House Wine and Spy House Tasting Lounge
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.
Open on Friday and Saturday nights, House Wine's Spy House Tasting Lounge features unique tastings to explore the enigmatic wines of boutique vineyards from around the world, curated by sommelier Blake Ethridge. Guests can enjoy bottle service and cello music, and pair wine samples with artisan cheeses and tapas. 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.
