Lou on Vine is divine

Don’t let the facade fool you: Lou on Vine may share its strip mall space with some dubious neighbors (like a Thai Massage parlor) in Hollywood, but it is one world-class act. So many wine writers have called Lou one their favorite destinations for natural-style wine, like Ray Isle in Food & Wine magazine. So last night on our night off, we headed up to Hollywood to check it out.
As Lou Admur puts it, “Lou pours thirty wines by the glass, priced between 6 and 16 dollars (half that for a 2oz taste). We favor natural winegrowing, indigenous grape varieties, native yeasts, dry farming, and the characterful wines produced by old vines.” Right now he’s featuring wines sourced from “ultra-old” vines, 80-200 years old. Check it out.
We loved it and highly recommend it. Lou on Vine gives a whole new meaning to the famous Hollywood street!
