Domaine LA opened its doors in September of 2009. The store’s focus is on honest wines from Europe and the United States. To us, that means wines made by people, not manufactured by corporations.

Jill Bernheimer, Owner
When I'm not at Domaine LA, I'm most likely to be found: in the Domaine LA parking lot. But seriously, at home. I spend a lot of time at work and I really take every chance I can to hang out at home with my husband and my two crazy dogs.
In high school I was voted most likely to: probably it was something like 'have a nervous breakdown' but we probably shouldn't print that...
Favorite band: In High School it was New Order and the Smiths. In college, De La Soul. In early adulthood, Belle & Sebastian. Now, I really like bad pop music like Katy Perry and such. It's been a devolution of sorts.
Favorite LA restaurant: It's hard to just name one but I'd have to say Night + Market.
Stranded on an island wine: Foillard Cote du Py, any vintage.
Most under-appreciated wine/wine region: It's hard to say Beaujolais because people who know wine generally understand how great wines from the region can be, but as far as the general public is concerned, Beaujolais.
Wine you always like to take to a party: Bubbly of some kind. Often Pow Blop Wizz.
First wine love: Foillard Cote du Py (2002 vintage, trekked back to the US from La Dernier Goutte in Paris).
