Winedown Sundays are excellent! Three course dinner for $30 that includes wine; appetizers, like clams main course selection (usually 6 or 7 options) that is always changing, anything from pizza to fried chicken, pasta, roast pork, veggie ravioli, ...; finally a desert choice.

Buon Vino Wine ShopBuon Vino Wine Shop

Wine Bar | Walnut Creek, East Bay

At Buon Vino, our mission is simple: to change the way Americans enjoy wine. Finally, you have the opportunity to taste fantastic wines from California's finest regions before you buy the bottle! Straight from the Tuscan region of Italy comes a unique concept to buying wine the way it's been done for centuries, directly from the vineyard to the bottle. Buon Vino's concept is easy: come in, talk with us about your wine preferences (white/red? heavy/light body?), and then try a taste to see what you like. Once you find a great wine (Buon Vino!), we simply fill your wine bottles, cork them, and off you go to enjoy! Love your choice? Bring the bottle back, and we'll recycle them. It's the perfect way to celebrate and conserve the environment! Please note for parties of 8 or more we require a credit card hold of $25/pp.More
