After a delicious dinner at Viet Noodle Bar, my friend and I were craving some wine and cheese. We came upon a “Wine Bar” sign on a wine barrel down the street. It lead us to a wine store at a mini mall called 55 Degree Wine. At the back of the store is a stairway that lead you down to the dungeon cellar.
The descend down to dim but cozy cellar feels GREAT! It’s like finding a hidden spot.
Their wine menu features four types of inexpensive flight (range from $16.50 to $28), which you can also order an individual glass from. I got the World of Terredavino flight and tried three red wine that’s more on the dry side and my friend tried the white wine flight (love the Ciu Ciu). You can get cheese plate and small dishes to accompanied your wine tasting experience. There’re complimentary help-yourself nuts and dried fruits to nibble on.
Good wine, good cheese and mellow atmosphere, this place is a great for conversations and romantic dates. The staffs are very friendly and knowledgeable. There’s also a private room where you can host a party. When we surfaced back on the ground floor, the wine we just have are featured conveniently at the cashier so you can buy your favorites on your way out. What a lovely neighborhood gem!
