The goal with our wine list was simple. We looked for quality wines that would compliment our cuisine without breaking the bank. You may recognize some of the wineries on our list. Most of them may not be known to you. But rest assured, we tasted a lot of wines at the trade shows before coming up with our selection. On the whole, we think it’s a fun, eclectic list and not at all pretentious. Just as we are introducing you to new flavors with our cuisine, our wines look to do the same. There are wonderful blends to choose from, as well as some really unique varietals. There are wines from North America, South America, France, Spain, Italy, and South Africa. The list is thoroughly approachable. At Slate’s, you can’t be afraid of a little spice. And you shouldn’t be afraid of a little grape, either.

About the Blends - We've chosen quite a few blends for the the Slate's wine list, primarily because of their uniqueness. Blends are an easy way to enjoy a wine without worrying about specific international varietals. Blends are also gaining in popularity all around the globe because of their overall accessibility. Anyone who doesn't consider himself a wine connoisseur can relate to wines that are blended specifically for taste.
We like offering our guests samples of any wine by the glass so they can experiment and hopefully find a new wine to enjoy.
Rosé and Sparkling - Additionally, we have a small but varied selection of Rosé and Sparkling wines to choose from.
Malene Rose is from Santa Barbara County. It is a dry and textured Rose. Villa Rosa Moscato D'Asti is a sweeter Italian wine. Prosecco, Vovetti, a Prosecco from Italy. Bernard-Massard is a 1/2 bottle of sparkling wine from Luxembourg, and yields two glasses for you and a friend. And finally, Veuve Clicquot from France.
