Welcome to V Wine Room!
V first opened its doors on February 9, 2013. The concept for V was to be a true tasting room and vinoteca like those found in California wine country, New York City and European wine bars; and therefore, unlike any other space in West Hollywood or the LA area. Our mission is to bring boutique California wines and craft beer to Los Angeles, to offer an extensive list of wines by-the-glass, provide wine flights and a wine education in a relaxed atmosphere for people to enjoy with friends and family.
V is housed in a historic building, which served as a library to the unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, known as Sherman, from 1929-1941. Before this, Charlie Chaplin originated the space as an actors studio. Since, the building has been used for a variety of retail activities after the 1940’s until becoming vacant in the late 2000s.
Founder Michael “Mikey” Consbruck wanted to revive the history of the building when designing the space, which is why you see bookshelves housing wine, books, dark library inspired furniture, a marble bar and vanities much like a 30’s checkout desk in a New York public library, vintage styled lighting and book wallpaper throughout. A quick glance through the room will reveal a refurbished card catalogue which houses guest’s “library cards.” Make sure to ask your wine specialist for your own card.
V is proud to represent very small producers from California. There are over 4,000 wineries in California, many of which produce 2,500 cases of wine or less for the entire year. Some of these small producers don’t even have a tasting room and rely on their wine club almost exclusively for sales. V acts as an extension of these wineries for our guests to taste, learn and experience some of California’s best. We also have a small selection of unique international wines that we preview on Tuesdays as a fun change of pace. In addition to the wines, V has put together a revolving collection of California craft beer, cheeses from around the world, charcuterie and chocolates to make your visit that much more delicious.
Please enjoy our space, the wines and our knowledgeable staff. We are here to answer questions and help make your visit with us that much more memorable.
