Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

A wonderful place, Tucson is lucky to have it. Before you go to a big box wine store, stop here and you'll keep coming back. The owner is very full of wine knowledge and has never let us down with a recommendation. Go there!!!!

Re: “Elle Wine Bistro

Okay but the food was underwhelming. When we went the waitstaff seemed to lack training. Lighting and table location was odd.

Re: “Armitage Wine Lounge and Café

Overpriced wine and the worst hummus I've ever eaten! The brie appetizer is okay, but I wouldn't eat anything here unless it's happy hour, the food just isn't that good. I guess I should just say that it's plain bad.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Have you ever wanted to learn about wine without appearing ignorant around wine snobs? Well, I found Cata Vinos was just the place. Imagine relaxing in a comfortable atmosphere, sampling a variety of tasty wines. You will find the staff knowledgable & helpful, the patrons friendly, and the well stocked shop has something for everyone.....all under $15! Wonderful fun to go with a party of friends, although I'm just as comfortable going alone. Very welcoming.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

A very well-kept secret! What a jewel. Most unique place for wine and wine tastings. Nice to know you are getting a good value (everything is under $15, but has to "pass mustard" to be in the shop) - even without the wine tastings! Highly recommend CataVinos!!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

This place is wonderful. The atmosphere is warm and the staff are inviting (not pretentious). And you can't beat a wine-tasting for $10.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

I enjoy visiting Cata Vinos but find it too expensive. $20 a couple adds up so I don't visit as often as I would like. Beverage House has tasting for $2 and they throw in cheese and crackers, too. The selection is great and Yvonne is very welcoming, however, I wish she would drop her tasting price.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Tucson's greatest little niche for wine! Great place to find affordable wines that you like (and not just the labels) ... and meet new friends, bonding over palates! Great place to take those out-of-town guests too, always a great theme tasting each week.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

A great place to shop for delicious and affordable wine. Yvonne and her staff search the marketplace for those rare and up-and-coming wines to stock in the store and keep things fresh and interesting. Cata Vinos is out in front of the pack while the big box stores still lag behind the Tucson wine scene. Plus the wines are less than $15.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

My partner and I love to start our weekends off at Cata Vinos for the Thrusday or Friday night wine tasting. Yvonne (owner) always has great wines selected for the tastings and we usually pick up a bottle or six from the tasting to take home and enjoy. It's a warm, friendly place were we can get together at the end of the week and relax or meet friends and catch up over delicious, very reasonably priced wines. Even though we live in Vail, we just have to get our regular Cata Vinos fix...it's definitely worth the trip.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

This is a great place to wine-taste with friends as well as find wonderful wines at affordable prices. Yvonne and her staff are helpful and friendly. There's a large variety of wines, something for everybody's taste and pocketbook. The weekly wine-tastings are a great way to introduce yourself to the shop as well as meet your friends for a little socializing. For $10 you get 6 generous pours and, if you buy a bottle, the tasting is only $8. This is one terrific wine shop!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

I HIGHLY recommend Catavinos and its owner Yvonne Foucher. Catavinos is a nice little bodega on the East side of town. It has a wonderful variety of foreign and domestic wines and a ceiling price, in the store, of $15.99. Catavinos offers a fine atomosphere for shopping, tasting, and learning about wines. Yvonne is a VERY knowledgeable and friendly proprietor who always has a smile and a tip on the latest tasty addition to her bodega. We live more than 20 miles from Catavinos, don't get there as often as we'd like, but still stop in to stock up whenever we're in the neighborhood. Despite not seeing us as often as her regulars, Yvonne remembers us, our tastes in wine, and greets us warmly. Don't take my word for it. I urge you to try Catavinos for yourself and note why it is a delightful difference on the landscape of Tucson wine stores!

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

This is one of those fabulous hidden gems of Tucson; tucked away on a corner just one block south of River on the southwest corner, CataVinos is owned by Yvonne Foucher....she creates a wonderfully intimate, warm, and fun environment, with great art shows changing about every 6 weeks, lots of good value wines, and knows her stuff. Whether you go for a wine tasting, or just drop in to buy a bottle or two, you will get excellent value for your money, and a terrific experience. Yvonne, and her staff, are more than willing to help, assist, guide you in making good decisions, and opening you to try new wines.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

At the top of my list for a place to get together with friends and get to meet others. The price is right at under $15 per bottle.
