The wine tastings on Fridays at the San Clemente Wine Company on Avenida Del Mar. Great, friendly wine store. We got some good recommendations and had a good time at the wine tasting. Daily (after 2pm) it is $10 to taste four wines. They have specials on their website (I have absolutely no affiliation with them-just felt they were great to us and checked it out because we would like to go back). They have a great little tasting room in the back. On Fridays, there is a rep from the winery, 7 tastes for $15 and grapes, crackers and cheese. I loved it! Small concern...I was overcharged when I ordered a full glass of wine at the tasting (it should have been $8 and I was charged $18) but I didn't notice it until late and I am sure it was just that the cashier misread our check. The wine was a Tempranillo by Matchbook (I have since discovered)...Go, and enjoy...they are very nice.
While you are there, run across the street to Oliver's. Olive oil and basalmic vinegars...wonderful and outrageous flavors. Similarly helpful and friendly.
