Wine bars have been booming in California for decades, but they’ve largely been ignored by the rest of the industry, where they’re mostly limited to upscale boutiques.
The California Wine Review’s new list shows just how far the pendulum is swinging.
We asked wine lovers for their take on the best wine bars, as well as some of their favorite spots to drink in the Golden State.
The most surprising thing to us was how many of these bars have gotten better over time.
That’s what surprised us the most.
There are so many bars out there, and I think that it’s kind of a good thing that people are still enjoying them.
It’s kind in the public’s interest.
They can get better every time, and that’s a positive thing.
