Wine Adventures with the $2 Wine Connoisseurs: The Cellar in San Clemente

Once a year we head down to San Clemente for a fun getaway.  We love sitting on the balcony enjoying a glass of wine and pizza from the pizza place right next to the pier.  San Clemente is a really cool little Beach community with a great main street for shopping and dining.   This year we decided to hit up a fun little Wine Bar as well and now have an even better reason to look forward to our yearly trip.

The Cellar is  located on Avenida Del Mar, the main street that leads down to the beach.  It was a fun little Wine and Cheese bar that had great wines and FANTASTIC food.  I would advise getting there a little early because the place was packed when we arrived on a Friday night. We settled in at a spot at the piano listening to the entertainment and enjoying a Wine Flight and some really good appetizers.  We may have a new tradition for our yearly trip.

Whipped Goat Cheese Crostini's topped with preserves and grapes YUM!! 

The Cellar offers up a swanky chic kind of vibe. The live piano entertainment is a big plus. 
The food is excellent and overall this place is exactly what we enjoy most about a good wine bar. 
Just wish it was a little closer to home so we could visit more often!!

This was painted on the wall in the womens restroom!! 

If you get a chance to visit, let us know what you thought of your experience. We'd love to hear from you!! 

And for your final photo here is one last look at just a partial assortment of what the Cheese shop has to offer.

  1. My husband and I love The Cellar! We have two small children so we don't get there as much as we like, but the food and wine selection is amazing! We love the atmosphere and my husband, who is equally a beer lover, thinks they have a great selection of beer too (good microbrews he says)!
