TAHOE POURHOUSE has experienced unprecedented scrutiny and delays during the permitting process to renovate and build out this space at the Crossing. We apologize for not being open NOW to meet your needs for Artisan Roasted Free Trade Coffee, Quality and nutritious breakfast foods, grab and go and custom made signature Sandwiches, Salads, Cheese and Charcuterie trays, with an additional selections of assorted and creative farm to fork small plates in the evening hours.
Still, we are excited to EVENTUALLY open one of the first self-tap wine bars in California. With 20 taps at your fingertips, you get to choose how much and of which wine you would like to partake. In addition to the self-tap wine wall, the wine bar will feature our “discovery selections” of wines in a more traditional wine by the glass setting where you can improve your wine knowledge and learn of rare and limited production wines from the local area and around the world. These “discovery wines” will be available to purchase by the bottle, and at reduced price when purchased in multiples. Additionally, we will have a selection of interesting and personally selected gourmet foods, oils and condiments for sale, items we use as ingredients in our menu.
Our operation is what we call triple bottom line. Our business decisions are based not only on being a profitable enterprise, but one that encourages growth in our employees, and on being a catalyst for the betterment of community and the environment. Our reusable keg wine system reduces the need for glass bottles, cardboard, and significantly reduces transportation costs saving an enormous amount of fuel and reducing our carbon footprint. We value the beauty of the Lake Tahoe area and want to protect that as well as see our friends and neighbors benefit from our presence in the community.
To date we have met every challenge put before us and will continue to evolve and adjust to the many complicated demands of the City and County, with hopes of opening at the beginning of March 2018. Please keep us in your thoughts. We hope to see you in our comfortable lounge and at our wine bar enjoying the best life has to offer. Cheers to 2018!
