Then I don't want to be right.
Yep, I'm talking about "Cru` a Wine Bar" at Watter's Creek.
Cru in general is a great place if you're into wine, but Watter's Creek Cru is simply the best.
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place. If you are into wine, even to the slightest, you gotta check this place out. Cru` is the Disney World of the wine world - seriously!
Offering a menu of flights that encompasses whites, reds, desserts, bubbles - with food to match, I might add - this place is my home-away-from-home. It's very cozy and perfect for a night of wine exploration.
I have never had a bad glass of wine there. The flight menus are changed out every week, switching it up and allowing you to try (for instance) the bubbly flight three weeks in a row and rarely have a repeat of a wine from the flight before.
And, talk about obscure varietals by the glass... If that floats your boat you will definitely dig this place, I mean, who doesn't want a little Agiorgitiko now and then just to keep your palate fresh?
The service is solicitous - yet not hovering, helpful - yet not know-it-all. Friendly and welcoming would be the catch-phrase for Cru`at Watter's Creek. Mostly, IMHO, due to the general manager - Steve Orozco.
Steve is a Master Sommelier and has been in the wine business all of his life - literally. Steve's father, Victor, is also a MS and is well-known in various wine-producing regions of Europe. The apple didn't fall far from the tree - or in this case, the grape didn't fall far from the vine. If Steve is on-premise at Cru` Watter's Creek, you're in for a spectacular wine experience. Trust me.
So, if you have a free afternoon, or evening, stop by and prepare to be dazzled. I was.
