The Wine Beach- Long Beach's Belmont Shore Wine Bar

By John Grossi

Two blocks from the beach, on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore, is The Wine Beach. A “dream come true” for partners Jodi Meade and Debbie Jarrett. The Wine Beach showcases the incredible small-batch producers of the California Central Coast, with a heavy emphasis on Paso Robles—a wine region the owners feel produces incredible wines that are under-represented in the market.

For those looking to get a bite to eat, the restaurant menu at The Wine Beach is purposefully crafted to pair with their wines, featuring delicious, farm-to-table fresh staples like cheese boards and pizzas. However, as Jarrett is quick to note, “We are a wine bar that serves food, not a restaurant that serves wine.”

With their laid back, approachable, beachy indoor atmosphere, Meade (a 1st degree Sommelier) and Jarrett (a 3rd degree Sommelier) keep the atmosphere light, letting their wine selection do the talking. Their 16 wines by the glass change every week, so there will always be something exciting and new for your next visit.
