This is Houston’s first “real” wine bar, and the one where most Houstonians probably tasted their first orange wine, natural wine or first glass of sherry. The selection, curated by owner Mike Sammons and sommelier Adele Corrigan is, by far, the city’s largest (the wines by the glass list is practically a mile long) and weirdest. They also have a great beer selection that rotates seasonally with emphasis on local brews and the hardest working panini press in the city. Though 13 Degrees broke the mold many years ago, it remains as relevant today as it did on day one.
