Rhones in L.A.?

Recent job transfer has taken me from Chicago to L.A. Trying to figure out the wine shops around here and specifically looking for a great selection of Rhone wines. I've held off on loading up on 2010's so I wouldn't have to move them. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

The two best places...
Woodland Hills Wine Co
The Wine House

I like WHWC the best..

"Wally's" has an excellent selection of Rhone stuff.

There are a few "Total Wine & More" stores in the area. It's like the "Wal-Mart" of wine stores, but they always carry a good inventory.

K&L has a store in Hollywood.

If you do make it up to Paso you'll enjoy it. Try/visit....Booker, L'aventure, Linne Calodo, Tablas Creek, Epoch, Saxum, Villa Creek, Caliza...to name a few. There are many other quality wineries worth checking out. Salud!

Woodland Hills would be my first choice.

A couple of smaller places you might check out are Lincoln Fine Wines and LA Wine Co. Both are close to the beach, so they shouldn't be too far from you if you're in 90049 zip.

Mark Adams, who works with Justin Smith at Saxum, has his own place called Ledge. Not sure if they have a tasting room yet.


Stay thirsty my friends.
