I concur with the other reviewers. Tango Wine has great wine tastings and really original wine events. They have no corkage fee which was great with a group of friends -- quite reasonable. I heard they were adding food so that is a plus plus although they often have complimentary munchies around. This is a rather eclectic wine bar especially for the Little Italy area. It seems to always have very intelligent and interesting people from the local area as well as a significant amount of folks stopping in to get their wines for cruise ships. Who knew so many great cruise ship destinations were heading out of San Diego. Ok, I am digressing.

I was looking for an interesting outing last wednesday, and I came across Tango. It just so happened that they were having a "Wine Class" about the Casa Lapostolle winery and the wines that they offer. I was very impressed by the knowledge of the staff, and their friendly attitudes, even considering my inexperiance and silly questions. All in all, it was a memorable night and I can't wait for the next "Wine Class". A must see in Little italy.

Pros: Great Staff knowledge, outstanding wine prices

Cons: focussed on American(north and south)

My wife and I had what we call two great experiences in one at Tango Wine Company. We found them online based on close proximity to the San Diego airport and espcially to where our cruise ship was departing. Started out we browsed their wines online and then called to order 2 cases of wine to take on our Holland America cruise.

Once we arrived from San Diego airport we stopped by to pick up the wines and since we were there why not taste a few! This actually resulted in changing out a few bottles in our original cases for some new wines that we tasted. The staff were really friendly and did not at all try to upsell us. We felt they really wanted us to have the right wines. We had a really great time hanging out in the Tango Wine lounge and look forward to our next trip to tango and San Diego.

With that, we highly recommend Tango Wine for not only hanging our drinking wine but also for grabbing soem great bottles of wine if your cruise ship is departing out of San Diego. I guarantee with the prices on the cruise ships for wine this will save you a bundle.

Pros: amazing wine, close to cruise ship, view of San Diego harbor

Cons: I live too far to go often

In my opinion, one of the best wine bars in San Diego. I absolutely loved this place. They offer a wide selection of high quality wines as well as new and exotic wines. Their selection is superb! Their staff was super-friendly and very knowledgeable.

This place is great. They have a room that can be rented out for parties and on off days/hours they often let you have the room for free if you purchase a small amount of wine. I recently attended a birthday party there and the staff was beyond friendly. They were cool enough they let us hook up a karaoke machine to their plasma TV.

My friends and I went one of Tango's recent wine tasting events and had a wonderful time. They were featuring a winery from Northern California that had wonderful tasting Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. It was a great opportunity to learn more about wine, get together with the girls and have fun. Tango has a great relaxing environment that makes you want to go back for more!!

Tango is a great place to have a get together with your friends, especially on the weekends. They have $5 dollar testing?s with yummy affordable wine. I have to say going to Tango has made me do away with 2-Buck Chuck. I have been converted to enjoying the good stuff Argentina, Chile, and Australia has to offer. Every time I go whether it?s with my fiends or family we always have a good time. The no corkage fee is awesome and is always a group fav.

I finally made it over to Tango Wine based on the reviews here and I can see why this was voted the best wine bar in San Diego. The wines were all great -- we were there on Hall Pass Friday and tasted so many great wines. I have always loved Pinot Noirs and ended up being pleasantly surprised by a Riesling that I tasted. The nice thing with the Friday event is you can try several varietals and actually taste the difference. The staff could not be nicer and they had out some complimentary cheeses from Venissimo which are also my favorite. All in all they have great events, great wines and tons from South America. The trick is to check out their website for what events are going on. That Riesling I had was from Paraiso and they will eb there on Wednesday so i will be back.

Pros: great wines and prices, friendly staff, no corkage fee, easy parking especially after 6

Cons: can't think of any now

I have been inhabiting Tango Wine since it opened and love the casual and warm atmosphere. I liked it so much I "volunteered" to work there one night a week - not that it feels much like work.

It is a great place to meet friends after work for a drink or on the weekends to kick start the night with a glass of wine before dinner. Only problem I ever had is that I was having so much fun I never made it to the next destination!

Whether you are looking for a place to watch the play off games, or just listen to music and work on your laptop, Tango provides just the right spot to be comfortable with your own form of entertainment. No one says you can't have a glass of wine in the afternoon - afterall it is 5 o'clock somewhere!

See you at Tango ....

I attended the Chile and Argentina wine tasting last Friday night and it was great. The wines were all very good and the prices were very reasonable. The tasting itself was 3 nice size tastings for only $5. Our group then bought a bottle of the Terrazas Reserva Malbec which was phenomenal and well under $20. Apparantly at Tango they never charge a corkage fee to open up your bottle and enjoy it in their tasting room so what can I say --- we opened a second one! This is the friendliest wine bar in San Diego and I think we will all become regulars for their 3 for $5 Friday wine tastings. One other tip: you can mix and match a case of wines and they will give you a 10% discount.

Cons: closes at 10 pm

I actually found Tango Wine through this website and went in there thinking they were probably over rated. I had a super time selecting wines and left with the most interesting selection of wines mostly well under $20 each. I would call this place an eclectic wine store and I can tell they don't buy into these group buys alot of places do. The Tango girls were super fun when I was there and we all hung out and enjoyed a bottle of Primus from Chile. Nice job ladies! Be back soon and probably for PMS Wednesday!

Cons: Had to leave for a date

"Tango Wine is still a great place to go to. Placed in Little Italy with a good parking space. It has been decorated since last year, and it is beautiful.
Tango has a great variety of good wines, especially from South America and California. The wines are arranged by the country, and there is for instance a corner for wine "To impress your boss". Every bottle is priced.The people working in Tango are always very helpful and friendly.
Tango Wine has a lot of winetasting, and a lot of different events.
If you look at Tango's website you can easily see, what i s going on. But it is always great just to drop in either to buy wine or to drink it in the wonderful bar.
I love Tango Wine Company.

Great place. Reminds me of the warm, friendly and down to earth atmosphere you find in the villiage pubs in Britain. I think that's because the owners are unpretentious, have a great sense of humor, and clearly enjoy what they do. I would feel comfortable there whether I were on a date, conducting business, or with my parents! Wine bars too often have a sense of false aristocracy - but not this place, it's a safe harbor, a place to to talk, to think, and to relax. The proof? I'm a guy and I didn't feel the least bit threatened on a PMS Wednesday! I kid you not. It was a hoot!

I think I was one of Tango Wine's first customers when I walked in about a year ago. I had just moved to San Diego and was looking for something really good and not too expensive. I had some bad experiences before when asking for a nice bottle of wine under $10 but the woman at Tango who helped me guided me right to a really nice Malbec red wine from Argentina. I have to say I felt empowered at that point and now I understand Malbecs and more. I feel my understanding of wine has evolved tremendously and by attending some of the Tango Wine tastings. This recommendation is a big thumbs up for Tango to thank them for being my wine guide and always taking the time to answer my questions about wine. They are the best wine store and wine bar in San Diego in my opinion and I am sincere in my 5/5 recommendation.

I heard about Tango Wine from an e-newsletter I got forwarded from a friend of mine....the newsletter was so pretty and fun to read that i had to check it out! Tango Wine is a retail store with a wine tasting room and the location in Little Italy is super cute - an old brick building and with a view over the harbor. THEY HAVE PARKING!! :) They have really nice wines for around $15/bottle as well as beautiful high end stuff that are even labeled "wines to impress your boss" (can it get any easier?). They help you to your car and can also deliver for no additional cost if you buy cases and live in the area. They also have wine tasting events for the public as well as reserve out their tasting room for private events. I love going shopping for wine in the weekends and Tango Wine is a new fun and interesting place to buy and drink wine.
