Location and contact

Louie's Wine Dive is obsessed with really, really good grapes, creative gourmet comfort food and a fun, funky atmosphere to share them. We search all over the world to find our guests great wines. Many wines come from our relationships with smaller undiscovered vineyards, which offer a great taste and spectacular value to our guests.
