The Wines!!
MARGERUM SYBARITE SAUVIGNON BLANC $22.99
The word SYBARITE is derived from Sybaris, an ancient Greek city in southeastern Italy noted for the luxurious, pleasure seeking behavior of many of its inhabitants. SYBARITES are people who have a fondness for sensuous luxury. This wine is crafted from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on the rolling hills of the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA at McGinley Vineyard, Grassini Vineyard, Star Lane Vineyard and Happy Canyon Vineyard. Slight gold hues, green tinged, bright and vibrant. Lifted perfume of grapefruit, honeyed quince, white flower blossom, toast, creamy lemon and some plantain, layered with a slight hint of gunflint and fruity Sauvignon.  Rich creamy and full with layers of pear, grapefruit, and passion fruit.

This wine is perfect to serve as an aperitif, we like it with shellfish and salads,
of course it works well with a selection of your favorite cheeses. 
Also good at the end of a meal as a refreshing alternative to sweet wines.


POPPY CHARDONNAY SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS $15.99
This focused, elegant Chardonnay’s aromas feature sweet golden apple, ripe citrus, tropical fruit and almond with touches of creamy yeast, vanilla and oak in the background. On the plate, the rich flavors are complemented by a light touch of toasty oak and refreshing citrus with mineral notes and bright acidity in the finish. 

MARGERUM M5 RED BLEND $34.99
 Margerum's Flagship wine.
39% Grenache 32% Syrah 15% Mourve`dre 7% Counoise 7% Cinsault
Alcohol: 14.5%

Color: Dark blue/black and red hues.
Aroma: Intoxicating wild red and blue brambleberry mix with an intriguing rusticity redolent of dried herbs Santa Barbara garrigue and roasted meats.
White and red tropical flowers weave throughout making this a very enticing and beguiling wine.
Palate: A complex combination of wild red berried fruit and spice are surrounded by a mouth coating and pleasing taste. The overlying presence of Grenache flavors initially brighten the palate, followed by a rich finish complete with hints of dark red/blue fruits, European chocolate and wonderfully sinister hints from the Syrah and earthy Mourve`dre.


SECRET SQUIRREL CABERNET COLUMBIA VALLEY $29.99
Dried fig, black cherry and cassis combine with dark aromas of violet, wet earth, wild herbs and incense. The wine is juicy and concentrated in texture,
showing rich flavors of blackberry reduction, bitter dark chocolate, tobacco and licorice.
Densely packed tannins and a graphite-like minerality create a plush, long-lasting finish. 


The Beers!!
OFFSHOOT VAJIA, 4 PACK CANS 16 oz. $15.99
Flavorful beers that are fresh, fun and a taste of sunny Southern California in a can.
Sure, we could talk hop profiles, malt bills, and yeast strains, and delicate food pairings -
but right now we'd rather just...relax and drink one.


ABITA MARDI GRAS BOCK, 6 pack 12 oz. $12.99
6.5% ABV
Abita Bock is brewed with pale, pilsner and caramel malts and German Perle hops.
This bock is similar to German maibocks with its rich malt flavor and full body.
A perfect choice during Carnival season in New Orleans.
