Press has scored a trifecta: wine, microbrews, and cheese. The wine list includes varietals from Australia, Argentina, Spain, France, Italy, and California. Prices start at $6 for a glass to $182 for a bottle of Opus One from Napa.
The selection of microbrews is impressive, too, with craft brews such as Sam Smith Organic Lager, Dogfish 60 Minute IPA, and Tommy Knocker Maple Nut Brown Ale.
Of course, a glass (or bottle) of wine isn’t complete without cheese. Smoked gouda, farmhouse cheddar, morbier, truffle tremor, and harlech are just a few of the artisanal cheeses on the menu. Other small plates are also offered.
