The Squad Is Coming For You, 8 is Enough, Follow the Liter, and Hello Coho
Welcome to the 8th installment of "WINE PARAPHERNALIA THAT MAKES US
UNCOMFORTABLE AND/OR SCARED" (or W.P.T.M.U.U.A.O.S. for short)
Not sure how to gussy up that Christmas table this year? How about the nightmarish gingerbread squad, frozen in the act of grabbing YOUR booze? Perfect! And when you turn out the lights they'll reanimate, get drunk, enter your bedroom and steal your breath. And yes, a group of gingerbread men is technically called a "squad" as in "please make that squad of gingerbread men burn in hell forever."
8 IS ENOUGH
To all of you regulars who have patiently waited for us to add seating over the years, your will has been done. Two tables and 8 more seats have been installed at the front window with plenty of room for a Brownstone pizza or that ridiculous meyer lemon yogurt cake from Four Cafe. Both restaurants will take your order and then serve you at your table in CoWineCo.
Special Events for June!
Hello, Coho. Get into my tummy.
The Coho Russian River Pinot Noir is one of the better pinots for the money from our fine state so we decided to taste the rest of the Coho lineup and they did not dissapoint. So when we heard winemaker/owner would be visiting LA, we snatched up a date. Come meet winemaker Gary Lipp and taste one of the finer red flights ever poured in our store.

Just in time for our first sweltering weekend, the Murelhas Vinho Verde Rose swoops in like some kind of pink superman (made of alcohol and bubbles and escapism). We're also celebrating the return of the Capote Velho Tinto, that Portuguese wine we used to get in 5 liter boxes until we found out the hard way that the packaging leaked. All were recalled, but this liter bottle is the same juice sans bag-in-a-box. And to continue on the bigger-is-better bandwagon, a liter of Gruner Veltliner from Etz to continue to cool you down while you ponder the purchase of a window A/C unit just when the prices are jacked up at your local Lowes Depot.
