There are a whole lot of places to drink good wine in Los Angeles - but Angeleno Wine is the first new winery to open in LA since Prohibition, and one of only two currently in operation. This spot in Chinatown sources all their grapes locally, and a trip there is like a lesson in the history of LA winemaking (like, for starters, there is a history of LA winemaking). The owners will tell you all about varietals, vineyards, and vintners as they pour you glass after glass of their house-made grenache, tannat, and graciano rosé. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of history class we want to be a part of.
