Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Whether you’re considered the somm of your friend group or responsible for keeping your local Whole Foods restocked in two-buck chuck, the Austin Wine Merchant has a bottle with your name on it. It would be an understatement to say that the staff merely knows wine; John and his team have an almost encyclopedic knowledge of regions, grapes, tasting notes, vineyards and winemakers as well thoughtful pairing advice. Expect an extensive selection of Old and New World wines and Champagne, along with a discerning liquor selection that includes hard-to-find mezcals. Austin Wine Merchant has a loyal customer base that flocks to the shop on Wednesdays and Saturdays for tastings with experts.
