It's been quite some time since I visited this page, so I thought it was a good idea to check in. If you haven't made it in during the two years we've been open, I invite you to see what you've been missing. I hope to make this work in Davis for the long term and ultimately the community will determine the viability of that. Cheers to our regulars, including students, that have supported us the past two years.

I'm not well-versed in wine, but the atmosphere is very charming to me, inducive of good conversation. I feel the prices are reasonable (~$6 for a total glass, which I think is average). But because the self-serve cards give 2oz samples at a time, you have a huge variety to choose from, with short descriptions of all of them, which is great for people like me who aren't sure what they like yet. Really excited to try again, and highly recommend this place. --["Users/HannahToru"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-10-15 08:20:36JabberWokkyRemoving meta-comment that's not about Vini. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Vini Wine Bar<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 63: </td> <td> Line 63: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ------<br> - ''2012-10-14 18:57:09'' [[nbsp]] Um, not appropriate that my comments have been removed.

Davis might have an especially strict policy on approving alcohol establishments in downtown due to the recent controversy surrounding Picnic Day. Go ask the owner of De Veers about his experience with opening - the bar didn't even have their alcohol serving license when they opened. They were able to open before getting it because De Veers is part restaurant. What can a wine bar do without an alcohol serving license? If you've managed to walk through downtown and looked inside the Vini windows, you would have also noticed that the owner went through a great deal of renovations to the interior. Installing the equipment/plumbing necessary for 88 different wines is a time consuming and costly task to say the least.</span> </td> <td> <span>+ = Older reviews =</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 54: </td> <td> Line 35: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- You are obviously not a wine person because if you were, you would be well aware that importing/exporting alcohol from different states/countries is a bureaucratic nightmare for even the smallest winery - let alone a wine bar which will stock 88 wines from around the world. In the United States, every state has their own rules and policies on alcohol distribution so wine importers are basically dealing with the regulations of 50 individual countries. Importing from outside the country? That's an ordeal in itself that takes time.

It's one thing to anticipate a grand opening, its entirely different to bash said business while uninformed. That said, I will delete a few of my comments. --["Users/Darkfallin"]<br> - <br> - I had a similar reaction to Darkfallin.

OTOH, Vini has set a record (has it not?) for longest time leasing a space in Downtown without being open.

I guess it's like a roller coaster line -- I don't mind waiting as long as I have to as long as the signs with the time estimates are accurate. When I end up waiting 3 hours instead of 1 with no courtesy notice as to why I get a little frustrated.<br> - <br> - But now that they are supposed to be opening by the middle of the month that is great.

Now that I've been here a couple times I can confidently say that this is a great, great place and something that really adds flavor to the Downtown Davis experience. Even better, the machine gives you 2 oz. pours (the other one I've been to only gave 1 oz. pours) so you really get a significant amount for tasting.<br> + <br> + The selection is by far my favorite part of this--red wine dominates (yay!), but your friends who are more into whites or ros├ęs, or beers for the non-winos, won't feel left out. The staff is always very courteous and prompt, and fairly knowledgeable if you ask about what kinds of preferences you have. They've always steered me into the right direction when I've told them what I was looking for.<br> + <br> + Lastly, regarding the people "worried" about there not being comments here... without posting a "Let me Google that for you" link (I was definitely tempted), keep in mind that Yelp already has quite a few reviews about Vini.<br> + <br> + Side note: can anyone with wiki-editing savvyness group some of the above comments into a "Pre-Opening" page?

I've changed some of the initial wines we were pouring on July 15, but the next major rotation of wines won't occur for another 2-3 weeks. How often we change wines will be based on how quickly inventory moves. Some wines sold out multiple times in the first 30 days, others took about that long to sell out once. Most of the inventory will be sold through two cycles. With 80 wines available, there are plenty of options to choose from. Also wanted to make sure people are aware our staff, including me, spend plenty of time interacting with guests. Although the self-pour aspect is what makes using the Enomatic system so much fun, we don't ignore our guests once they load a card. We provide table service for food and anything else our guests need, including wine by the glass, draught beer or sparkling beverages. We're definitely not just a 'self-serve' wine bar. We want to provide the best personal experience we can for all of our guests. Thus far, our feedback from guests has been extremely positive. Also, we have one TV at the bar which only shows the Jazz Icon videos. We have no cable TV. So, unlike most establishments, you won't feel like you're at a sports bar. --["Users/jeffday"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-09-11 13:31:17DavidBenjamin(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Vini Wine Bar<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 23: </td> <td> Line 23: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> '''Vini ["Wine"] Bar''' is a self-serve wine bar featuring an Enomatic wine preservation system--essentially an automated wine server allowing for self-serve using prepaid cards.

Yes, we've been open since July 15, 2012 and the response has been tremendous. We went through 2,000 VINI Tasting Cards in the first 30 days of business. Guests really enjoy accessing 2 ounce self-pours of the 72 wines available via our state-of-the-art Enomatic wine serving system from Tuscany, Italy. The majority of pours range between $2.00 and $3.00. The 48 red wines are divided into twelve 4 bottle flights, while the white wines are set up in eight 3 bottle flights. Flights are arranged on a varietal, style or geographic basis. Tasting notes are provided for all 72 wines. In addition, there is a selection of wines by the glass,including sparkling and dessert, along with six premium draught beers, sparkling water, cider and juice. Stone's Catering provides cheese plates, cheese and charcuterie, olives, hummus spreads and grape bowls. Food is available during all hours of operation.<br> + <br> + Depending on when guests arrive, VINI offers two entirely different experiences. Those arriving early will experience a more conversation friendly vibe, while the late crowd tends to be more energetic and a louder vibe. Almost cocktail party in nature. Very social. I tend to play our selection of Jazz Icon videos during the later part of the evening. Many guests have expressed how much they enjoy the feel of the space, which is very upscale, but casual in nature. Definitely geared more for the adult crowd. We utilize SIRIUS XM Real Jazz and Sinatra stations to create a Jazz themed sound. My intention is to have Jazz play a prominent role in the VINI experience. Due to the fact all of my seating can be moved, the City of Davis was concerned I could become a Jazz club. Thus, I am not allowed to have live music on the premises. My Jazz Icon video performances will have to suffice.<br> + <br> + We recently hosted a group of 30 people for a UCD function and it went extremely well. We will be making the space available for large groups on Monday evenings. I'm hopeful Donal Smith's wine appreciation classes will begin on Monday's in November. I'd also like to mention our weekend hours recently changed from opening at Noon to opening at 3 PM. We may stay open until Midnight on Thursday once school begins later this month. The positive feedback from guests has been very gratifying. I'm pleased so many guests have enjoyed their time at VINI and continue bringing friends to join them. We're very excited about our first winery event on September 19, featuring Scribe Winery. It's going to be a fun night to meet Adam and Andrew Mariani and taste some of their amazing wines and enjoy food from Preserve (Winters). The Mariani brothers hail from Winters. I suggest checking the VINI WINE BAR Facebook page for updates and information on what's going on at VINI. --["Users/jeffday"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-09-11 00:46:21jeffdayUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar?action=Files&do=view&target=Vini.JPG">Vini.JPG</a>.vini wine barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-09-11 00:45:12jeffdayImage <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar?action=Files&do=view&target=Vini.JPG">Vini.JPG</a> deleted.Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-09-11 00:43:02jeffdayUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar?action=Files&do=view&target=at%20last%21.jpg">at last!.jpg</a>.Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-07-30 22:50:41RJTaylorUpdated phone, hours, etc. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Vini Wine Bar<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 7: </td> <td> Line 7: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- || Please fill in hours ||</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ||Tue - Thu: 3:00 pm - 11:00 pm||<br> + ||Fri: 3:00 pm - 12:00 am||<br> + ||Sat: 12:00 pm - 12:00 am||<br> + ||Sun: 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm||</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 9: </td> <td> Line 12: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||(530) 5<span>55</span>-5<span>555</span>|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||(530) <span>7</span>5<span>6</span>-5<span>722</span>|| </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 16: </td> <td> Line 19: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- || Date, i.e. YYYY-MM-DD ||</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ||July 15th, 2012||</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 18: </td> <td> Line 21: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- || Type of payment ||</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ||Cash, Credit Card||</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-07-29 12:07:48PsittacosaurusComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Vini Wine Bar<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 72: </td> <td> Line 72: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-07-29 12:07:48'' [[nbsp]] ChrisV, they have cheese plates, olive, charcuterie, and hummus to snack on with your wines. --["Users/Psittacosaurus"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-07-23 12:29:46ChrisVComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Vini Wine Bar<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 70: </td> <td> Line 70: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-07-23 12:29:46'' [[nbsp]] The place looks shiny and new, since, well, it is.

There are a laundry list of possible reasons why the Vini Wine Bar took so long to open - reasons that you obviously are not aware of.<br> + <br> + Alcohol serving establishments have to go through a very lengthy process before opening their doors due to strict California alcohol regulations. Davis might have an especially strict policy on approving alcohol establishments in downtown due to the recent controversy surrounding Picnic Day. Go ask the owner of De Veers about his experience with opening - the bar didn't even have their alcohol serving license when they opened. They were able to open before getting it because De Veers is part restaurant. What can a wine bar do without an alcohol serving license? If you've managed to walk through downtown and looked inside the Vini windows, you would have also noticed that the owner went through a great deal of renovations to the interior. Installing the equipment/plumbing necessary for 88 different wines is a time consuming and costly task to say the least.<br> + <br> + You are obviously not a wine person because if you were, you would be well aware that importing/exporting alcohol from different states/countries is a bureaucratic nightmare for even the smallest winery - let alone a wine bar which will stock 88 wines from around the world. In the United States, every state has their own rules and policies on alcohol distribution so wine importers are basically dealing with the regulations of 50 individual countries. Importing from outside the country? That's an ordeal in itself that takes time. Jeff Day probably went through countless hours of negotiations with wineries and wine distributors around the world to ensure that the Vini Wine Bar is 1) Fully stocked at all times and 2) Periodically changes the wines to meet customer demand.<br> + <br> + How on earth you can throw out such reckless judgment based solely on a delayed opening is beyond me - you make it sound like you already found cockroaches roaming around your wine glass.<br> + <br> + Good day to you. --["Users/Darkfallin"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Vini Wine Barhttp://daviswiki.org/Vini_Wine_Bar2012-05-24 16:03:31MikeyCrewsIf they can stay closed for 18 months, they can probably stay open longer than 6 <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Vini Wine Bar<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 43: </td> <td> Line 43: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * It does make you wonder how so many businesses can't afford to stay open down town, yet this business can afford to remain closed for over approaching two years.
