New Austin Blurred Vines wine tasting room opens in East Austin
A new private tasting room, Blurry vines, opens in East Austin. Blurred Vines will open by reservation only at 901 East Seventh Street starting Saturday, November 13.
Blurred Vines will serve primarily wines from the West Coast – California, Washington, and Oregon – with a few bottles from other parts of the world. Guests reserve a 90-minute seat that includes a guided group tasting with the option to linger over additional glasses or purchase bottles to take home. The setting is generally intimate, with a maximum of 32 people per tasting.
Visitors can also purchase bottles without a tasting reservation, but will need to allow an hour to collect their purchases. Blurred Vines will also be launching a subscription box soon.
Blurred Vines comes from Senior Sommelier and Managing Partner Malon Lemoins (former Managing Director of downtown wine bar Cru), Cortney Lebens and Bill Poston, the latter two who have together opened a collection of resorts in Belize.
Nearby wine bars include LoLo, Salt & Time, and Apt 115, and on the west side of I-35 is Wanderlust Wine Co.
Blurred Vines will be open Wednesday to Saturday from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
