Finally!It has taken us two months of programming and endless data entry but we are excited to say our wine lists have now gone virtual!
YES, our wine list, wine events, dessert wines, late night menu are all via ipad with the ability to search by flavor profile such as "butter bomb whites", "cult classics", "library wines" and "wines under $30" or one can simply search by region, grape or country. this above all allows us to go even more GREEN and stop printing 15 copies of wine lists every few days but it also allows us to update our list by the click of a button or give you our personal take on all of our wines.
Come check it out!
Yes, there are security sensors so they do not walk down the street to your house :)
