“Left a lot to be desired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

New addition to South Haven. To make it, the establishment will need to really up the quality of wines offered. A larger city visitor will be disappointed at the wine selection. The atmosphere is kind of neat, pine ceilings, nice seating, but the main draw - the wine - was mainly from Chile and not recognizable. There is beer and a full service bar. The concept seemed to be lacking a super star wine selection but maybe that's not the point of the business plan.

“I wanted a glass of wine and they had wine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Finding good drink and food can be a challenge in this area. We experienced 'authentic mexican' served on flour shells with cheddar cheese... However, we were so happy to find this spot to enjoy a decent glass of wine for such reasonable prices!
The interior is snug, but a good escape from summer heat.

“Average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013 via mobile

Tiny boring wine bar. Not bad to stop and grab a quick drink but nothing special. It offers no view of anything south haven has to offer. Maybe If the location was better they might be busier. You will be bored to death halfway through your glass of wine! There are many better places to spend your $$.

“Very nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

My girlfriends and I were here for a weekend and stopped in for some wine. This place was awesome. The owner was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The artwork was beautiful as well. Will definitely stop here again on my next trip to South Haven!

“Great new addition to South Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

Very nice little wine bar. Had some trouble opening but now it is a dont miss for a relaxing glass of wine. Owners nice as many small places in South Haven they may be serving your drinks. Nicely decorated and set up for conversation!
