A Wine Adventure: Off The Vine in San Pedro
This past weekend we checked out a little wine bar in San Pedro that we had picked up a Living Social deal for recently. It is called "Off The Vine" and is located on 7th St. in Downtown San Pedro.
It is in a little theater district that reminded us of Retro Row in Long Beach (on a smaller scale).
We went early in the afternoon on Saturday, as you can see from the picture below we were the first ones there!
Our Living Social deal was for a small Meat and Cheese plate (which was simple, yet really good) and a Wine Tasting that included 6 different wines.
The tasting of the day was a red wine tasting –We aren’t normally big Red wine fans –but all of the wines we tried were good. It included wines from Chile and Portugal and even one from Croatia. We liked the Obsession Red Blend from California the best and got a bottle to take home.
This Living Social deal was a really good value –but the thing that would bring us back was the Flatbread that we ordered in addition to our deal. The Flatbread was made up of Havarti Cheese with Fig and Arugula and it was fantastic, in fact I’m craving it now just writing about it. The server was really nice and told us a little about each wine---(something you don’t always get at busier wine tastings).
So if you are in the San Pedro area and want a little wine getaway Off The Vine is the place to go.
Here is our version of the Havarti, Fig with Arugula flatbread..
I added a little drizzle of balsamic glaze to ours to give it just a little kick.. I'd say it turned out pretty darn good!!
