Ventura County's Premier Food & Wine Tasting Experience!
Great wine is best enjoyed with great food and good friends, which is why we created The Cave. Located inside the Ventura Wine Co., The Cave is a place for exploring the pairing of food and wine.

After 25 years in the wine business, I have concluded that pairing of food and wine is not a perfect science...but merely the selection of a good wine and simple food prepared exceptionally well.

Our goal is to offer you good food, good wine, great value, and encourage you to discover for yourself what you like...without the interference of some so-called "expert" trying to convince you what is right.

In The Cave you will find that we have 32 wines avaialble by-the-ounce for tasting on our state of art Enomatic Machines. These machines dispense wines by 1-3-or5 ounce pours allowing you to taste a variety of wines before commiting to one by the glass. We also offer craft beers byt the bottle, and champage and sparkling wines by the glass. The wine selection changes frequently and we encourage you to return often to discover something new.
