DIVINO Wine Bar

Posted in Announcements, Restaurant reviews by CreativeJuicesWine on January 13, 2010

We recently had the pleasure of checking out El Paso’s newest addition, DIVINO Wine Bar. Very aptly named in two languages, DIVINO is located at  3233 N Mesa St. They offer a solid selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle at very good prices, with a heavy influence from Italian wines.

We went for lunch, and shared a bottle of Sokol Blosser Evolution from Oregon, priced at $33. This is a deliciously complex wine that is made from 9 different grapes! (Muller-Thurgau, Riesling, Semillon, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat Canelli, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Sylvaner). It was aged in 100% Stainless Steel tanks, and weighs in at a very comfortable, and palatable 12% alcohol. Evolution carries a crisp acidity, and a wide variety of tropical fruit flavors that linger quite welcomely. We paired it with their bruschetta, and both were delightful. For more information on this wine:(www.evolutionwine.com).

Shortly after our arrival, we were joined by Pepe Delgado, and Cesar Diaz, the owners of DIVINO. Both are very knowledgeable and passionate about wine, as well as their project. Through our opportunity to talk to these gentlemen, it was obvious that they both have a great deal of love for wine. However, it was evident from the moment we walked in the door and saw all of the personal touches that echo throughout this bright and warm space. For a wine lover, this is home.

We enjoyed meeting Pepe and Cesar immensely, and will definitely be frequenting DIVINO. A wine bar like this is exactly what we’ve been waiting for in El Paso.
