Oenophiles at The Cellar Door stock vintages from around the world and local flavors from California and Texas, acquainting students in 90-minute wine-education classes. Students learn flavors that may include chardonnay, malbec, pinot noir, sauvignon blanc, and pinot grigio, experiencing a broader variety of beverages than a soda machine. During lessons, instructors illustrate the subtle differences between the wines’ colors and how they interact with the nose and tongue. The facility’s comely décor surrounds groups in classic wine-themed scenery, with a mural of a Tuscan vineyard and a statue of Sophia Loren made from grapes. After class, students may purchase bottles of wine, allowing them to refresh their knowledge during the following dinner. The Wine Cellar also hosts live music performances every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m.
The Cellar Door
The sommeliers at The Cellar Door, Katy's only bistro and 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. At the bistro, the onsite certified chefs craft a range of artisan food made specifically to pair with the wine from within a newly remodeled kitchen. The newly revamped menu features selections include flatbreads such as the Bordeaux Meat Lover's and appetizers such as beef sliders. Visitors can also charter the banquet room for private, catered tasting parties, during which they can design their own labels, or join their wine club.
