The wines served at the bar at The Beverly Hilton include a selection from California, as well as wines from Spain, Australia and other regions. You have two places to hit up for some wine inside the Four-Star Beverly Hills hotel: Trader Vic’s Lounge and the Lobby Bar. Of course, tiki-themed Trader Vic’s Lounge specializes in fruity tropical concoctions, like its famous mai tais. However, the bar does have a decent-sized wine list with reds, whites and bubblies served by the stem and bottle. It mostly concentrates on California selections, such as the 2005 Austin Hope Syrah from Paso Robles or the 2002 Viader from Napa Valley; but it also has a number of international wines, like the 2008 Albarino Fillaboa from Rias Baixas, Spain, and the 2005 Peter Lehman cabernet sauvignon from the Barossa Valley in Australia. The Lobby Lounge serves wine as well, but it’s a much smaller selection compared to the list of its tiki-themed cousin. Again, most of the pours hail from California, though there are a couple of international wines thrown into the mix. You could order anything, from a bottle of 2002 Louis Roederer Cristal from Reims, France, to a 2009 Fess Parker riesling from Santa Barbara.
