"TASTE"-ing at Wine House...one more thing in LA made ULTRA-accessable

Though not at the top of my lists for wine shops in LA (Wally's you know you have my love), I will say that this freaking rocks the Casbah. As just mentioned in today's post, we just came from Santa Ynez for our 5 year anniversary and wine tasting. When I opened my mail today low and behold I see this! Wine House has gotten their own automated wine tasting area. Think Intellegentsia for wine lovers. I am so going over there to sample the tastings. Me and Celeste's wine tastes have expanded since this weekend and this is the perfect way to add to it. Here's how it reads:

Forget Wally's, I find that place too snooty, hit up Wine Expo on Santa Monica. Terrific selection and service at really good prices.

My love is with Wally's cause I've only dealt with a couple of people at Wally's so far and they've been so cool with me and Celeste. I'll give your place a try to see the difference but Wally's has been nothing but friendly to me oh and not to mention the fact that Jenny there cheese girl is the best and super knowledgeable about cheese and wine in general.
