“Great place for a glass or 2”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

I came to Valencia with my husband who was in the area on business, there are 2 wine bars in the town centre and this one is best by far. The owner Guy along with his daughter Alexis and manager David made us feel very welcome on our 3 visits. Nothing was too much trouble for them offering a taste before you buy and pouring a very generous glass full. The choice of good American wine was a delight, we only seem to get the mass produced cheap stuff in the UK. I particularly liked the merlot from the Joyce vineyard, and have found a supplier here in the UK.
The menu is quite small but with something for everyone. We had a fantastic mixed sharing plate of meats and cheeses which came with crackers. We prefer bread and olive oil with this type of food and when we mentioned this to Alexis she brought bread and 2 types of oil, followed by David with balsamic vinegar. Just fantastic service all round, more like European service, relaxed and unhurried, much better than the rush rush rush service which the USA seems to think is good!

“Just too Expensive and Offers Too Little”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

My wife and I went to the Valencia Wine Company at the recommendation of a family member. While it was a bit nice and curious, it was over-priced, I wasn't sure the man (who I think was the owner) really cared about us as he served us, or if he cared more for his business and getting things done and organized. At times we felt forgotten. The food offerings were, honestly, to our way of thinking, pathetic, and WAY over-priced. The wine was good, but again, for the sampler that we ordered, it was way over-priced. I haven't been back and I doubt that I would ever suggest going back. It just costs too much, for too little.

“They are always rude and do not care for their customers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011 via mobile

Every time we have been in there it takes forever to get a glass of wine. When you finally do they are so rude that you want to leave. Wine 661 is so much nicer and Tanya and Tony know you by name.

“After several years will still never go back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

We used to like the wines that the owner brought into the store and would purchase wine regularly. On the last occasion, we were enjoying a quiet romantic time together when a party of about 6 people came in. The owner came to our table, picked up our drinks, walked across the room with them, set them on another table and said, "You will sit here". We told him "No we will not". When he insisted, I said, "No, we will go sit at All Corked Up". We left our drinks, went to "All Corked Up", and have never been back. This owner with a french accent needs a lesson in manners.
