Chris Kern’s Forgotten Grapes is a wine shop unlike any other in southern California, as we specialize in wines from the Forgotten Grapes, namely wines from lesser-known and uncommon varietals, regions, and producers. You’ll find a wide assortment of uncommon and unique wines from all over the world, not to mention traditional grape wines from small, boutique producers and off-the-beaten path wine appellations. WE also feature a wine tasting bar where you can sample a rotating selection of Forgotten Grape wines, and we also have wine classes every Wednesday evening beginning later in December. Plus, there’s our AdVINturer’s Wine Club, our Forgotten Grapes 2012 Wine Tours to the Central Coast and France, and our unique, pop-culture-centric way of looking at and describing wine. It’s a wine experience unlike any other you’ll ever have, and it’s only at Chris Kern’s Forgotten Grapes!
Our Grand Opening festivities will begin at 5:30 pm on December 1st and follow with an official ribbon cutting at 6pm. We’ll have some celebratory cake available to commemorate our grand opening along with a couple of complementary wine pours, and we’ll also have our tasting bar ready and open if you’d like to try the selection of Forgotten Grape wines we’re pouring this week. 6 tastes will only run your $8, which is an absolute steal for some of the wines we’ll be pouring.
And of course, our entire stock of wines from lesser-known and uncommon varietals, regions, and producers will be available for you to purchase.
We do hope you can join us for this gala event to mark a sea change in the Inland Empire’s wine landscape. Chris Kern’s Forgotten Grapes is located at 1735 Spruce Street, Suite A in Riverside, CA 92507. We’re at the corner of Chicago and Spruce in the same complex as Best Thai and the Muffin Top Bakery.
