Swirl and sip on this: The experts at Wine Enthusiast Magazine dug deep to find America’s best wine bars, and one local spot made the cut. Narrowing the list down to 20 vino venues across 20 different cities, Austin’s Winebelly was selected as one of the top wine bars in the country.

Wine Enthusiast notes Winebelly’s “mellow, antique-filled lair” whose menu “spans the globe and deserves to be explored.” Dallas' Veritas Wine Room and Houston's Beckrew Wine House also placed on the list. 

Located at 519 W. Oltorf St., Winebelly offers a thoughtfully curated wine menu complemented by Spanish-Mediterranean-style tapas. Also serving craft cocktails and brews, the charming South Austin gem is perfect for a casual conversation accented with a top-of-the-line gourmet experience.

The knowledgeable and friendly staff will gladly walk you through the extensive wine list, which features more than 100 different bottles and glasses to choose from, showing you exactly why they were voted one of the best wine in the U.S.

If you haven’t ventured to this enchanting destination yet, now’s your chance. On September 2, Winebelly will celebrate its two-year anniversary with $2 glasses of wine and bar snacks. I mean, wine not?
