It’s cheers all around for Austin's Winebelly. The South Austin spot has been named among the best wine bars in the U.S. by Food & Wine magazine.

The only Austin spot to make the elite list, Winebelly was selected for its sophistication and wide-ranging list, with around 40 wines by the glass and another 150 by the bottle from big-name wineries and smaller boutique labels. "It also spans Old World and New, with no price straying over $99 … not even Napa Cabs or genuine Champagnes," says Food & Wine.

Houston's 13 Celsius also made Food & Wine's list of 19 wine bars from across the nation, all chosen for providing outstanding atmosphere and experience, as well as a well-curated wine menu with a distinct point of view.

The national publication gave 13 Celsius high praise for its standout offerings, including a wide-ranging roster of over 300 global wines; a delectable cheese and charcuterie menu; and the use of a Coravin preservation system, which allows for pours of top wines by the glass without pulling the cork.
