Great Food and Wine
Don't let the location or the store front fool you. This place has fantastic wine and fabulous food. Great hidden gem. We ordered the bacon wrapped, goat cheese stuffed figs, cheese and meat plate, bruschetta, artichoke dip, and Pot de creme. Everything was wonderful!!! Can't wait to go back.

Wine bar that knows food
Tucked into a strip mall, Après is an great wine bar that has a limited but excellent menu. Seating other than at the bar is limited but its worth the reservation. The roasted figs were outstanding. The entrees, a vegetarian polenta dish, salmon, and chicken with penne were all done well.

Hidden Gem in South Lake Tahoe
SLT has less than a handful of excellent restaurants - and I would put Apres Wine in the top 2 (my other favorite being Cafe Fiore). Despite that it is hidden in a strip mall, the food and atmosphere are superb. I highly recommend their paired four course dinner (fixed price). The courses were all delicious and served in perfect portions - and what a treat to have each course perfectly paired with a 2 oz glass of top notch wine (the perfect amount to complement a course). My husband had the polenta (vegetarian) and I had the salmon (wild caught!). The chocolate bark, made in the restaurant, is the perfect finish to an excellent meal and evening. Highly Recommend! The wine bar is small (intimate), so be sure to make a reservation.

Stop by have a glass and a bite!
My wife and I visited Apres for appetizers and wine. We frequent this wine bar because the staff is friendly, the food is cutting-edge and the wine selection changes regularly, allowing us to discover new vintages. Lauren, our bartender, was friendly and knowledgeable, suggesting several wines based on our preferences. We enjoyed a very tasty Spanish Rioja that went great with their Charcuterie Plate. Owners JP and Barb happened to be there and we had nice chat with them.
The wine bar also has many nice wine-related gifts in their retail shop along with a great selection of wines.
This is one of our favorite places to frequent and we often eat a full meal there. The desserts are especially good!

What a lovely evening we spent
What a lovely evening we spent here! The 4 course pairing menu was fun, good choices for the entrée, good wines to suit the food!
There was a (very loud) bachelorette party of 10, and our lovely waitress still attended to us very well, even moving our table mid-meal for a bit more quiet! This place is small, but really a great way to end our Tahoe vacation. We would definitely come back again!

The staff are very nice. The owner helped us learn how to use the Wine tasting machine. It was fun to try the wines we wanted to. The food was good we tried some appetizers and an entree. Not cheap but you are in Tahoe
