Our staff is focused on providing you with a great experience, so please ask about our wines and if a bottle is open, we will happily let you sample. We also have an ample selection of bottled beers and make a great cappuccino or latte! LIVE MUSIC!!.... including Jazz, Blues, & Motown can be heard every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

“Awesome wine bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

This is a wonderful place to visit. The owners, Ruth & Bob, are very welcoming. My husband & I felt so comfortable and enjoyed trying Ruth's suggestions on wine. This will become one of my favorite places to hang out and meet new friends. If you have not tried this place...you are missing out on one of Punta Gorda's gems!

“Turn your neck and look for the orange House in Punta Gorda !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is the place Punta Gorda needed. Nice, small with a lot of personality of the owner, Ruth and Bob. Sure, not forget Karry (spell ?). The wine list, for those are the "wine connnaisseur" can have a little from here and there.
The food is light and goes well with the wine and the tasty Cremont.
A wonderful place to meet friends or meet new once.

“Great wine list and wicked good tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

The title sums it up, food and drink-wise, but the greatest assets are Ruth and Bob. They are the owners and are wonderful people. Ruth is very knowledgeable about her wines and Bob turns ot wonderful small plates of food. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and we can hardly wait for them to reopen after their vacation. That will be on the 17th of September and I will do my best to return on that date.

“fantastic place for an evening out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

This place has hit a home run. Beautiful and meticulously designed space is so welcoming when you walk in, you instantly relax. Outstanding wine list with something to satisfy every palate. A varied menu of small plates that very nicely compliment their wines...order multiple items and keep trying them with your wine...you'll discover new flavor profiles you weren't expecting. What truly makes this place special are the owners, Bob and Ruth. These people are genuinely warm and welcoming and create an atmosphere that you just don't want to leave. Thank you for providing us with a finely polished wine and tapas bar and gracious hospitality.
