It takes confidence to open a wine bar in California's Wine Country that specializes exclusively in Mediterranean wines. Like, no California wines at all. :-0 However, Bergamot Alley hits it out of the ballpark and does it with gusto, giving locals and others for whom regional wine is familiar a taste of something different. Drawing upon the owner's professional experience both as a sommelier and assistant winemaker, Bergamot Alley offers guests a select tour through France, Italy and Greece, as well as the opportunity to bring a bottle home. A good variety Microbrews and small bites are also available.
Bergamot Alley's decor and vibe is anything but staid. With its vinyl collection, movie nights and music, really it's a place to hang out and have fun with the great people you brought with you or the great people you meet there. Did I mention the warm and friendly service? Think of it as being invited to a casual party at a friend's house, except the down to earth host has an encyclopedic knowledge of wine and wants you to have a great time while sipping just.the.right.one. That's Bergamot Alley.
