know their stuff. It's a great place to go to find small production wines not available at the grocery stores. Also a very comfortable place to enjoy a glass or two!

We stopped in and enjoyed a glass of delicious Barbera, then bought 2 bottles to go. The girls are friendly and knowledgable. They have quite a few bottles open for tasting on enigmatic type machines and will open almost anything if you will commit to buying a glass. Pleasant venue with little retail except for wines. Flights, bottles & by... More

My husband and I wondered in looking to buy a bottle of wine, not realizing it was also a tasting room. The gentleman behind the counter was so friendly, inviting and no pressure that we honestly decided to do a tasting just to pick his brain. It was probably the most informative tasting I have ever been too. He not... More

This is a tasting bar and wine shop. It is casual and the staff/owners can point out wines that are from small wineries that must normally be purchased directly from wineries. Then tastings are interesting and focus on wines from the region. Worth a stop.
