The Wine Spot in Eureka, Where Old Friends go to meet New Ones
While I have a decent knowledge of wine, sometimes wine tasting and wine bars seem like a gathering of hoity-toity people in uninspiring intellectual discussions. Frankly, it was an intimidating thought to me, but not at the Wine Spot located at 234 F Street. The Wine Spot is an inviting place – even for people who drink wine on occasion. I am a Newcastle Ale guy myself but I would recommend this place to others who want to broaden their experience and give wine a try.
Generally, I want to have fun and hang out with my friends. Thanks to my friend, Kathleen, I discovered the Wine Spot and I am now a regular customer. Thanks to the owners, Kat and Ron Combs, my knowledge of wine has increased and my palate has definitely expanded.
When you support the Wine Spot, you are benefitting more than just one local business. Kat and Ron have included other local businesses by displaying local art, having local musicians as entertainment, using Loleta Cheese and local salmon in their snack plates and offering local beers from Lost Coast, Mad River and Eel River as an option for non-wine drinkers. They also use organic juices and fruit from local stores for their specialty mimosas during their Sunday Champagne Brunch from 11 AM to 4 PM.
While the Wine Spot has a few international wines and some from Washington and Oregon wineries, most of their wines are from California. They have an extensive list of local wineries such as Briceland, Winnett, Elk Prairie, Riverbend Cellars, Old Growth Cellars, Moonstone Crossing, Bergeron Winery, Alpen Cellars and Joseph Jewell and these are all proudly displayed at the Wine Spot.
