Trek Wine has a large open tasting room with a tasting counter to one side, a few bar tables and stools and a couple of nice sitting areas with couches and club chairs along the front window.
After looking at the tasting menu, we decided to do a 'flight' of all reds.....only $5! And if after, you decide to purchase a bottle of wine, the tasting fee will go towards your purchase....win-win!
Trek Wine is large enough to reserve for private parties, maybe a company meeting in their Board Room......
If you find yourself hungry while tasting, you can order some snacks from their menu...food provided by nearby restaurants.
Their wines are made with grapes from local growers and are not over-priced. My favorite was the 2007 Syrah, $20, with the 2008 Cab a close second. The bottle of Syrah we bought has been corked and consumed, I need to plan a 'shopping trip' and stock up on it for the holidays.....SO good.
They also have an outdoor patio complete with coy pond and outdoor heaters.....very cozy, nice atmosphere. I think my next girl's night out is going to begin at Trek.
If you're headed out to dinner or maybe have some out of town guests to entertain, a great starting point would be Trek Wine. Trek is located in downtown Novato, just one block off Grant Avenue and within walking distance to many downtown restaurants. You will not be disappointed. This is JUST what downtown Novato...or even all of Marin County needed!
