Pourtal Wine Bar's “green goals” include providing a high proportion of “Nature Wines” that are beholden to the commitment of sulphur-free and organic grape growing, or drawn from the culture of “Bio-Dynamism”. Mindful of this, they attempt to leave as small an imprint as possible through their search for sustainably raised grapes from wine farmers.

Trend recycled glass countertops throughout, FSC cedar wood, sustainable hardwood tables, dual flush toilets, soy stain concrete floor (no chemicals use to preserve), all glues and paint low VOC, waterless urinal, LED and flourescents when possible, self service filtered water (no bottled water, sparkling or still), ...... These are just some of the things featured at the Pourtal Wine Bar venue.

Pourtal Wine Bar will be featuring an entire Tasting Tour of Randall Grahm's special Rhone, esoteric and Biodynamic Estate wines from Bonny Doon Vineyards.
Through their Angels Share Happy Hour from 4-6 pm, profits will benefit the UCSC Chancellors Fund.

Thursday night's they have a "free corkage" night, meaning if anyone buys the bottle at the retail price, they will provide the service to open it at the bar for small groups of people.
