The perks of being a member at Presqu'ile just grew exponentially with the opening of their new tasting room in Santa Maria. Calling it a "tasting room" seems like an understatement, as it's really more like a getaway where you can hang out all day long on their terraced lawn, play bocce ball, foosball or cool off in the wine cave.
The famous Winehound Wine Shop on Chapala street is relocating to La Cumbre Plaza in late September/early October. They’ll be nestled between See’s Candy and Chipotle at 3849 State Street, Suite I 163. We’re sad to see them leave their downtown location, but better parking and easier access will hopefully bring them more business.
From the Winehound Newsletter:
Dear Friend of the Winehound,
I’ve always dreamed of a world with unlimited parking…
While it’s always been energizing to be downtown near great restaurants, hotels and the general urban hubbub, we’ve been hunting for a new location that’s easier to find, has adjacent attractions and where you can park your vehicle without fear of the authorities gleefully leaving a $50 ticket under your windshield wiper.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be moving into La Cumbre Plaza this fall! The official address is 3849 State Street, Suite I 163. We’ll be on the strip of storefronts across from Macy’s, right between See’s Candy and Chipotle. We’ll be glad to make wine recommendations for chocolate truffles or your favorite burritos…
We’ll be in section 1E: just check out the upper right section of this map.
The ink is dry on the lease and the interior is receiving an attractive overhaul; soon (late September or early October), we’ll be trucking all of our vino to the new site and setting it all up again. We’ll have a few days of downtime during the relocation, but promise to keep everyone updated. Until then, it’ll be business as usual at good old 1221 Chapala.
We’ve already started hunting for some amazing deals for the grand opening, so please stay tuned as the Winehound goes uptown!
Bob, Victoria, Heather, Dennis and sometimes, Betty!
