House Wine was doing the “houses-as-bars” thing in South Austin way before Rainey caught on. It’s a casual and cozy space and is all the things Austin used to be five years before you moved here. But before you start the “things have changed” rant, grab a table and order some charcuterie and a few of glasses of wine. Pretty soon, you’ll realize that maybe you do have stronger feelings about vintages than you thought and you’ll inquire about their tasting classes (for a friend).
