Our Story

At Esters, we’re all about curation and fun, without any pretension. Our wine shop & bar is the kind of destination where you can spend an evening leisurely exploring new vintages from our 250+ wine list, enjoy a glass or two of wine and some snacks with a friend during our weekly Sunday tastings, or stock up for a dinner party at home. Our chic and welcoming atmosphere encourages socializing with friends and fellow wine lovers, and our knowledgeable team allows for a sense of discovery. Think of us as your neighborhood clubhouse…for wine! 

As a member of the Rustic Canyon Family, we’re a partnership between co-owners Josh Loeb & Zoe Nathan and the group’s Wine Director Kathryn Coker & her husband Tug. Tucked inside a beautifully refurbished 1937 Art Deco building, our retail area features a library of wines focused on smaller producers whose stories we know and love, along with specialty products from friends and suppliers whose work inspires us. Our team will help you pick that perfect bottle for your wine collection or craft a gorgeous gift box for any occasion. 

You’ll need some food to soak up all that awesome wine. Acclaimed Chef Jeremy Fox (Rustic Canyon, Tallula’s & Birdie G’s) first developed our seasonal menu to complement Kathryn’s eclectic wine list, and now Executive Chef Jessica Liu He carries on that vision. Enjoy a variety of snacks and composed dishes for happy hour and dinner. Our gooey Grilled Cheese and addictive Lavender Almonds are not to be missed!

In addition to our casual, themed Sunday Tastings, we offer Private, Daytime Tastings every Wednesday-Friday on our outdoor patio, as well as Virtual Events. Visit our Events page for more details, and sign-up for our dedicated e-mail list below, so you can always be in the know!
