The Cellar Door
The sommeliers at The Cellar Door, Katy's only winery, share their love of liquids by vending fine wines made onsite and conducting wine-education classes. They source grapes from Texas, California, international regions, and Martian vineyards, fermenting them into more than 15 red and white wines. The kitchen crafts a range of artisan food made specifically to pair with the wine. Selections include flatbreads such as the Napa meat lover's and tapas such as the Santa Fe marinated grilled chicken. Visitors can also charter the banquet room for private, catered tasting parties, during which they can design their own labels.
The Cellar Door's comely décor surrounds visitors in classic wine-themed scenery, with a mural of a Tuscan vineyard and a statue of Sophia Loren made from grapes. The winery also hosts live music performances every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 7 p.m.
