House Wine Austin, LLC | Founder & COO
In 2008, Kerry White found a 1940s-style home, and House Wine was established. Within its walls, she combined her interior design career with her passion for wine, creating a vibe so welcoming that patrons feel like they’ve been invited to a house party. Comfort and thoughtful wines unite, bringing people together for conversation and contemplation, no television in sight. White definitely created something special, and Austin knows it. House Wine has won Best Bar Ambience as well as the Austin Chronicle‘s Best Wine Bar, People’s Choice Wine Bar, and was a finalist for Best Wine Selection. Her mission for House Wine is simple: The staff and community must be as diverse as Austin herself. Family-owned, sustainable, organic, biodynamic and natural wines from across the globe fill the racks, and the bar is committed to expanding palates with an amazing offering of 85 wines by the glass. The bar also hosts a wine club and wine classes instructed by Gretchen Meinhardt, GM, WSET3. And because Austin isn’t Austin without its thriving community of artists and musicians, House Wine also hosts events with silent auctions and fundraisers, donating to organizations like SAFE, Caritas and HAAM.
