StarTribune wine blogger, Bill Ward, spills the beans on the coolness of the Riverview Wine Bar (and Spill the Wine on Washington Ave downtown) in his column today.
RIVERVIEW WINE BAR AND CAFE
The wines: The broadest, most eclectic by-the-glass list in town, offering up to a dozen cleverly matched four-wine flights and 73 wines by the glass. The pours are generous, but those who like to swirl their wine are out of luck with the squat glasses. On Wednesdays and Sundays, customers can create their own flights, perhaps the most alluring wine deal in town.
The grub: In keeping with an eatery across the street from the Mother Earth Gardens store, the menu is veggie-heavy and ensconced in the fresh-local-seasonal-organic mode. The Ã¼ber-thin-crusted pizzas are yumminess incarnate, the daily soup-and-sandwich combo always worth checking out.
I like this line from Bill’s blog this past Saturday:
If someone is making you feel dumb about wine, thatâ€™s their problem, not yours.
I’ll drink to that.
