The Quartz Tasting Bar

One of the most unique and beautiful features of the main tasting area at Yao Family Wines is our oval-shaped, pure-quartz tasting bar. Available to seat more than twenty guests at a time, the quartz tasting bar is the "hub" of the main room, gorgeously back lit by a series of LED lights placed underneath the quartz itself.

Serving as the centerpiece of the Quartz Tasting Bar is a one-of-a-kind glass and light installation created by Rey Viquez, from Rey3 Design Collaborative in Los Angeles (who is also the architect of the building). Consisting of 200 red glass wine bottles accented by multiple pin-lights, this unique piece of art provides a stunning yet elegant accent to the room.

The main room is also where guests will find two display cases with one-of-a-kind memorabilia highlighting the multifaceted career of Yao Ming, from his time in the NBA with the Houston Rockets, through the formation of Yao Family Wines, to his humanitarian efforts with WildAid.

The Quartz Tasting Bar is a wonderful place to enjoy any of our three tasting menus, or simply enjoy a glass of wine with friends and family.
