To make un-fine wine, simply place grapes beneath a silk pillow, repeatedly mash your head against it, and then wring the pillowcase into a nearby mouth. Taste traditionally produced fine wines with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get a wine tasting class for two people, including cheese-plate pairings, at House Wine (a $30 value). An intimate culinary casa, House Wine was recently voted both Best Bar Ambience for 2009 by Austin Chronicle readers. Inside its cozy quarters, professional instructors guide students through a comprehensive tasting of six distinct wines. Classes occur naturally every Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday afternoon at 5 p.m., making it easy for workweek warriors to take a break, put down their swords, and duel an accompanying guest with tasty toothpicks, harmless stemware, and razor-sharp compliments.


House Wine won Best Bar Ambiance from readers of the Austin Chronicle. More than 120 Yelpers give it an average rating of four stars, and seven Citysearchers give it an average of 4.5 stars.

  • Yep, she's a gem, a doll, a real dame. And even though you just met her she already feels like an old friend that you've known forever. That's House Wine. – marc s.
  • I love hanging out at House Wine. The atmosphere just perfect. A nice place to sip some some wine, chat with friends, or just watch the color of the sky fade from pink to blue to black. – Conrad R.

House Wine

Tired of simply dressing up her rooms, designer Kerry White needed a way to engage clients on a deeper sensory level. Adopting the motto of “wine, art, and song”, she opened House Wine to match her eye for interiors with the refined tastes of vintages and the lilting sound of live, local music. Sporting both an earth-toned dining area and sun-dappled outdoor lounge replete with cushy, white couches, the wine bar leaves plenty of space for guests to explore an extensive wine list, sample cheese plates, and clasp handheld bites of pineapple-cinnamon empanadillas. Bards from across Austin fill the space with tuneful sounds, and local artists bring life to walls with their paintings of abstract landscapes.

More recently, House Wine has partnered with a catering company, BLISAustin.com to expand their culinary offerings. BLIS' culinary staff works with House Wine's sommeliers to create the best food and wine pairing experience possible.
