    Located in an old house just off Barton Springs Road, this spot is unpretentious and comfortable. Great wine selection, simple food menu, live music and local beer make this a perfect hang out spot. Read more

    The cheese plates are way bigger than you'd expect and totally delicious!

    Half-priced open bottle Sunday FTW! Grab a spot on the north side covered patio and order through the window!

    Earth Day is a great day for some great wine. 5% of your total check goes to support eco-friendly causes.

    My new favorite spot! So adorable, lights outside and plenty of tables and couches. Had a glass of the Dancing Coyote which was divine. Definitely will be back!

    The best vino and ambiance of your own home- Gluten free crackers with their cheese plates - what more could you ask for?!

    Look up the bar's live music schedule before you go! Then, sit on the porch, drink some wine, and enjoy the live band.

    Love it here! They have great deals Monday night with the 10 wines for $20 and they have some awesome snack trays.

    A comfy old house with a brief but nicely chosen wine list, all at good prices, with additional daily specials ("happy hour every hour"). The food is simple but geared toward accentuating the wine.

    The large cheese platter is nice, the smoked salmon was lovely...wish they had service, you have to go up and order like a regular bar

    On Monday they have a killer special on high end bottles of wine for $20.

    Grab a big comfy chair with a cheese plate and bottle of vino. You won't want to leave.

    The cheese plates are kinda disappointing. No meats either. Sad trombone.

    On Sundays all their open bottles left over from Saturday night are half price by the glass.

    If you aren't in the mood for wine, the Scrimshaw pilsner is quite good.
