Solano Cellars Wine Bar
In an area known for wineries and wine bars, Solano Cellars is a Mecca for Bay Area oenophiles who sit at the imposing wood bar and sample a dazzling array of wines from around the world. A staff of refreshingly unpretentious wine experts can guide you through the selection and help you find just the vintage you were looking for. The shop attached is tiny, but what they do not have on display can be fetched from the seemingly bottomless wine cellar. To enhance the wine, an ever-changing appetizer and dessert menu, designed with wine in mind, is offered. There is a strict prohibition on cell phones.
I'm not a fan of the modern wine bar - fancy, modern, and cold. Solano Cellars, on the other hand, reminds me of a typical enoteca in the old country (specifically, Italy). The decor is quaint, the staff is knowledgeable and extremely friendly, and the wine bar is a the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine. It is also the only bar I've ever been to in which I have not only spoken to my fellow patrons but actually struck up friendships. Bravo!
