Just wish that they would wait on you on outdoor patio. The other day went in to do a wine tasting and waiter told us we had to come in to place our orders and pick up--why bother with a patio then? Could be a fun place to hang out.

Nice selection of wines in a cozy atmosphere. The man running it could use a lesson in customer service - was brusque and not very friendly. Expected a better temperament for a bar with 6 stools.
Food is soup that tastes like it's from a can and an assortment of cheeses from Costco.
The wine tasting is pricey.

A nice little wine shop in the middle of Idyllwild. Good selection of wines and beers and the women running the tasting were awesome. The price for the tasting was a bit steep.

This is warm and cozy "cheerie" bistro is a plus for Idyllwild. We love to visit every time we go to Idyllwild. It's usually our first stop for a glass of wine or more with their cheese and fruit plates. They have a good selection of cheese that complement the wine. My favorite, the jalapeño jelly with fruit that I smere on the crackers, Oh Boy!! They serve not just so so crackers but unique ones that also go well with the wine, cheese and fruit. They are planning to have Paninis soon. People are friendly, chatty and we always meet a few new interesting people who stop by for a glass of the cheerie. They also have beer so after our "big hikes" we'll stop in for a refresher. The popularity of this place has grown a lot over the past few years and we hope them much success so they stay in Idyllwild.

Locals hang out here on Friday night almost like a great Happy Hour place. Wines are fun. Tastings are reasonably priced. People who work there are fun. And the cheese plates and snacks are delicious. We go to the Wine Shoppe every time we go to Idyllwild. Love it!
