The Valley’s wine bars offer long lists of vino and a laid-back atmosphere
(page 5 of 6)
Chill Wine Bar
The scene: Very casual, as its name suggests. “I call it deconstructing the dining experience,” co-owner Jim Svetz says. “There is no structured process. You can eat, drink, or get up and move around whenever you want.”
The list: A verifiable United Nations of vino, Chill offers 20 wines (by glass or bottle) from South America, Europe, Africa, and California. $5-$9 a glass; $19-$29 a bottle.
The favorite: The rich, spicy Malbec from Argentina and the berry-heavy Monastrell from Spain.
Don’t miss: The entertainment: Now that the weather is warming up, Svetz plans on booking live musicians to enhance the laid-back atmosphere.
