About Uncorked  

With more than 600 wines from all over the world, Uncorked is a retail shop that features award-winning wines as well as hard-to-find boutique selections. For our hops and barley fans, Uncorked offers craft beers, both domestic and imported!

THE TASTING BAR! Anytime we're open, there are always 8 wines on our tasting list for you to choose from to create your own unique wine-tasting experience. From Chardonnays to Cabernet Franc to Carignane, Bonarda, and beyond, there's something for every palate.

In addition, free corkage with local restaurants, unique wine accessories, custom gift baskets, gourmet cheese, olive oils, and special gourmet treats are just another few reasons to stop by one of our two locations in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach and find out why we are the Best Tasting Wine Shop(s) in the South Bay.

ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

Jeff-Bonafede

Jeff Bonafede
Co-Founder

With a Sicilian surname like Bonafede, one must assume that wine is coursing through his veins. Spend a few minutes with him, and you’ll experience his phenomenal palate, knowledge, and passion for wine. But what really comes through is that look in his eye when he’s tasting something new- he gets excited once again, like a kid at Christmas, and you understand why he’s in the wine business. Before opening Uncorked Jeff worked in the trenches as a rep, a wine cellar consultant, and a specialist in procurement of rare and collectible wines.

Kathy Knoll

Kathy Knoll
Co-Founder

The ambitious local lady that is the drinking oops driving force behind Uncorked. On the board of the Hermosa Chamber of Commerce and a bona fide Social Butterfly who migrates to wine bars whether she’s in local Silver Lake or all parts of the world such as Italy or Chile. Originally partial to Sauvignon Blanc, since owning the wine shop, Kathy’s tastes are as varied as the many talents she brings to the tasting bar, opting for Viognier today and Petite Sirah tomorrow.

Gerry-Vazquez

Gerry Vazquez
Co-Founder

When not buzzing around with Uncorked or real estate, Gerry enjoys spending time with her three boys, laughing with sitcoms and can be found writing her next play. Mostly, she prefers to chill with an Oregon Pinot or going back to her New York roots with Niagara Area Ice Wines to fill her sweet tooth.
