Tapas, like books, cars, and husbands, are designed to be shared with those closest to you. Indulge in the best of Spanish-style sharing with today’s Groupon to The Cellar Door winery in Katy. Choose from two options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of tapas, cheese plates, and desserts.
- For $12, you get a cheese plate for four people (up to a $14.95 value) and two desserts (an $11.90 value, up to a $26.85 total value).
The Cellar Door's taste technicians satisfy epicureans with a mouthwatering tapas menu of sweet nibblets and robust culinary creations. Nosh on dishes of shrimp with grilled white and green asparagus ($11.95) or grilled-beef tenderloin, served with pico de gallo, cotija cheese, spanish rice and plantain chips ($9.95). Cheese plates ($6.95–$14.95) feed one, two, or four guests and allow diners to sample dairy in its most solid form without having to visit subarctic dairy farms. Dessert dishes, including chocolate truffles laced with hazelnut ($5.95), delight sweet teeth and incite bursts of sugar-teared joy.
With whimsically painted landscapes, granite tabletops, and stone accents, The Cellar Door carries a rustic elegance, much like the entrance to a gothic cathedral free from the presence of soul-stealing gargoyles. As an added pleasure-inducing courtesy, live music fills The Cellar's chambers every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday starting 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.
The Cellar Door's comely decor 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.
