Places to drink wine in South Lake Tahoe
One of my favorite places to relax in Tahoe South is Apres Wine Co. Owners JP and Barb have been wine connoisseurs for decades and their knowledge and enthusiasm for all things grape is unmatched. JP has provided me with many a full wine glass to ease my worries away and a kind ear when I need it. I love Apres for many reasons but most of all because the atmosphere is cozy, the owners are wonderful, the pours generous and the food fantastic.
One of the most enjoyable events is their theme wine tastings, held every week on Tuesday nights. This past Tuesday focused on champagne and sparkling wine. The Tuesday night tastings feature a set tasting course with food pairings from the kitchen and explanations of each wine in the tasting and the area and soil they come from.
Upcoming Tasting Tuesday
- Napa vs. Sonoma - Feb 21 @ 6PM, $25
- Ribs 'n Zin - Feb 28 @ 6PM, $25
Other fun upcoming events include their Valentine's Day Dinner which features four courses with four wine pairs ($59.99) and for a more relaxed wine tasting course, Sunday Sippers.
Join JP at Apres every Sunday as he introduces new and repeat sippers to a tantalizing selection of six wines. JP provides a comprehensive review of the grapes and appellations during his taste tour, identifying the subtle differences for sippers seated around the wine bar for only $10 every Sunday at 5:00 PM.
There's a reason why Apres Wine Bar was voted “Best Place for a Glass of Wine” in Tahoe! Stop in and check it out for yourself!
