Vino Vino, San Jose

Vino Vino is an amazing find in San Pedro Square Market in downtown San Jose. This tiny, unpretentious wine bar should be the model for the locavore wine lover. I’ve lived in the Bay Area coming up on nine years now and I cannot ever recall encountering a wine list that had more labels from Morgan Hill than Sonoma; or Livermore than Napa. That is until we arrived here. This is a revolution in the meaning of terroir.

The place is tiny and cozy. It does have a sort of “wine dive bar” vibe, just like General Manager Morgan Klee was quoted in the Mercury News, though in a good way. They’ve a full menu of mainly bistro fare. We loved their huge wine on tap selection but were sold on their elegantly spare ideal: drink locally. Vino Vino is worth a look.

Our family visited San Jose last spring and absolutely loved it there. Next time we go west, which is every couple of years since my husband is from LA, we’ll make it a point to check out Vino Vino. Thanks, too, for listing me on your blog roll. My day is made!
