If you’re just beginning to dip your toes into natural wine, check out Tala Wine Co. in Excelsior. This small neighborhood spot with just a few tiny high-tops focuses on sourcing low-intervention stuff that doesn’t lean too much into the funkier side of things—so if you like your sauvignon blanc to taste more like sauvignon blanc and less like kombucha, you’ve found the right place. And if you’re having trouble deciding or deciphering the list, Tala herself will be more than happy to help out. Sip it all alongside a choose-your-own-adventure snack plate.
