Located in the heart of the Arts District, our Downtown Los Angeles location is the latest home addition to our growing list of tasting rooms. Our Downtown location features our award-winning, premium selection of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays produced under our Pali Label, in addition to Bordeaux and Rhone varietals from our Tower 15 label. Each of our labels offers unique tasting flights consisting of four different wines for $16. We also offer a rotating selection of fun, exciting, and fresh tap wines that can only be found at our tasting rooms.

Our full list of wines can be enjoyed by-the-glass or purchased by the bottle to be enjoyed in our tasting room or taken home. While sipping on a glass of wine or tasting through a flight, you can also enjoy a bite from our Small Plates Menu, which includes several items from the iconic Porto's Bakery, as well as some of our own dishes, created in-house.

If you’re hoping to balance your meal and order greens or a salad, this place is not for you and will fill you with cheese and meet only.. disappointing because they used to have at least arugula salad…

We enjoyed a nearly private mid afternoon meal on the patio out front. The servers were all incredibly friendly and well-educated in the wines. I would definitely recommend for a nice date that won't break the bank!

Pali is a go to for me for any occasion, whether it's quick drinks before dinner or a nice place to go afterwards! Big fan of the flights - ~2 glasses of wine worth (from 4 different bottles) for $20 is a steal in LA!

We go there almost every weekend and the employees now remembered us. They are super friendly and their service is impeccable! Last Sunday we became members and there are a lot of advantages and discounts when you apply. The wine list is great and the snacks wonderful!

Pali Wine Co. was a nice. However, due to Covid, we sat outside under a tent. This downplays the experience. We had two flights of tasters, olives, and almonds. Unfortunately, they don't have much selection with varying types of reds or whites. Most are Cabernet and Chardonnet.

If you know very little about wine, go in and ask for a flight of your waiter/waitress their favorite reds.

Came out perfect for me

Pali wines are known to be some of the best from the Santa Barbara region so we were happy to be able to experience Pali close to home. The downtown Arts District was lively and we felt safe in the area as lots of folks were out and about early evening on a Friday. The space was open and airy with all the large doors rolled up. The staff was very friendly and attentive. A manager visited our table to check on us and offered more information about the wines we were tasting. Excellent service. Excellent wines and the cheese plate was like piece of art.

I madea a reservation thru open table, so i don't have to wait to get in! They have wine flights tasting option but i and my friend went for bottles. The bottle price starts at 25 which seems pretty reasonable! The server was very knowledgeable for wine recommendations and also explaining on charcuterie board.

- if you like not too dry red wine, highly recommend 2017 Jetty
- they charge service price $10 per table. This wasn't instructed but we found on the bill when we checked out. The server was very nice and knowledgeable so we didn't feel bad for this hidden charge.
- charcuterie board is $35, very well curated! MUST TRY!
- the place follows covid-19 rule strictly, enough space between table to table.
- there's a heater outside so you won't be too cold

Overall, it was a lovely Friday night and i will definitely go back!

Some good wines, but no real food available. Not sure if it's because of covid or if this is a regular thing for Pali, but only olives and Macedonia almonds (which were delicious) are offered.

The shop is cute, clean and probably comfortable. For now, they have constructed an outdoor deck on the curb outside of the store and it's cute but provides absolutely no buffer from the sights and sounds of the neighborhood. There isn't anything the restaurant can do about it, but super loud cars zipping by constantly was a little annoying. They do provide space heaters, but our visit was a particularly chilly and windy day and it was rough.

This is still worth a visit anytime to enjoy some wine before or after a restaurant visit nearby, or just to chill with friends.

For Valentines Day, they offered a tantalizing wine sampler for 2 plus a charcuterie plate. We loved the reds and the food was top-quality (highlights were the green olives, cheeses, and almonds). Our server took good care of us, allowing me to sample another red on the house. We loved the vibe, the amazing selection of varietals (something for everyone), and it was a fun good-people watching spot. We also like that you can order a glass, a bottle, or a sampler.

My boyfriend and I came for our wine club pick up. We were seated right away and served quickly as well. We had the October wine flight with a mini charcuterie pairing. The ambience was nice. The tables were spaced apart enough that I felt safe to dine there. Overall a positive experience.
