Wine Director Jannae Lizza has put together a list of mostly small, independent producers at near-retail prices. A seasonal “Love Page” offers a glimpse at what staff are drinking now with the restaurant’s California cuisine that’s sourced locally and sustainably.
From The Sommelier: “Customers actually want to drink domestic Syrah again! We’ve always been a fan of Syrah, in fact it’s the first page of our wine list. Talking a guest into trying a Syrah was another story, until recently. We are so fortunate to have some amazingly talented Syrah producers in California—Pax, Arnot Roberts, Jolie Laide, Enfield—and it’s been a real pleasure to introduce guests to our ‘friends’. Hopefully this trend is here to stay!” —Jannae Lizza, Passionfish
