Finding something delicious doesn’t have to involve hard work on your part. Sommelier Kevin Hart and The Cru are always on the prowl for exceptional producers, regions, varieties and styles to share. From benchmark juice to finding your new favorites, we're here to help you love what you drink and learn what you love.

Below are our current curated sets of wines we love. 

PETE'S PICKS

3 BOTTLES FOR $130

This is our first curated set by Pete, the Tasting Room Manager here at our bottle shop and wine bar. When it comes to those who drink wine for a living, Pete couldn’t paint a more clear picture about why he loves these three bottles. His driving force is versatility. Each wine can be paired with all manner of food or simply drunk on its own. The wines give a tour of regions he loves; Lombardy in Italy, and the Loire and Jura regions in France. These wines represent what he loves about natural wine while still showcasing a true sense of place.

SIPPING OUR WAY THROUGH SANTA BARBARA

3 BOTTLES FOR $120

Recently, the Hart & Cru team visited Santa Barbara out on the West Coast. There we were able to see firsthand many of the vineyard sites of wines we work with so closely. We spent time with winemakers who we’ve grown to respect and love. Santa Barbara encapsulates many of the styles we love from Europe, though have made a name for themselves in the cooler climate of Santa Barbara. This set is a tour of several of our favorites we visited while there.

ISLAND WINES

3 BOTTLES FOR $108

There are so many wines coming from islands all over Europe that we simply can’t get enough of! This set is a journey through the fantasy-like places of Mallorca, Sicily, and Tenerife of the Canary Islands. The wines are truly unique and exude a sense of place unlike anything else in the wine world. Wines from islands are different as they are more often untouched. The influence of water is large at hand, various wildlife, soil types, as well as the occasional active volcano.
