A word from Downtown & Vine
Downtown & Vine brings wine country to Sacramento offering a combination tasting room, wine bar and event center in one beautiful site. We have focused on bringing together 10 local wineries from the 5 wine regions that surround Sacramento, and two from Europe showcasing the amazing diversity of grape varietals and wine styles.

Our Wineries represent the best of “farm to fork” (we like to say farm to glass!)

    If you're looking for some different varieties of wines to taste, this is a good place to start, with intriguing tasting menus to suit a wide span of preferences. The service here is friendly and very helpful; they answered our questions about a number of wines, and we were glad we took their advice.

    A friend and I were looking for a place to eat before seeing a show at the Music Circus. The location was walking distance to the show and turned out to be a great place for a light meal and good wine selection. Service was very friendly and the chef accommodated our special request. The kind of place you would find in San Francisco or Napa.

    My boyfriend and I love wine tasting. The waitress was so nice and helpful. It was the best experience! They have so many flights of wine. We also had the best smoked salmon to go with our different wines.

    We went for lunch and couldn't really take advantage of the wine selections. I like the cariety of small bites. The outdoor seating overlooks Kay street so great people watching, but the day we were there there was construction which was intrusive. The inside is very comfy seating, more like a den atmosphere but it was too nice a day to sit inside.

  • Mom's Night Out

    Fun place for a low key Mom's Night Out. Great wine, great food, and quiet enough to have conversations with your girlfriend's to get up to date on their lives, but not so quiet so you can laugh and won't be stared at. Eat dinner, or just go for drinks. I've been looking for a place like this in Sacramento for years. Me and my friends will definitely be back!

    I appreciated the wait staff. They had great advice for wine pairing with foods. When one of the wines was just too strong she willingly took it and replaced it. However, later when the bill came they had charged us for some very small tastings. I don't recall that we had been informed that would happen. The food was just okay, not great. I had high hopes for this establishment when they first opened, but overall we were disappointed.

    We had a wonderful experience dining at Downtown & Vine. Our group of four was well attended to. The hostess and wait staff were very welcoming and pleasant, and proved knowledgable about the wine and beer selections, as well as the specials and other menu items. The ambiance was very nice, the staff attentive, and the food came out quickly and tasted great! Loved the variety of wine selections, especially having red and white, sweet and dry.

    Went there for the first time. The staff are very friendly and helpful with the menu. We thought the wine selection was great and reasonably priced.. We ordered the meat and chess plates. They were both excellent. And enough for two people. The place does get pretty noisy, so that was the only down fall. However, we will be back.

  • Great wine, food and cost
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/4/2013
    They pride themselves on low mark-ups on the wine, and it seems true. Glasses are much cheaper than most restaurants or wine bars, and bottles are very reasonable. Two of us shared the charcuterie plate and a cheese plate, but really just the cheese plate would have been enough (we prefer cheese over meats). Everything was excellent and the staff was very nice. We'll definitely be coming back.

    A return visit to enjoy some excellent wine flights, a charcuterie plate and a scrumptious 4 cheese sandwich. The manager is always extremely gracious and knowing regarding the wines. We shall be back for many more pleasant drinking and dining experiences.

    We sat outdoors. The exhaust from the building across the way was noisy, but we worked around it. Wine flights were nice and plates were tasty but too small to share really. The bill was a little shocking ,
