"'All things to all people' is the motto here," says General Manager, JB Severin. Whether you’re looking to spend $8 or $800, Winehouse has options—start off in their Enomatic Room to sample before you buy, then head out and peruse every wine-producing region of the world throughout the store. There are also two private rooms—under $200 and over—housing old and hard to find wines (holiday gift alert!) and a selection of craft bottled and canned beers, all chilled.
Good For: Experience a complete wine and food sit down at Upstairs 2, the store's upper-level restaurant serving small plates paired with 45+ wines available for tasting. Bonus: Winehouse also offers an array of classes and the prestigious WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) certification courses.
In & Out Factor: Located just off the 405, there's free parking on the upper-level lot.
TOLA pick: Dig around in the Italian section for gems like 2007 Castello della Paneretta Chianti Classico Riserva ($26.99) to pair with anything cranberry (we love it with cranberry stuffing).
