Pasadena Neighborhood Winery (Paseo Colorado Plaza)

It’s like this, you can “make your own wine” there (just like make your own beer in the beer breweries). You choose the formula (of how much for each kind of grapes) and you can go back to check on it. You then get your own wine in 6 weeks off their condensed grape juice made wine ordered from other vineyards… No they don’t have their own vineyard… You get about 60 bottles in the end for about $10 each for your guests to take home after a dinner party with lots and lots of food you host there on your “big day”.

I tried the Merlot, Carbonate Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Zinfandel and Chocolat Port. All of them taste so so fruity, on the berry side, like CVS kid’s liquid cold medicine. Since they’ve only opened for a year, all of them are exceptionally young although unfortunately they’re not chicks. It’s pretty nasty. Basically they’re not really wine but some berry flavored wine-like beverage I think. For $15.99 a bottle, I really can’t imagine what kind of idiots will buy them except maybe a highschool kid trying to impress his 17-years-old girlfriend with his sophisticated hobby. And believe me, when his highschool sweetheart becomes a grandma with saggy tits, this bottle of wine still isn’t going to be a good bottle of vintage. Period. It’s a joke.

The only thing good about this place is the bar-tender. She’s very helpful, acceptably knowledgeable and cute. She shouldn’t be there.
