In search of an early Happy Hour meeting with a colleague found us at House Wine on a Friday afternoon at 4:00pm. Marc and I have visited this quaint wine bar a couple of times in the past, both times impressed with the wine by the glass offerings. Yesterday was no different. I asked for a glass of red, commenting that I have really been enjoying Italian wines of late. The wine steward without hesitation recommended a popular Montepulciano from the Abruzzo Region in Italy. The wine list description accurately describes this lovely wine – “bright berries, herbs, juicy cherries, with a hint of vanilla”.
The weather was warm for this time of the year, so we enjoyed our wine out on the deck, with a small cheese platter. A perfect way to celebrate the end of a busy and memorable week of music making!
If you are in the Barton Springs area, I encourage a visit to House Wine, as “unpretentious and inclusive as Austin itself.”
