Great wine & appetizers

Love going here for girls' night out. Staff is super-friendly and knowledgable. Appetizers, sandwiches and salads are delicious. Cheese plates are tasty, but very small. That is the only area for improvement.

Outstanding Wines and Spirits are the mainstay of this casual and relaxing wine bar. Small plates are well done and complement the experience quite well. Tastefully done.

Our Ameriprise Financial Planners sponsored the event. We, as a group sampled and then blended three red wines. After much experimenting, we perfected our sample, made a label, and submitted our creation. We did not win, but had a heck of a time! Their wine choices were excellent. The appetizers served were tasty and filling. Perfect place to wine down... More

We found this place while heading to the coffee shop next door. The wine list is short, but the wines we tried were very good. We also ordered some small appetizers which were fine, not great but not bad either. Overall we had a good experience, there is a full bar if someone wants something else than wine. The music...

Winedown is one of the hidden treasures in West Reading. They have a nice selection of wine and a tapas menu should you want something to eat while enjoying your wine. They do have a full bar should you be in the mood for something other than a glass of wine. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. A place you... More

If you like a nice glass of wine or two or three in a friendly bar where you can have a nice conversation without loud music or a loud TV, this is the place for you.

Sorry dme625, we pride ourselves on our quaint and comfortable restaurant. We are sorry that you did not find a Pinot Grigio on the list, but we do have seven dry white wines that you could have picked from. Next time, please ask to see the wine specialist on staff to help you choose your wines better to your liking.... More
