“interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

With our hotel stay we got a voucher for a $10 wine tasting and 15% off dinner. So we went and found a place that is a little different from most other wine tasting places where you only select between wines of one or two wineries. At the Apres you can actually taste wines from all over the world, Australia, Europe, South, and North America. The "wine vending machine" was a first for us, but the lady at the bar gave us a detailed instruction how to use it and it worked well for us. There was a discovery of a blended wine which we then ordered as a full bottle and enjoyed with our dinner. The food was good, nothing fancy, and reasonably priced.

“Our first visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We were in Tahoe for vacation, and trying to find a little time away from the kids. We sampled several wines from the bar, and ate a cheese plate. The wine tasting was fun, and the cheese plate was good. The girl behind the bar was personable, and we had a nice conversation with her. We will go back again before we leave! It was fun.

“Great Wines - Greater Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

You will melt into your chair when you taste the truffle butter. You may rejoice out loud when you eat the artichoke dip.

They have the most by-the-glass wines I've found around the area and are very knowledable about them. They also have great wine tastings and pairing nights. We enjoyed the Tuesday night pairings and the Sunday tasting. We'll be back for sure.

The store also has adorable wine-themed shirts. We loved the little hat and scarf for your wine bottle that we got to decorate with, too.

“Unique wine tasting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

When you approach the building within the strip mall, you expect a wine shop but this is so much more. You certainly can grab a bottle of wine, but there's also an option to put some cash on a card and go taste the wines from several different wine carousels. It's great fun, but be careful as your tastings can add up fast. We also had the best meat/cheese plate that I've ever had - high quality and generous. The best part is that the staff is very knowledgable and we got some excellent wine recommendations. We ended up buying two fantastic bottles of Zinfandel from a local winery - too small for distribution. While not a daily stop, we did visit three times during our stay in South Tahoe.
