carol and hamid

Established in 2009

Hamid and Carol Pouya have a passion for fine wine.
Together for 4 years, one of our common interest has always been good wine. We decided to take a turn in life and start something that allowed us to follow our passion as well as satisfying our enjoyment of meeting new people. Knowing that we can create an atmosphere of relaxation and fun along with education of great wine is a goal that we have.  To make people happy is an absolute desire and treat!.  We studied wine, took classes, researched and decided that Campbell had all the requirements we were looking for.
Carol continued her wine study at the Culinary Institute in Campbell and became a Certified Sommelier in March 2011  "Tessora" is my black Labrador, whom i adore, and in Italian it means " treasure".  Our gift to all that come in and experience our wine bar is that everyone can find a treasure of their own in our selection of boutique wines.
