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, 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 250+ 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 carries on that vision. Enjoy a variety of snacks and composed dishes for dinner and weekend brunch. Our gooey Grilled Cheese and addictive Lavender Almonds are not to be missed!

Before the pandemic, we had a variety of events each month that ranged from casual, Sunday tastings to Wine Club Pick-Up Parties to guest appearances from sommelier and chef friends. We look forward to bringing those back one day, so sign-up for our dedicated e-mail list below, so you can always be in the know!
