Great selection of Californian wines, and staff are super knowledgeable and help you choose something you like. What we love is the FOOD - great angus beef sliders, garlic fries (with truffle mayo/tomato chutney) and the toasted cheese sandwich with tomato soup is fantastic - apples inside the sandwich give a nice acidity. We travel all the way from Kowloon side just to eat this food! Only complaint is the seating by the roadside - there are 3 tables here, and if you are seated at these tables you can barely hear your companions and it just spoils the atmosphere of the wine bar. Try to get a seat inside and you will love it.

The restaurant/bar is a sampling place (only serving Californian wines). When you arrive you get a card and use this to buy wine in various quantities in the disposers around the walls. There is a good selection of wines and a menu of very tasty food (also Californian) to match it. Actually, the pairings are suggested on the iPad you use to read the menu. The homemade fries with truffle mayo are worth a visit alone. Great for an after work or just a low-key meal.

Best –Herb-tossed fries with truffle mayo

Good – Wine
Not so good – Nothing

Being a father and away from home I decided to go have a drink in the Soho area. Went into California Vintage and they were having a special wine selection for fathers day. The wines were an eclectic range of wines, apparently one of the owners fathers day selections. I stayed way to long, because I ate as much food as I did drink wine. Great staff and will make this a must stop everytime in HK.

Went back for a boozy wee lunch whilst back in HK for a few days. It was better than I remembered. Love this place amid all the impersonal food stops in HK. Chers to the next time!
