The Twisted Vine Story

The true story of how The Twisted Vine became the best wine bar in Orange County!

It all started in Downtown Fullerton…

We first met 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 two things in common, our love of wine and 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 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 feel amazingly fortunate that such a dream came true.

We hope you'll consider paying us a visit and experience some of what makes Fulletron such a great place to drink, eat, and live in.
