We got a tip about this wine bar in Capitola that we had to check out. We're not big wine drinkers but we still drink wine and we wanted to know what this place had to offer.
The place wasn't packed for a Tuesday night but it wasn't dead either. I think this place has a chic magnet because most of the crowd was women. Our kind of crowd.
A jazz band played in the background setting the mood right for an easy-going comfortable setting. We sat down at the bar and told the bartender we were novices when it came to wine. He opened a bottle and poured us two samples of some red wine. We were both surprised with how fruity and sweet the wine was. It was a brilliant glass of wine and oh so tasty. We had a casual conversation with the bartender, I think he was one of the owners too, but he was more interested with a lady at the bar.
We tried another glass of wine, but it didn't match up to the first glass. We were moved by the jazz and slowly sipped our beverages and enjoyed the sites. We were impressed with the selection and the knowledge of wine at the Cava Wine Bar.
This place is a true gem nestled in Capitola village catering to a more sophisticated cliental. If you're in Capitola we recommend steering clear of the normal tourists bars and taste a flare of genius at the Cava Wine Bar.
