UNWINED Wine Bar and Shop under new ownership

Six years ago Dan and Leticia Pascal opened UNWINED, a new wine shop and wine bar deep in Almaden Valley in San Jose.  Over those years UNWINED has become a favorite for winelovers in this southern end of San Jose.  Dan says, “We want to thank everyone for their support during these years.  We will always cherish the great memories, the people we have met and the friendships that we have developed.”

On January 10 UNWINED opens under new ownership.  Rory and Anna Chitwood and Danielle Metz, the new owners, plan on continuing the friendly service, great music and wide selection of fine wines that customers have come to expect over the years.  Danielle has worked at UNWINED for several years and a patron since it opened.  She and Anna have been teachers at a local elementary school and Rory has been at Apple for over 20 years.  Rory and Anna are long-time residents of Almaden Valley.  Rory says, "UNWINED continues to be your favorite local wine bar and we are anxious to meet you and welcome you to our shop."

UNWINED provides its patrons with more than just great wine.  Three wide-screen TV’s provide the latest sports entertainment via satellite.  The best of Jazz is always playing in the background and on Thursday and Saturday evenings; live bands provide the entertainment while the experienced bartenders serve up the drinks.  Local artists and photographers display their works on the walls and occasional art shows provides the patrons with the chance to meet the artists!

The outdoor patio provides patrons with a great venue to sample some great wines while watching the world go by during warmer days.

Now you are drinking your delicious wine, listening to some great jazz, socializing with your local friends, and watching the Sharks win on the wide screen TV.  What goes better with wine than food?  UNWINED offers you a wide selection of cheese plates, tapas, lasagna, salads, Panini sandwiches, desserts and more.  Every Tuesday afternoon is happy hour with special menu items and discounts.

Wine lovers will find approximately 300 labels on the wall of the wine shop, while behind the bar, 50 different wines are always on the menu.  At UNWINED if you are not sure whether the wine in the shop is what you want, there is a great chance that it is currently available at the bar so you can taste before you buy that bottle.  Not sure what wine is right for your occasion?  Check with the bartenders for help in selecting the right bottle for that special dinner or event.  UNWINED also has a wide selection of wine accessories to enhance your in-home tasting adventure.

Be sure to stop by on Wednesday evenings when UNWINED host special tasting events, featuring a selected winemaker, wine style or wine region.  This is the perfect chance to learn more about a winery or wine style since often the winemaker is pouring the wine!

Join the UNWINED Wine Club for a truly exciting tasting experience.  The UNWINED Wine Club is unique from the standard Winery Wine Clubs.  For each 6 week release the tasting crew will sample almost 100 wines to select the right wine for the UNWINED
