Bon Vin (San Diego, California)

Bon Vin, a wine shop and wine bar.  542-5th Avenue, San Diego, California, USA in the Gaslamp Area.  It was fairly quite when we were there.  They sell wine from California, France, Italy and Spain.  There is a tasting room in the back and a sit up bar where we sat.  In front there are comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy a glass of wine.  To go with our wine we had a cheese plate with three different types of cheese.  Bon Vin is located in an old heritage building. The plaque on the front of the building offers this information about the building:
The Lewis Brick Block, Stingaree Hotel 1887.  Known as the Lewis Brick Block, the upper floors were referred to as the Stingaree Hotel in reference to the area's red light district.  The main floor was used for cigar and tobacco shop, billiard hall and revival center.   This Victorian building is characterized by decorative b rick arches over the second story windows and stepped brickwork along the roof line.
It is a very nice relaxing place to have a glass of wine, some cheese and let the day slip by.
