Block 7 Wine Company
We've never understood how restaurants can get away with charging exponentially more for a bottle of wine then we'd pay at the store. (Don't even get us started on forking over $300 for a bottle of Grey Goose in exchange for some ottomans to sit on.) Finally, there's Block 7 Wine Company which has taken knowledgeable wine retail and added on a chic wine bar and café serving bottles with no upcharge from the retail prices. Clean and minimalist with some decidedly funky, artistic touches, Block 7 always attracts a young but sophisticated crowd.
Block 7 also runs one of the only dedicated wine tourism operations in Texas, with educational and inspiring (not to mention wine-soaked) full-service tours to wine regions around the world.
