nice place to get some regional wine in a casual atmosphere without immediately going "tourist". If you are not sure what kind of wine you want they will let you taste a few. and yes, they have a (very friendly and docile) dog around.... :)

Went in for a bubbly flight and charcuterie plate. They were very busy , but friendly and answered our questions . Bought some of their delicious munchies, but wine seemed a little pricey for the quality .
