    We were at The Wine Room last week (we're currently still in Aruba right now) and loved it. If you love wine, love trying new wine, etc. then it should be right up your alley. It's a very small place and they're only open on Friday and Saturdays nights. Call or email ahead of time to make sure he has space/time for you. Monrick is the owner and it's a one man operation - he is very knowledgeable about wine so it was great to sit and talk to him as he suggested different wines to try. He provides snacks as well (cheese, bread, olives, etc.) Price is $75/person. It's located in a strip mall called The Orange Plaza on the main highway between downtown and the high rise hotels (near Divi golf course). Just look for the Red Fish restaurant - it's in that area and it's located way in the back of the strip mall.

    Thanks,
    We were there for about 3 1/2 hours and had about 4 different wines, a port, and snacks (gouda wrapped with nice salami, an aged cheese, olives, baguette and oil.) He will give you his undivided attention and help you pick out wines to drink the for evening based on what you like. It's like sampling wine with a good friend...a good friend who knows ALOT about wine. Not sure if we picked other wines if the price would have been more or less. We were just there for the experience. Send Monrick an email and ask him. He's a great guy!

    After reading on the BB about the wine tasting I decided to book it for our family of 7. I made arrangements in April for a Dec. wine tasting and then booked my other dinners around it. We reconnected in November to go over wine preference and tapas and thought we were good to go for our evening. We arrived at Orange Plaza for our 9pm wine tasting to find everything closed and number posted on door was out of service. I emailed the owner and he "forgot" about our date. We then spoke over the phone and while he was very apologetic, I couldn't really get a true or straight answer about what had happened to his missing our scheduled evening. While he appeared sincere in his apparent missed appointment, he tried to make it up to us by trying to reschedule or do a tasting at our hotel. We were leaving in a few days and had already made dinner plans so this was not going to happen. He dropped off a bottle of red wine and a sparkling wine with a note of apology (which was a nice touch).
    We love wine and really didn't need to go to a wine tasting but thought it would be different and fun to do as a family group. I am going to assume from the dropped off wine, that was what he was going to use for the wine tasting so from that I can say that the wine is not of a high caliber. If you like good wine, you can pick up better wine on your own to enjoy. We won't be rescheduling...
