Bob’s Well Bread Bakery, the iconic bakery and restaurant at 550 Bell St. in Los Alamos, has released Well Bread Wines, a private label also created by Doug Margerum. The three wines — a sauvignon blanc, grenache rosé and grenache — are available to bakery guests by either the glass or bottle.
The current releases are the 2018 Well Bread Pink (rosé of grenache), the 2017 Well Bread White (sauvignon blanc) and the 2018 Well Bread Red (grenache).
Since its inception in 2014, Bob’s Well Bread has attracted both local residents and travelers. The bakery and Bob Oswaks’ entire family are committed to products that are handmade with only the finest ingredients and natural starters. Bob’s doesn’t use any preservatives and strives to source local ingredients using farmers and growers who practice the purest growing initiatives.
Its commitment to being “well bread” means doing good things, supporting the community and donating what it doesn’t sell to local food banks. These practices showcase Los Alamos and the Central Coast and have elevated the region to a respected culinary destination.
Also new at Bob’s is a “Take-Away Trailer” outside the bakery that will allow customers to skip long lines and take bread, pastries or coffee to go on the weekends.
Oswaks, chef David Jeffers and head baker Scott Smith are pleased with the addition, according to Oswaks.
“We were eager to find a solution to taking care of our customers on weekends who were daunted by the long times for a simple pick up of a few pastries or coffee,” he said.
