  1. […] at home. There is a reason Vino Vino recently received a “Silver” in the Good Taste Report’s “Austin’s Best Wine Stores”. This is truly a deserving treasure nestled in the Hyde Park […]

  2. I was both excited and disappointed to see Vinosity ranked bronze in your list of Austin win stores. Vinosity has a wide variety of great wines at reasonable prices and the staff is great at helping you find what you want, especially for novices like me. Their weekly tasting (Saturday afternoons) and weekly wine flights are great for helping you to find something new and fun and be sure you like it when you take a bottle home.

  3. Hi, Ian…

    I like Vinosity. I like the selection and staff.
    I, also, am a fan of the other contenders in the bronze category. They are all strong stores and have extensive selection and staff, for the most part. With over 350 places to buy wine in the Austin area, that says a lot.
    Thanks for waving.
    Cheers.

  4. […] Research more about this from here […]

  5. Do you know where i can find 1996 Bollinger Grand Annee?…. NO R.D. please…. i would take 1000 bottles if it was available..
