Pali Wine Co. opens tasting room in San Diego’s Little Italy
(Lompoc, CA; Oct. 14, 2016)—Pali Wine Co., a producer of premium, appellation-specific and vineyard-designate wines from California and Oregon, will open a tasting room in San Diego’s Little Italy district located at 2130 India Street. The tasting room features Pali’s diverse lineup of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines, as well as those from its sister label, Tower 15, featuring Rhone and Bordeaux varieties grown in the Central Coast. Additionally, a rotating selection of eight “fresh” wines, blended straight from the barrel to keg, are available for tasting or for carry-out by growler. The tasting room will soft open on October 19, with grand opening festivities scheduled for the weekend of November 5, 2016.
The venue’s urban setting caters to those in search of the perfect wine to take to dinner, or as a destination for enjoying wines by the glass or bottle. The main tasting room features an eye catching twenty-foot long bar. Guests may also relax in the wine lounge or on the open-air balcony overlooking Little Italy. A small winery production and barrel room, used to ferment local grapes, is available for private events and meetings.
To accompany the wines, Pali will offer a flavorful, creative small-plate menu using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced produce whenever possible. Menu items include a charcuterie board with rotating cheeses, meats and seasonal fruits; herb and citrus marinated olives; and a savory, creamy whipped cheese with fresh herbs and a baguette.
The San Diego tasting room will be Pali’s third tasting room, following venues in Lompoc and downtown Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone. “San Diego’s Little Italy has a vibrant culture and dining scene, similar to Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, where we’ve learned an artisan winery like Pali can thrive,” says co-founder Tim Perr. “In a city which has become world-famous for premium craft beer, we’re pleased to offer our wines as an alternative.”
Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.; Fridays through Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 pm. In the coming weeks Pali plans to expand its hours, and will open daily at 12:00 p.m. for lunch service. Tasting flights are $15 and include five selections. Wines may also be ordered by the glass ($8-$15), or by the bottle ($25-$60).
