Wine Lab

Located in Costa Mesa’s anti-mall, Wine Lab is the perfect combination of modern and fresh. It offers two ways to get your wine fix. The first is by ordering one of their wine flights. Presented in their signature test tubs, Wine Lab offers three to six tastings tubes that showcase different themes of wine. Although the wines available for these flights are ever changing, Wine Lab will always provide a variation of a White Wine Flight, Red Wine Flight and a Top Red Flight. The Top Red Flight offers more expensive red wines that are usually limited in quantity. If a flight is a little too much wine for you, Wine Lab also sells wine by the glass. Their wine by the glass menu is a large beautiful variety of wines ranging from bubbly wines to deep reds. Wine Lab also offers a variety of food to go with your wine including amazing cheeses and meats where you and your friends can build your cheese and charcuterie boards. Break out your science kits and get those test tubes filled with the fantastic wines at Wine Lab. 2937 Bristol St. Ste A101B, Costa Mesa
