The staff at Terroir is so friendly and helpful that you won't feel like an ignoramus just because you don't know what terroir or oenophile mean. (So, don't be afraid to ask!) This laid-back wine spot has events all week long, such as Tasting Night Thursdays, where you might have a night of just Paso Robles Zinfandels or just Washington Reds, and Open Mic Wednesdays, where you can voice your concerns about global warming's effect on the grape crop, or you can shout Terroir's praises. Terroir offers 40-50 wines by the glass, which you can accompany with any number of delicious appetizers, such as Cognac-Flavored Duck Pate or the Fromage Plate. The social atmosphere created at the large rectangular bar makes this place very cozy, and you can even order from a large selection of beer if wine isn't your thing! They also offer wine storage consultations and private tastings. Don't forget to check out the back patio, too.
