Calivino Wine Pub

Last week, I had the opportunity to do a food and wine tasting at the new Calivino Wine Pub located in Anaheim. My blogger friends Amanda from Feast.Fashion.Faves and Kimberly from According to Kimberly joined me for the inaugural Tuesday Trivia Night at Calivino too.

We were immediately met by founder Daniel Bradley at our corner booth and were presented food and wine menus. We learned that the popular savory bites are the Bacon Dates and Brussels Sprouts and popular Between the Bread items are Lamb Burger and Caprese.

We decided on the Cheese Platter, Bacon Dates, and Brussels Sprouts to go with our wine. My friends and I decided on Riesling from Germany, Clayhouse Adobe Red Blend, and Clayhouse Adobe White Blend.

The savory bites made by Chef Patrick Dale were so mouthwatering and went perfectly well with our wine during our night of catching up and girl talk. I really loved the goat cheese and honey complimenting the Bacon Dates and hint of honey and pork belly on the Brussels Sprouts. The Cheese Platter with cranberries, walnuts, baguette and choice of soft and hard cheeses was sheer perfection. 

For our Entree, we decided on the Lamb Burger to share. The Lamb Burger had mint, garlic, onion jam, and gremolata yogurt. I normally don't like lamb but this was so tangy. Daniel mentioned to us that the Lamb Burger  and all the dishes are made in house from scratch. I could definitely tell everything was made with love.

As the perfect ending to our fun girls night night, we chose the Chocolate Lava Cake. This ultimate chocolate lover cake is made with coffee reduction, white chocolate nibs, and whipped cream. We loved it when the chocolate oozed out and immediately devoured it before it was time to head home to reality.

I definitely recommend Calivino Wine Pub. It's a perfect spot to go to after work, before you head  to the Angels Stadium or Honda Center, or after a day of holiday shopping. They have several specials like 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wine Wednesdays along with beer, wine and select menu items available at happy hour.
