As you can imagine, the New Orleans wine scene is pretty restaurant based, though there are a few odd wine bars. In my old neighborhood, yes I’ve lived in New Orleans as well, the warehouse district has gone from being a bit of a backwater to being a downright hip hood with all the prerequisites: fancy restaurants, hot hotels, and of course a great wine bar.
W.I.N.O, the Wine Institute of New Orleans, is a modest spot that is fully equipped with fancy self-dispensing enomatic machines that allow you to take a taste or a pour of a great selection of wines. In addition to a help yourself wine bonanza, W.I.N.O. offers small plates and classes to help round out an evening or an education!
