Enough with the stuffiness and pretension — we strongly believe that wine should not be intimidating.

Tasting gelato is fun. Trying out new restaurants is fun. And for some reason, beer got dubbed the “fun” drink. No matter what anyone says, wine can be just as fun — the trick is to enjoy it in the right atmosphere.

Here at Tannins, we work hard to cultivate a warm, welcoming setting where anyone can enjoy wine. Whether you’re a seasoned sommelier or you’ve never tried wine in your life, we’d love for you to stop by. We offer fine wines for the most discerning palate, entry-level bottles for the complete beginner, and choices for everyone in between.

We’ve got other fun stuff, too — cheese, chocolate, and yes, beer. Quite a bit of beer. See? We don’t discriminate. And we wear smiles, not berets.
