The Twisted Vine Story

We met in Downtown Fullerton in 2001. A trip to Napa Valley was one of our first excursions together outside of Orange County. At the time, we knew we had at least one thing in common, and that was our love of wine. We also agreed on our love of Fullerton. After a few years passed, we were married in Napa, and were hooked. Although at the time The Twisted Vine was nothing more than a dream (and perhaps the Pinot Noir talking), we feel amazingly fortunate that such a dream came true.

We both decided we wanted to bring a bit of the wine country closer to home. So, after a few glasses of wine, we both agreed that a wine bar was precisely what Fullerton needed. Whether you consider yourself a wine aficionado, collector, or a complete novice on the subject, we think you’ll find our place down to earth, sophisticated, but without pretension. Most of all, it's a place to sit, relax, and have some fun over good food and drink. We have had the chance to meet and serve wonderful customers in the years we've been in operation, and look forward to doing the same for many years to come. We hope you'll consider paying us a visit.
